We were here for an evening special family event & it was great. I loved that it was a large open comfortable space, we could easily socialise & move around. We also came back for a breakfast. Good on all accounts. On the esplanade it's also a good meeting place, easy to find.

Made a booking, greeted by friendly staff. Disastrous occurred when ordering second round of drinks. No table service! You are your own waiter! Would you like a tray, yes please. Some experience required here, especially if the drinks are not balanced right. No matter.. yes split drinks all over my white dress!! I then became wet and miserable.. Sat at... More

As a local I have been to Capers many times and have to say that when we have a social gathering I always suggest somewhere other than Capers now. The menu is getting a bit old and there are not a lot of things that entice. The last time I went I thought I would get a burger. It matched... More

Have been here for dinner a couple of times now thinking it may have been a one off, but each time Have been very disappointed... very overpriced for the quality of food you get and lack of service. Lovely spot, but Low quality food - would not recommend...

Honestly and simply just excellent! On a visit to airlie beach with my dad.. after a great day on the barrier reef was ended with such a good feed! The beer on tap is good! I tried one of the specials on the board and it was bloody good food! Definitely worth checking out.

It's a typical Aussie hotel; you order your beer and food at the counter; sit down and get served later. Not for drinks though. Great beer selection; craft beers like James Squire & Little Creatures. I ordered the snapper for food; loved it!

Capers is a great alround spot. Lovey food, drinks and location. They also make a great special coffee and the cakes are yummy.
