Burbank - Downtown


This hilltop restaurant features a fire pit offering cocktails and Californian cuisine amid scenic views of Greater Los Angeles.

Restaurant outdoor patio overlooking the greater LA area
Castaway interior with view of greater LA area


Castaway in Burbank is just as famous for its spectacular views as it is for its spectacular food. The outdoor patio offers a panoramic bird's eye perspective of the greater LA area from its impressive hilltop perch, and there are multiple levels of seating for guests to enjoy a peek at the city below. There’s also an expansive yet cozy outdoor courtyard space for those who aren't a fan of heights.

This eatery features a selection of seasonally-inspired cuisines including fresh cuts of meat and a generous raw bar. Castaway is also well-known for its signature “build-it-yourself” charcuterie boards and hand-crafted cocktails. It’s an ideal destination for couples to enjoy a romantic date al fresco, or to share a family meal and create fond memories.

Although the views are fabulous any hour of the day or night, the best time to visit would be at sunset when the colors of the Southern California sky turn vibrant hues of pink and orange, and the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles city life below seems to slow.

How to Get There

  • Take the Antelope Valley or Ventura County Line to the Burbank-Downtown Station
  • Take Rideshare 3.1 miles, approx; 10 minutes
