We ate here as the reviews looked ok, I was keen to enjoy it as the restaurant is in a lovely position in the old town. Unfortunately the owner was very keen to get people into the restaurant but failed to look after us once we were seated. My chicken souvlaki tasted off and I had to leave it on the plate. The owner eventually took my plate but didn't even ask me if it was ok despite the fact it was obvious I hadn't eaten anything. There were too many people crammed into a small space so this also felt uncomfortable and spoilt what could have been a great ambience. We couldn't be bothered to complain at the time because the owner was clearly keen to get the next people in and it had already taken us ages to get his attention for the bill.
Sorry , loved the old town but this place needs to sort itself out.

We have been holidaying in Alonissos since 1998 and have two favourite restaurants. This is one of them. Nick is a generous giant of a man who owns and manages this restaurant in the Old Town. The sight of unctuous meat cooking on a spit draws you in. The food is consistently excellent and Nick's warm hospitality always makes us feel like old friends. The setting in the Old Town is joy to the soul. Highly recommended.

Six of us climbed and explored this historical village, and carefully looked at what the other restaurants offered. We decided on Kastro as the welcome was warm and very informative. We sat down to tasting many different dishes, but thought that the Cheese Bake was especially mouth-watering and the lamb was tender and flavorsome. The service was excellent and the buzz of happy chatter by other guests added to a wonderful atmosphere and a most enjoyable evening!

There is so much to a good meal...quality of product, dedication to the preparation and ambiance are all part of the meal at this lovely eatery. You feel immediately welcomed when you are seated - and the owner has a charisma that makes you feel as though you are part of the family. He is one of a kind, kind being the key:). Wonderful!

If you want to experience sensory overdrive, this is the place to be! After you climb the ancient steps and get to the upper historic landing to take in the views, you might think that you had just witnessed one of the most beautiful and calming sights of Greek island life. The panoramic views of the island, the terraced old village and the many distant islands are indescribable.

Then......when you regroup yourself and march up the last few steps into the Kastro (Castle), you feel as if you have stepped into another dimension! Or a set for a moving picture! You have arrived at the Kastro Restaurant.

This is not the same Greek fare you come to Greece for, it may seem similar but there is that extra touch to the cuisine delivered to your table. You can taste the difference. The grilled meats are done right and there is something special about the taste and flavor of the traditional dishes. All prepared and delivered by the owner, Chef Nectario.

If you want to get loose and relax, challenge your senses, and fill your belly with exceptional food, then this IS the restaurant.

And if that just isn't enough, Nectario might pull out the bouzouki and finally convince your sub conscience mind that you are in another world, long forgotten!!!!!
