This is one of the most lovley family run restaurants in Panormos. The food is truly Cretan, the decor is very natural and open and the staff are extremely attentive and friendly. You can be assured of a warm welcome from Manolus and staff at Kastros.

We could have eaten at Kastro everyday! We loved this restaurant! First there are plenty of choices, with fresh quality products, and authentic and generous cuisine... What else to say? Our waiters Klydi and Yannis were so friendly and very professional. The restaurant manager Manolis was also a wonderful person and took good care of us beyond any expectations! Thanks... More

The restaurant owner was very accommodating. Kastro offers a versatile menu for both adults and children. It was nice to sample true Cretan cuisine. Lovely wine selection, thanks for making us so welcome and for the Riki shots. Would recommend to others.

We just went there for a beer/wine and a snack. But they have such and authentic honest menu that we choose more than a snack. We were not dissapointed , you could taste the fresh herbs and the meat was very tender. Even my 3,5 year old son ate everything with great joy. And the white wine was very good.... More

We visit Kastro two years ago and we was impressed. We had a new visit this year and the food and service is still fantastic. The Kastro salad and the chicken souvlaki is good choices!

Savor the variety, delicacy and high quality of the guaranteed cuisine of Kastro! We always use extra virgin olive oil, as required by the famous Cretan diet.
