THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Castle Hill Cafe Restaurant Review

: No castle on a hill, this artsy bungalow filled with a playful array of multicolored Oaxacan animal woodcarvings offers equally fanciful fusion cuisine. The menu includes a collection of creative and complex items, some mainstays and some seasonal. The eclectic cooking style offers a multitude of robust flavors on each busy-looking, festively garnished plate. We've enjoyed grilled beef tenderloin, accompanied not only by a classic bordelaise sauce but also an onion relish, thyme pesto, and foie gras butter. Adventurous eaters will also go for the moist Moroccan barbecue salmon with jicama-napa cabbage slaw. Roasted duck enchiladas with a pasilla-blackberry sauce is just one dish of many that we feel combines all the flavors of the Southwest. Castle Hill offers the best wines available at value pricing in various wine regions.
