We ate at Moos for dinner. We ordered Garlic Ciabatta to start. It arrived quickly and was a perfect accompaniment to our Sauv Blanc. I ordered grilled Moreton Bay Bugs on risotto with garlic cream sauce for a main. It arrived with 5 bug tails and on a bed of aromatic lemon risotto. The risotto was creamy and firm with... More

Thought we'd try Caloundra for some Italian and discovered this little gem. Owned and operated by a true Italian, and the food shows it! Next best thing to Maroochydore's "Cala Luna" for authentic Italian.

My husband and I went there for lunch today, using a 2 for 1 voucher on a shopper docket. Quite often if using one of these vouchers, you do not receive the same service and attention as a full paying diner.....Not the case here!! Great service, nothing missed, excellent meal, great views....I have to say we will definitely be returning... More

I have dined at this location on may occasions and overall as stated in my title, everything is just fantastic. The size of the meals, the taste, the prices, the friendly service and the view of Bulcock Beach and the shipping lane, provide an ambience that is unusual and most pleasant.

I have been to this restaurant a number of times, sometimes by myself or with my partner. Location is lovely, right opposite the main beach, and the food is nice. Good service too. I would recommend it to others.

Waterfront dining. Great views. I had been to this cafe a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so thought I would go back. The menu hadn't changed much but just seemed a little lack luster. The waitress was friendly but not over so. We had a late lunch so there was only ourselves and two other tables. The milkshake... More

We went here for lunch as I had a coupon Buy one meal get a second free. Staff were happy, friendly and the service was fantastic. Meals were absolutely delicious. We were made to feel very welcome ( this is not always the case at some places when you produce a specials voucher ). We will definitely be return customers.

We have been to lunch a few times at La Dolce Vita and have thoroughly enjoyed the meal and service. The pasta meals and salads are generous in size and very tasty. The view is superb overlooking Bullcock Beach. Casual dining, friendly atmosphere and of course we will be going again.

Went to this cafe a few weeks ago and was not very impressed. The young girl that served us was not very friendly and it seemed everything was too hard. I would not recommend this place to my friends. The food was reasonable but the coffees were cold.

A restaurant that has a lovely setting over looking Bullock Beach . The homemade pasta I had was the best and took me back to our trip to Italy. Other two guests enjoyed their meals also. Bit expensive I thought meaning we did not have the dessert. We went around 5pm when all and I mean all the birds had... More
