My Family had been dining here for many many years and thought we would re-visit after a few months. Food standard has sadly dropped to the point where we doubt whether we will return. Just not worth it. Overpriced for what we got and chips were stale. Despite sending the main back once still came back little better. Couldn't be bothered returning again. Service Staff are very pleasant but the Chef needs to be sorted. If they charge top prices then have to deliver top quality and not stale food.
Pity it couldn't go back to the good old days.

You would think a tavern in a beautiful part of the world with such a beautiful view while you eat would provide edible food. This is sadly not the case.
We went on a Saturday in peak season and there was probably about 10 groups eating. We came to Caloundra 10 years ago and you could not get into the door.
When we sat down and received our meals it was obvious why. The home brand frozen food you can buy at the supermarket would have more flavor. This is just not good enough. You would think the owners would work out that if you make good food at the right price you can not loose.
And to top it all the staff just looked run down and not interested in helping you.

My husband and I had the seafood platter for 2 (advertised as one of their specialties). The platter was reasonably priced at $60 and had batter piece of fish each, 4 salt n pepper squid pieces, 2 oysters each, 4 prawns each and half crab each plus chips n salad. All was pretty good except the crab - neither of us liked or finished it, after tasting it pushed it aside - watery, tasteless and stringy, obviously frozen. They would have been better off leaving it off as we left disappointed because of it.

Good kids play room, service good, outlook good. Have been before and had good meals - just skip the frozen crab please.
