Great customer service from the staff! Food portions were large, but both me and my partner didn’t enjoy our meals.

Very disappointed with quality & presentation of food. The chicken strips we ordered had no resemblance to the description in the menu. Definitely not value for money. This was our 4th visit, the 1st under the new management, unlikely to return. A shame given the wonderful location

The temp of one of our meals was below expectations and came out well before the other dishes but otherwise good food and service

Our package included a glass of house wine or beer. The waitress never pointed out what was available under this offer so my daughter (who was the birthday girl and had no idea what the package included) ordered a glass of Rose and our other guest who doesn't drink alcohol ordered a Coke. We were given no discount off these two drinks which I think is poor.

Unpretentious dining with superb views. Food was good and courses were well spaced which suited us well for our long lunch. Not much information was offered about the food nor the stone dining experience but the service was pleasant enough. Would happily dine here again.

I chose Castaways, our local resort to propose to my girlfriend as we walked the beach. We had the most amazing weekend at the resort. A beautiful, friendly environment from the spa / massage to the restaurant staff and decadent menu. Thanks for being a part of our history.

I've always loved Karioitahi, and it was really interesting and lovely to see what Castaways has to add to the experience. Brilliant atmosphere and staff. Delicious food. Absolutely loved it! Thank you.
