Tapas

We had lunch there and it was very quiet. Place is really set up as a bar so I would not go just to eat, however, the tapas we had was okay (7/10) and we enjoyed our food and drink(s) ;)

We recently visited Forty Five 51 whilst on a trip over from the UK. We thought that the live music was a great touch and the evening's musician, Kimbal, was amazing. We found out there were new owners and we have to say that they were so welcoming. The bar staff, especially Lindsay, were so friendly and even made my... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The tapas menu was great. Loved the goats cheese balls and the calamari with chorizo. The service was a little slow and had run out of a few menu items and wines but I believe there are new owners so prepared to cut them some slack. Nice atmosphere and some good music being played. Very... More

Ever wondered what happens to those restaurant managers with no prior experience. Forty-five 51 can tell you. The manager who took our order advised he had recently taken over , n despite our patience - it showed. Nothing like watching the manager suck down a beer and eat dinner while we waited for our order and drinks. He was unaware... More

When ever I see or go into 45 51 it is always empty. By 8.30pm you would think it is the early hours of the morning and the staff are not keen to serve after that time. I,m amazed the place is still open. Not surprised though Bulcock st is like a ghost town of an evening. All these apartments... More

A few friends and I were struggling to find a good place to eat in Caloundra. So we made a booking at forty five 51 and they did not disappoint! Food was great, staff were extremely friendly and drinks were awesome too! Haven't been back since but will defiantly consider it next time in in Caloundra!

Bar was near our hotel so met with friends. $10 "cocktail of the night" special which the girls enjoyed and could have stayed for more. Staff very friendly. Didn't eat but menu looked good. Would try again.
