We did takeaway: $48 for a family pack. 4x Fish Chips Salad 1.5L Drink The quantity of food could probably feed more like 6 people. Chips were good and cooked perfectly. The fish (we requested crumbed) is cut and cooked in strips. It was so overcooked that you could not taste the flavour of the fish and biting into it... More

Don't be fooled by the 'Cafe & Kiosk' name! We came here for dinner on the recommendation of a friend who is a local and knows the owner/chef (apparently used to run a swanky restaurant in Sydney but moved to Caloundra for a lifestyle change). I had the fish of the day (swordfish- which was cooked to absolute perfection) on... More

Food was excellent. Snapper and chips were great and calamari was top notch. Only problem was food took a bit of a while. Told 10-15 and took half an hour...

When you want to dine out and get the best fish and chips you can this is the place. High quality top end, the best chips (the hand cut are the ones) great service. It will cost more than the fish and chip shop, but it's worth the price. Assault meals are around $20-$22 the is a kids deal with... More

From the warm welcome to the parting friendly banter you can not have a great time. Food, service and view are all 10 out of 10

New Years day we walked past this restaurant a few times before settling on it. Lots of people had been waiting out front for takeaway fish and chips which operates as a separate shop next to the restaurant. This queue was what attracted us to dine in. They had a 10% surcharge as it was a public holiday but this... More

We own a holiday unit at Kings Beach and come up to Caloundra often for getaways from Brisbane. I really loved going to the Sand Bar as it used to have great meals and a few drinks as it has a great location right on the beach. I don't know if they have changed management, but we were very disappointed... More
