I find we can always rely on the food Castro's has on their menu. Never had a bad meal. Their duck is to die for!

Waitress was able to answer all questions asked about the menu which is always helpful. Nothing worse than a waitress who doesn't know what they're serving. Food met our expectations.

Have been here quite a few times on our getaways to Coolum. The food is consistently above average but for what you get it is quite overpriced. On a summers night in QLD humidity, the ceiling fans don't really cut it either - no one likes to get a sweat up while eating dinner.

My partner and I ate here twice and we loved it. Service was great, wine selection was good and specials were good too. I always like to ask the waiter what they suggest which is always yummy. Spaghetti marinara WHITE was delicious, the special lamb shanks and the special NZ pinot gris was yum. My favourite dish of the 2... More

It can be hard to get a table, so we usually buy take-away, which has always been pretty good, but on the one occasion we ate in the food was exceptional.

We love Castros and have done for years! Keep up the excellent service and meals. Great take away idea also, grab a pizza and head down to watch the sunset. (Don Carlos pizza is our fav!)
