“Your taste buds will thank you”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We went for a family members Birthday and the meal was divine. The staff were friendly and helpful. The steaks were excellent, the seafood marinara was delicious and the pizza was scrumptious. Loved the lemon margarita, everyone enjoyed their food and we all had a great time. We will be returning.

“Great Value for Money”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Castro's is a place well worth the effort to experience some great food at very reasonable prices. If you want an even better deal dine on Wednesday Night and get the 'Wood-fired' Pizza and/or Pasta Specials. The pizza [which we shared] was the best in Coolum with delicious flavours and a great crust that was just as a pizza should be - crusty but not brittle. We followed this with some pasta which again had wonderful flavours. My wife tried a cocktail and would recommend these while I tried a glass of shiraz which was recommended to me by the friendly waitress. It was delicious and reasonably priced. We completed our drinks with a glass of Sav Blanc [also recommended] and again a great choice at a very reasonable price. We will be back for sure.

“Very Disappointed!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

My parents and I went back for our second visit to this restaurant. Our booking was early as we know it gets very busy on a Saturday night. We arrived early and ordered a bottle of wine and the place started to fill up quickly. We ordered our meal and waited...and waited. Finally our meals came. Dad had the seafood risotto which was only luke warm. It was taken away and the waitress who informed us that they "would remake" his meal. Wrong! It came back microwaved, but at least was hot enough for him to eat. We had our main meal and wanted to order dessert. We waited and we waited. Nobody came to serve us. We just got up and paid and left. We realised that as well as a full restaurant they also had a function room full of guests. Surely if you knew you had a full restaurant plus a function room full of people you would get enough staff for the evening. Actually we were lucky by comparison to another couple who I think waited 45 minutes for their main meal. We visit Coolum every year and Castro's at least 2-3 times when we are there but extremely disappointed with the last visit.

“Fantastic food, great takeaway service”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Definitely one of the best pizza's i've ever had! Takeaway service was quick and convenient. They were just putting the last of our order together as we arrived, and our food (pizzas/pastas) were all tasty and freshly cooked.
Would love to return if back in Coolum in the future.

“Best restaurant in coolum”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We eat here regularly. Thursday is 20 dollar steak night. This would have to be the best value on the Coast. Dan the head chef is amazing and we have never been dissapointed. Chief the barman makes the best mojitos this side of Havana. We always bring visitors to Coolum here, now they expect it. Great place for locals and visitors.
