“Very slow service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Slow service and the food wasn't that great when it did arrive. Expensive for what it was. Probably wouldn't eat there again.

“Top quality fish & chips”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Let's get it out of the way now - this is the best fish & chips in Caloundra. Fullstop.

It's certainly not the cheapest either. I was a bit surprised when I saw how much teh standard fare is. But I forgave the price shock when I ate the food - it is seriously good!!

The beer-battered chips are just awesome. Pay the bit extra and get these!! The fish (NZ cod when I ordered - they always tell you what it is) was panko-crumbed, nice & crunchy on the outside, and no hints of greasiness. My wife had a piece of Australian barramundi, and gave it a double thumbs up.

For $40, we (husband, wife, teenage daughter, & 11yo daughter) walked away with very full tummies and had some leftovers. Eat it across the road at the picnic tables overlooking Bulcock Beach and Pumicestone Passage, million dollar views...!!

“Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Went to this restaurant on a couple of occasions. The staff were so friendly and courteous and nothing was a trouble to them. Good selection on the menu, and the food was wonderful and fresh. Highly recommend this for a meal

“Great food great position”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

Really nice restaurant great food big serves. Thoroughly recommend the bruschetta. Staff are really friendly and service is prompt. Cocktails are fantastic.

The restaurant over looks Bulcock Beach and the promenade so great for pat swim/early morning walk and good for people watching.

Ate dinner, breakfast and a lunch here. The prices are average for water facing Caloundra restaurants. One of the nicest coffees in Caloundra.
