We love their lunch specials. Barra, chips and salad for $14 or swap the barra for battered flake $12. Cheaper than the fish shop! View of the water and decent coffee.

Had lunch here and was very pleased by the service. The food was also fantastic with the cooking featuring a slight Portuguese twist to it. Would highly recommend if you're in the area.

Taken here by friends who live locally. We all absolutely enjoyed our dinner. Friendly staff. Good service. It's BYO which is a bonus. Fair prices for generous serves. Wish we had the time to return on this trip. Have to wait till next year's holiday.

Karma waters breakfast will please most people. It's located at the northern end of the strip so doesn't feel as jam packed as further towards the surf club end. We dine here each time we get to Mooloolaba (3 to 4 times per year) and it never disappoints.

The Barramundi with coconut kills the taste of the fish. It is like eating a coconut, and only that! The pork belly is well done but very expensive! Drinks are ok!
