I thought something must be up when there was NO answer (at any time of the day) to their listed telephone number when I tried to ring! Having read the VERY poor reviews about this place, I was not hopeful that we would end up eating there - so we had a lovely Plan B in mind (The Caloundra Powerboat... More

The food tasted like leftovers. The sea food was watery. The roast was tough. We were the 1st in that night and there was half a tray of apple crumble gone same with the pavlova. The pavlova if that was what you could call it was very thin and flat very ordinary. My husband had an oyster and had to... More

We went there for dinner and we were not impressed. The prawns were poor quality, chips were cold and soggy, potato bake was gluggy and the roast was dry. Even the soft serve machine produced below average ice cream. Won't be going back.

Centrepoint recieved a $17 000 fine for food safety violations. Buffet Haus reopened with the exact same menu.... (same owners???) but that isn't the main problem. The food was average (expected) again not the biggest issue. The problem was the lack of food. The family decided to support locals and arrived arround 6:30 pm on a Saturday night. Scouted the...

Went there for lunch with my wife and found the restaurant and food very bland. By the look of it, there were a lot of retirees who go for the cheap pricing. I wouldn't bother going back as there's a lot more around beautiful Caloundra. This isn't one of them that's for sure.

Went with my family because I love buffets. This one wasn't very good though. Staff very friendly and helpful but food not good really. Small selection and you have to take the plastic lids off to see what's under every lid. Very low quality food with lots of fat and not much taste but $15pp for lunch was a good... More

I am not a great lover of smorgasbords. The food tends to have been cooked and just waiting to be put out. This is an unfortunate trait with most smorgasbords but I don't know how you can overcome that because of this style of restaurant. Their prawns and mussells however are beautiful. Will probably go back again sometime in the... More
