I'm rating my dinner as 3.5. I ordered a couple of corn on the cob. First they told us there was only one, then none and as we had already paid we had to select other things. That said, the waitress handled it beautifully and with good humour and the meals themselves were very good. Loved the pork chop and... More

Went there for lunch then dinner for a bday. Initially I was a little annoyed with the food when we had the prawns (500grams and tasteless) although the burger platter (shared both with partner) were really good. At night we had the pizza (amazing) and steak (award winning and top notch). Glad we went back as I think we might... More

Came here for breakfast and got the fritters, very very dry and had a hair in my food. Definitely not worth the money. My friends got bacon and eggs which was over priced and average. The coffee was nice though.

Popped in for dinner tonight. The place was absolutely empty, so you may have expected a better welcome and service! No chance! Food was below average, really small portions, cold and totally overpriced!! Much better places at Airlie - Sidewalk Cafe as a starter for ten! Practically next door, wins hands down!

we waited ages to be seated, waited ages for our food and to get our drinks. the cocktail I received was lovely (but they ran out of tomato juice so the dash was on to find some). my daughters meal of pasta was watery and bland, my spring rolls were over cooked and dipping sauce was like molasses and my...

I had Capers recommended to me by two different groups of friends. So it was the first stop when we arrived in Airlie. We lucked out when we went here. We managed to arrive at 2 for 1 pizza time. Great value on the food. Had we not gotten this food deal it would have been a little expensive but... More

This food is absolutely AMAZING I cannot rate it enough and the drinks are just delicious. The only thing that was a bit down was a waitress that was nothing but rude to myself and friends Pick up a smile it goes a long way :)

The title of my review says it all, but the floor manager Brad was the show stopper. Great setting, great food, and the service by him was SOOOOOOOO great. You have to try the tomahawke steak. Just the presentation alone will make your jaw hit the floor. Capers and Brad, you are the BEST.
