Having been coming to Parga for 5 years, we have eaten in most of the restaurants and have our favourites. Every year we would dine at Castello once and normally one of us would leave disappointed with our meal. Having not eaten there for the past couple of years, we decided to give it another go. The setting is lovely and service polished, attentive and excellent. I was surprised to see their menus had never changed. Now starting to look dog eared and old. Most of the dishes were the same as well. I had the calamari lucia starter, which was overcooked calamari in a soup with potatoes. It just does not work. The calamari was like rubber and the potatoes were soggy and fell apart. My main pasta with crayfish had a very bland sugo. Very boring dish. Nice touches like sending over a brandy at the end of the meal but they need new menus and a better chef.

This place is so far up its own @rse it can probably see its own tonsils. Very ordinary food in ridiculous crockery at eye-watering prices. Wine list similarly overpriced and similarly pretentiously served - in a bucket of ice way out of our reach. This might have been OK if they had ever come back to top our glasses up but there are insufficient staff to provide the aspirational level of service that they so spectacularly fail to live up to. Avoid, there are much more honest, better places to eat in Parga.

The restaurant is a little bit hidden in an alley, but we found it with the help of signs. The cosy Castello restaurant was fully booked on a Saturday evening so we highly recommend to make a reservation. We had jumbo shrimps as a starter, and I had a soft lamb rack as main course. My avec had chicken in yoghurt and prune sauce. All the food was absolutely delicious, and very well cooked. As a side dish you could pick fried, boiled or oven baked potato or rice, which is a nice change for all the French fries in Parga. The restaurant has a wine cellar with a large variety of wines, with prices ranging from 10 to 40€ the bottle. The service was efficient and friendly, and we got a starter and a brandy on the house. Though the restaurant's prices are slightly higher than elsewhere in Parga (and we're talking about 1-2€, not 10€ more), the food is well worth the extra money.

Not he place for the hot nights, it is situated in a back alley where you won't get any breeze from the sea. But it's a lovely place with a great atmosphere and food. They have a cool glass ceiling over the wine cellar so you look down in it from the restaurant.
Mostly Italian and Greek food on the menu, and what we tried tasted really good. Especially the Ravioli.
With a friendly staff both our nights there were a pleasant experience.

I've been to Parga a couple of times and Castello is definitely one of my favourite spots. I was very surprised to see some bad critiques, as the restaurant is full every night and frequently visited by many of the yacht groups harbouring in Parga Port for the night. Booking in advance might be a good idea. I always found the staff extremely friendly and the food delicious, this year my favourite was the squid/soup as an entree.
