“Fantastique!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

My sister and I visited Casa de Castro last week in search of a light lunch. The cafe is lovely, simply decorated with fresh colours and original paintings dotted around on the walls. The garden is quaint with climbing roses and other flowers and a delight to sit in on a sunny day.The owner and his partner are ever so friendly and welcoming. All the food, including the delicious spinach quiche that my sister and I ate, are baked in the cafe. We didn't have coffee this time but it sure smelt great, so will have to go back.......

“This is a delightful place for coffee and pastries in Southsea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

My wife and I have just arrived to live in Southsea and are discovering its advantages. Casa de Castro is just the job for 11 am coffee and pastries - we have found nothing better. Try their "pasteles de nata" Portuguese style, fantastic.

Highly recommended.
