Decent menu, reasonably priced. The first occasion we ate there we enjoyed so much we returned the following night..... oh dear, not a good choice. How a place can be so different on consecutive days is unbelievable. Can't even say the dishes we ordered were good because they didn't even arrive!! We ordered simple main course pasta dishes with garlic... More

We were here tonight in a group of 11 for a 7.30 booking. We ordered after 15 minutes but then had to endure a wait of 1 and a half hours before our meals were brought out. It's worth mentioning that we ordered pastas and risottos and these are fairly quick meals to prepare. At 9.15pm, 10 meals came out,... More

We decided on the Italian which had a very taste tempting Morton Bay Bug and linguini dish as a special. Unfortunately our lovely lunch ended there. When the meal arrived it was cold, all of it. Six mussels, 3 prawns, one poor... More

Dinner was excellent; food tasty, good portions, wine lovely, what more to ask for?! I had the seafood risotto & my partner the Moreton Bay Bug risotto. We both enjoyed our respective meals. One tiny point was the price of the MBB meal at $38 is quite expensive for 5 half bugs, but the quality of cooking almost made up... More

Fantastic food authentic Italian atmosphere and great service, at Rumba on Bulcock Beach. We had a great time and a lot of fun celebrating my son's year 12 graduation with friends.

We are dinner here on Saturday night, my husband and I with our seven year old. Very warm welcome, able to seat us straight away. Children's menu available. A varied cocktail menu, I sampled the Americano, was very good. The waiting staff were very friendly and accomodating. Good was excellent although a little slow to come out. Would recommend.

30 minutes after ordering the waitress came back to us and asked if we were ready to order. Then informed us that the fish I had ordered 30 minutes ago was no longer available. The risotto then chosen was a great disappointment , it was bland gluggy and in need of seasoning.

This restaurant is not on Trip Advisor but is located beneath the Rhumba Resort in Caloundra. Can you pls set it up as a restaurant in its own right so I can write a review.
Thanks, Kitty
