Quite a good range of produce but prices are very high and no where else to buy on the island. Good for icecreams etc

Our group stopped off at Castaways for lunch and we were greatly surprised with the food we recieved. The salads were huge, burgers delicious and sweet potato chips to die for....not to mention the chilli jam! Spoke to Lea and she was an amazingly friendly lady who made my day (on top of the delicious food).

We ate at the restaurants on 3 occasions during stay (1 x lunch & 2 x dinner). All meals were great - kids loved the burgers. Very generous portions and reasonably priced. Suggest booking as it can get busy.
