Visited for lunch on Friday 3rd March. We were sitting there enjoying our lunch when a staff member started dragging tables and chairs around the area where we were seated. When we pointed out that it was very noisy when we were trying to enjoy a quiet lunch all we got was back chat from the staff member. This was... More

Visited for dinner on Friday 17th February. There has been an increase in meal prices and the meal sizes seemed smaller. We are members of RSL so get a discount with food and drink. Still a great venue and great place for people to enjoy themselves.

I don't usually write negatives, however this dinning experience needs to be told, the restaurant is not cheap, and needs to improve. We dined in Ocean to Plate restaurant last night, we had the pork belly with scallops, the pork belly was cooked like a dim sim, all dry and not at all tasty. The spring rolls were vert good....

Visited for dinner on Tuesday 18th October. We had friends visiting and decided to bring them to the RSL for dinner. Our meals were great and the drinks icy cold at a reasonable price. Our friends were very impressed with the night out.

Visited for dinner on Saturday 8th October with friends. We really enjoyed our meals this time, the service was quick and the meals as ordered. It was busy but they seemed to have enough staff to cater for this, well done RSL Caloundra.

Our family took my father in law out for his birthday recently. We haven't been to the RSL for quite sometime and thought the renovations were lovely. The pull apart Cobb was tasty enough but cold in the middle. Kids meals were ok but it would have been nice to see some salad served with it, not just chips. We... More

Surprised to see that this rated below the surf club as our meal here was quite a bit better. I enjoyed the garlic prawns in a creamy sauce with rice and wilted spinach. Quite creamy and plenty of garlic. Very slow service, a long wait for garlic bread starter and the dessert bar closed before we received our main course... More

Food is over priced and lacks flavour. The kids club cosmic cave was the whole reason we came to visit but I was made to feel like a terrible parent for dropping my child off. If this is on your list of places to visit just cross it off your list and find somewhere else!
