I had a business lunch here and will definitely return. It was a great place to talk and eat. The food was great and the service attentive but not intrusive.

The staff were extremely attentive and friendly, had tapas there previously and was not impressed, we desided to give it another chance. Kim the new head chef was amazing. Relaxing music and amazing food and service to boot. The pork was beautiful with a little bite in the sauce, melted in our mouths. Will definitely be bringing around next time.... More

Took a stroll down to Bulcock Beach looking for a quiet spot to enjoy a cool drink and something to eat on a balmy Sunday afternoon/evening. Found some spots but these were too noisy and crowded for our liking. So strolled a bit further and found Fortyfive 51. Just perfect. Live music, not too loud, that enabled us to enjoy... More

The service is absolute crap, the staff treated our party like we were a disease. Do not come here unless you want to be treated like less than dirt. Meals were cancelled, took forever to come out.

Jimmi B, Manager at Forty five 51, responded to this review

Hi Mark. We at Forty Five 51 are disappointed that your experience at our venue last night was not to your satisfaction especially as we pride ourselves in customer service and in no way do we ever treat our customers in the way described and this is proved from the many reviews you will see on Trip Advisor. There is... More

We went here with friends for after dinner drinks. We could hear the live music as we walked back from dinner to our hotel so we decided to go in to listen to more. Surprised to see they had live music on most nights so went there on both Friday + Saturday night. We really liked the singer on Friday... More

Often typified as a 'poor cousin' to Noosa and the Sunshine Coast, Caloundra can boast a wonderful, petite restaurant, with style, panache and mouth watering menu selection. Full credit to Jimmi and his chef (sorry I didn't esquire on your name), and especially Maddi, who made our evening a thorough delight, and diligently looked after our grandchildren and ourselves, with...
