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

We visited this buffet 3 times during our holiday in the area. They were very helpful in pointing out which items were gluten free and even gave me a small discount as I could not eat everything. Each time we visited it was lunchtime. We noticed that due to low numbers of diners nothing was replenished so best to get... More

Food was not what we were expecting, staff were pleasant but this is a budget restaurant, the food reflected this... if your looking for a quick lunch at a budget price this is it...we were looking for a bit more up market and the website does suggest more...
