We didn’t stay there but went to look around as our daughter and family had talked about going there and asked us to check it out. The whole complex is at the top of a steep pathway leading up to a small car park. There are 15 what they call rustic tree-house style, self-catering accommodations. We asked to see a... More

We stayed at Castara Retreats and enjoyed a couple wonderful meals here. The food was fantastic and the views could not be more perfect. If you are staying here and decide to enjoy cooking your own fresh fish definitely ask for take out potato wedges and enjoy a wonderful rum punch.

We ate here on many occasions during our 2 week stay at Castara Retreats. The menu is small but I could have happily eaten here for another 2 weeks without getting bored. The Catch of the Day was always a treat and the Lamb Curry, Wow. I manage to sample most of the Virgin Cocktails and thoroughly recommend. The service... More

We had a good meal there but nothing out of the ordinary and it was quite expensive. You can get as good and even better meals else where in Castara Bay for much less The view is nice, you see the sunset and they have hummingbird feeders so lots of hummingbirds.

A bit more expensive than the other places but worth it. This is the place in Castara that offers something else and more than the other restaurants (which all have similar menues). Some favourites were Catch of the Day (Bonito), the Sirloin Steak, the Shrimps (starter), the Spinnach Ravioli. Happy Hour (17-18). Half price on Castara's best drink offers.

Drove over on Saturday. Booked in for an evening meal with newly acquired friends from Wales who were staying in the superb accomodation. There can't be many better dining venues on the island. This looks straight down onto the fantastic beach, with the sun sinking behind us. After a happy rum punch, great food, all fresh, cooked in really modern... More

We found Castara Beach on our first day with the car and loved it. We had a picnic but went to this bar for a drink and liked it so much we returned the next day as well.

If you are in Castara, eat here. They have a happy hour with 2 for 1 cocktails, which were all amazing. They are up high, on a hill so you will have to do some walking to get there. But once you do, their two dining areas are clean, spacious with excellent views of the ocean and birds in the... More

The food here is delicious and the view over Castara wonderful. The humming birds are a lovely source of entertainment. The best restaurant in Castara.
