We didn't stay for food, despite being hungry, as the singer was so loud. In fact, one could still hear him by the time we'd turned on to the boardwalk. Ridiculously loud. How could anyone eat during that noise, and I pity the people in nearby units. This was Tuesday last.

I visited Caloundra over the Easter weekend and our hotel had no food service available. I liked the look of this place and decided to have dinner there. Despite them hosting a 50th birthday that night, the staff were really friendly and helpful. The waitress brought us a bottle of water and a menu as soon as we sat down... More

Was in Caloundra for work and stayed nearby. Unfortuantely that day the hotel restaurant closed early for lunch so walked around the corner and came across a mostly empty bar. It was nice looking, played decent music that appealed to me. I really just wanted a steak sandwhich but my first impression of the place was ok this place might... More

I had a entertainment book voucher to use here, but I didn't see the place open during my 4 day stay. Perhaps it opens late in the evening?? Bit disappointing.

A friend and I were in the mood for something tasty, a few drinks and good live music. All boxes were ticked here. We both chose the $25 3 tapas option. Delicious! Then we settled into the comfy sofas to listen to great music by Big Things.
