Castaways Restaurant & Tiki Bar serves Cajun-Creole fare along with French and Caribbean dishes.
No Longer #1 in Cannon Beach
We have loved this place, and we were so looking forward to going back for our fourth time in three years. Unfortunately, it was so disappointing we will not be back, unless things drastically change. The drinks were mediocre, the service was poor and the food too heavy and underwhelming. My wife and I came out of the restaurant feeling bloated. The etouffee was way too heavy on the beef gravy, overwhelming the delicate seafood, the crusted sole was also too heavy for a light delicate fish. The service was the worst we’ve experienced at a high end restaurant. If you are charging $40 to $50 for an entree you have to have decent help. One of the assistants said she was there just helping out the bartender, whom I guess was our server. Well, they really needed a lot more help. We didn’t even entertain ordering a dessert, we just wanted our bill, which took about 30 minutes, so we could forget this dreadful experience. The previous night we went to The Bistro, which was so much better, in every aspect, that it should be number one for fine dining in Cannon Beach. It’s so disappointing when a high end restaurant, such as Castaways, thinks that they no longer have to work and produce a high end product to stay number one. Castaways just tumbled down several spots to about number 10. I’d rather go to Driftwood and pay half the cost and get better service and food! If Castaways continues this downward trend they will be out of business within a year, which is too bad.
Castaways Best CB Restaurant for Dinner
We always eat at Castaways when we're in Cannon Beach. We believe it's the BEST restaurant for dinner in Cannon Beach. Food is always EXCELLENT. Josh is an excellent chef. Staff are always friendly. Reservation a must.
Global Cuisine at its finest!
I don't know how I've lived in Oregon for a few decades and missed out on this place until now! Such a lovely cozy spot for a great meal in Cannon Beach. Castaways’ innovative menu draws inspiration from around the world, with a strong emphasis on seafood prepared with Cajun and Creole influences. The menu changes daily, though a few favorites such as Lobster Bisque garnished with chives and crème fraiche and sea scallops served with a crisp polenta cake and maple rum buttered popcorn sauce, are featured frequently. Don't miss out on the crab fritters. They're incredible! A great spot for a romantic dinner. Their cocktails are works of art too.
Great food and service
We came for lunch and tried the beef brisket sandwich with a great dressing, rolled up lunch tacos and the burrata with beautiful and very flavorful orange tomatoes from the Valley. Great food and great service👍🏻
