Our golf group of 8 usually ate here twice in a week on previous trips and everyone rated Castro's highly.Our experience last week was poor,it would beg the question whether it has changed hands or policy. 6 of us ordered the shared fish/seafood stew.($60 per Couple) For $180 there was a adequate presentation of Atlantic Salmon/Snapper,but each couple was allocated 1 prawn and 1 sea scallop 4 calamari rings,4 mussels and lots of potato filler per 2 sharers. 2 baby octopus meant half an octopus for 4 people. This is not acceptable,we will not return. The usual Coffin bay oysters were not on the menu.

This restaurant is very popular and for good reason. The food is delicious and the service very good. They have takeaway pizzas which are great tasting and very reasonably priced.Would recommend for a good night out in Coolum.

Celebrated a family birthday at Castro's and had a great night. Ordered a dish not on the menu and it was no hassle for the staff and delish. It was crouded for a Wednesday night but good food, service, value for money made a night to remember. Enjoy a meal there.

We got take aways from here a couple of times and the food was declicious. We wished we had found time to eat in during our stay in Coolum as the atmosphere seemed great and the staff very friendly.

We go to Castro's every now & again. The Steak is always a winner.
On Thursday nights they have a $20 Steak night. Choice of Fillet, Sirlion or Rump with mash and veg or salad and fries.
I have to say for $20 I wasn't expecting a lot, however it was just as good as the steak on their actual menu. Pleasantly surprised.
Their staff are friend and down-to-earth, there's a good vibe and always a nice meal.
