Review: Castaways Bistro
15 June 2017
Right on the water’s edge, Castaways Bistro serves up fresh food and fabulous drinks with a side order of stunning views. Fal River reveals all...
Castaways Bistro is a little gem nestled in Mylor Harbour- a charming rural spot, tucked into the mouth of a sleepy creek on the west side of the Fal River. The contemporary interior, is open-planned spacious and light. Our table for two was on the first-floor mezzanine, where we enjoyed blissful views out across the mile-wide estuary. Castaways offers a perfect blend of Italian-style cuisine, quality seafood, locally sourced produce, draught beers and great wine. There's a friendly and relaxed atmostphere, and great service - A sure treat during lazy summer days!
What we ordered...
Castaways has a mouth watering menu with great great variety, from classic pizzas & burgers, to sharing platters and seafood including lobsters and oysters landed on their own doorstep. Not only that, the daily specials board was packed full of tasty looking temptations.
To start: (Perfectly cooked) White Bait in a chilli crumb, with salad and a zesty lime mayonnaise & Crispy Coated Calimari with Rocket Salad and Aioli.
Main: The Homemade Steak Burger on lightly toasted ciabatta with fresh salad, and fries & Seared scallops wrapped in pancetta on a rocket and parmesan salad.
