Amazing little gem overlooking the bay of Castara... relax with a Carib, look at hummingbirds, let the gentle breeze caress your sunburned skin - and at last but not least try their amazing coconut curry prawns and grilled fish; and why not finish off the trip to paradise with a smooth sumptuous Chocolate Mousse....

Very good dinner, great friendly staff, and good company. What more would you want? We didn't make dinner at sunset but that would be spectacular.

We had a nice birthday meal with our daughter and her boyfriend. Lovely location overlooking the bay, and wonderful sunset. Food was quite nice, although the cocktails are overpriced outside of Happy hour. Probably the best restaurant food in Castara.

Now admittedly we started with a tasting session on their "top draw" rum collection, which had tasting notes and was accompanied by added information from the owner, and maybe that got us in the mood. The staff were spot on, friendly and helpful. The food was good and the Jerk Chicken cooked "Gangsta" spiced was fantastic. The chocolate mousse was... More

We ate there three times during our week stay at Castara Retreats and the food was very good on each occasion. I particularly enjoyed the fresh fish, the caribbean meatballs and Keisha's delicious chocolate mousse. All the cocktails we tried were great, especially the Banana Daiquiri. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming. The view is spectacular and it... More

This was an incredible experience. Our waitress was very nice, the food is reasonably priced for this kind of view. Go there before sunset. You will love what you see.

The kitchen is about 100 feet above sea level,but the scenery at day and night time is amazing.the crystal clear waters and clear blue skies is a sight to behold. the food is prepared on site and is very tasty.the portions is ample enough for a hungry adult. the drive to this restaurant is worth it.

Keisha and Kareem provided an excellent service in the Restaurant! The food was very tasty, reasonably priced and served with a smile! I love cooking, and I enjoyed preparing my own meals in the Lodges I stayed in (Tamarind & Firefly) most of the time consisting of the fresh fish I’d bought from the fishermen who gathered at the beach....
