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.

During a recent 6 night stay at Ocean View Resort we dined 3 nights here. We loved the atmosphere which was enhanced by live music and friendly helpful staff.The printed wine list did not match availability which was disappointing and alternatives limited.The menu is small but on each occasion we were happy with our choices. I enjoyed the tapas selection... More

Had a quick but hearty breakfast and lots of coffee. Service was fast and friendly. Food was hot and plenty of it especially the bacon and eggs, the eggs benedict was rich and yum would have benefitted from some spinach. Waitress accommodated the kids and made sure their meal was something they would eat.

We love it here but do at times miss the Sydney night life. we've discovered that there's not a lot going on in Caloundra on a Saturday night, so this little restaurant/bar is a bit... More

Forty-five 51 is alive. Cool food, cool music, cool atmosphere - and noone trying too hard. Weekday nights used to be a real snooze, but Caloundra has a new buzz on Tuesdays, with talented musicians, nicely priced munchies and a family friendly surf coast feeling at 4551. If you've been wondering where to go for quality live music on the... More
