Certainly of an evening this venue has more atmosphere. Dined here for a group lunch and must comment that it was good but not great. The pricing was reasonable, the service fine despite us having to ask for water and ask to order. They were not busy at all at the time we ordered. The coffees are really average. I would go back as I believe everyone deserves a second chance. Dined less than 2 weeks ago on a week day.

The food here is always delicious - from the Tapas to burgers and meals. The staff are really friendly. They have a massive choice of beers and cocktails.

Had a nice atmosphere and great food. With this venue being close to OVR we could enjoy a few drinks and listen to some good music before heading back to our room.

Holidays again and that means a trip back to my favourite restaurant in Caloundra. They have a new bartender and he is great. Made the best Berry Bliss I have ever had. A bit of a change to my last visit, they now do full table service. The lovely waitress new the menu quite well and pointed out some dessert options that I had missed. OMG the caramel cheesecake in a martini glass is to die for! As usual they had live music and I was lucky to get a table, it seems that the secret is out and I'll be booking ahead next time.

Went on a Sunday..group,of six. Will,start with positives..food was good, live music enjoyable. Was quite busy and most people seemed to be enjoying themselves. Drinks were reasonably priced. Now for negative.....get more staff!!! One barman doing all drinks and food orders was ridiculous. Man worked efficiently but too much time spent at bar instead of at table. No one to greet guests, or take orders. It seemed like a diy place. As a first time visit there no real explanation as to how things worked. One person cooking all those orders and one person delivering orders and cleaning up. Its peak holiday time here so they needed more staff. Such a shame as a little more of the above would make a difference.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review our venue. I am glad that you enjoyed the food and live music. Unfortunately we were caught in a perfect storm that night, literally. The storm that hit the coast that night caused two of our staff to cancel their shifts at the last minute and we had a third that was unwell and went home early. We usually would have had double the staff for a busy night like that and the guys that were there did the best they could under the circumstances. Thank you very much for your patience and I hope you will come back again when we have a full compliment on the floor.
