Took the English visitors to the RSL for dinner. The RSL concept was difficult for them to understand. They are also surprised at the cost of food here compared to England. Had the roast dinner special, waited a while but there was a reasonable amounts...More

The kids pizza was okay, but the bacon amd bocconcini penne were hard to send down. The pasta was floating on a watery sauce that tasted like it had three tablespoons of sugar in it. Pasta should be al dente, instead it was quite soft...More

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.
