Service is good and friendly. It can be a bit noisey from passing traffic. Is very handy to the beach and there is a choice of eateries nearby.

Came here for an ice cream while we walk. The variety was amazing and staff were friendly and helpful. Looks like a great place to seat and have dinner while you have beautiful views.

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.
