The service is absolute crap, the staff treated our party like we were a disease. Do not come here unless you want to be treated like less than dirt. Meals were cancelled, took forever to come out.

Hi Mark. We at Forty Five 51 are disappointed that your experience at our venue last night was not to your satisfaction especially as we pride ourselves in customer service and in no way do we ever treat our customers in the way described and this is proved from the many reviews you will see on Trip Advisor. There is... More

We went here with friends for after dinner drinks. We could hear the live music as we walked back from dinner to our hotel so we decided to go in to listen to more. Surprised to see they had live music on most nights so went there on both Friday + Saturday night. We really liked the singer on Friday... More

Often typified as a 'poor cousin' to Noosa and the Sunshine Coast, Caloundra can boast a wonderful, petite restaurant, with style, panache and mouth watering menu selection. Full credit to Jimmi and his chef (sorry I didn't esquire on your name), and especially Maddi, who made our evening a thorough delight, and diligently looked after our grandchildren and ourselves, with...

Visited here on an impulse with two young kids to have some tapas and drinks on a Saturday night. It was booked out but they offered us their lounge area. Made our kids very welcome and paid special attention to them. Food was exceptional, well priced and quality live music capped a great night.

We dined at this restaurant by fluke! Drove past and thought we would pull up and have a meal. So glad we did. Amazing food, to die for cocktails, great atmosphere and impeccable service. Keep up the good work guys!

Tasteful Live music too....truly setting a scene in Caloundra that is relaxing yet lively for all. Artistically presented tapas or beautifully presented and bountiful mains...the choice was tough. I Eat out on the coast a lot and the tapas here is unmatched. Saturday night was packed and the two musos, Caroline Hammond and Angela were very polished....reminiscent of The Indigo... More

We dined at Forty five 51 and were very impressed. The restaurant has a welcoming and friendly atmosphere with the bonus of live music. We ordered a variety of food from the tapas menu to share between 3 adults and two children, and it was just right. My personal favourites were the scotch fillet and the salmon. But the mushrooms...
