“Lovely pasta, great service.”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I ate here with friends one night. The waitresses were friendly & got us seated with cold water & menus immediately. They showed us the specials also. I ordered the spagetti marinara with a tomato based sauce, it's also available with a white wine based sauce. There was plenty of fresh seafood in the meal, it was beautiful. And they bought out an extra little bowl for the mussel shells & prawn tails.
My friends ordered a risotto, & also the spagetti & meatballs. They were very happy with their dinners also! Next time were in Coolum, we'll be back! Thank you x

“Never disappoints”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We have dined at Castro's Bar & Restaurant on two separate visits to Coolum. Both times the meals were exceptional. The staff are very friendly and entertaining. The restaurant can be a little cramped and hot if you are seated inside, but the atmosphere makes up for this.

“A nice night out”
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.

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
