“A nice night out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

We went to Castro's to celebrate a family birthday. The food and service were excellent. I was even able to order a favourite meal that was not on the menu. While it was raining outside the atmosphere inside was excellent although a little cramped for room. I will go back again.

“best one in the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

we were there for dinner and ordered marinara pasta and rump steak Pizza, that was great tasty, tender, juicy and in one word YUM.
try the pizza or steak all food good and rasonable price.
booking is essential but if you have time you can wain for 15min to 20 min, depend on how busy it is. and then have a seat.
enjoy the taste and beautiful beach

“Out of this world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

What a dining experience! Food amazing-tasty, generous, exquisite. Service-exceptional, even though it was crazy busy when we went, the staff were attentive and friendly. We had rebooked by the time we had finished our entrees! Prawn dumplings an prosciutto wrapped scallops...divine. Do not miss this experience, we walked away with full bellies, smiles and a real feel good feeling, I am a fan for life :)

“Worth Repeat Visits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Recently revisited Castro's on a holiday to Coolum. If anything had changed from my previous visit 12 months ago it would be that the food was even better. Pasta, pizza plus choices to cater for any taste and appetite. Just sitting in the restaurant sipping a glass of very well priced chilled wine while smelling the tantalising aromas from the food cooking was bliss. We had a prawn pasta dish and wood fired pizza to share and both were wonderful and very ample servings. Would have loved to try one of the desserts but couldn't possibly fit it in. Top restaurant, very well priced food and alcohol, friendly staff and great atmosphere. Well worth repeat visits. Suitable for all age groups.

“Fantastic food and Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Always make it a point of going to Castor's when In Coolum, so have been to this restaurant a few times now.
The food is always excellent and is the service! We've had a range of dishes from Paella, steak, pizza, and always delicious and reasonably priced! Highly recommend this one!
