Rather noisy as a birthday party going on. Our waitress did not have much idea about things on the menu. Would not recommend as a good dining experience.

I always enjoy my meal at the Capricornian but the slow and underwhelming bar and table service drives me made.

Decided to go for dinner with my parents. Was not disappointed, beautiful meals, desserts, service + presentation. And the prices were fairly tame for the calibre of restaurant.

Went to this place for a business dinner and was impressed with the food, service was friendly and good, just needed a little prompting occasionally with drinks but otherwise a good night.

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Queensland. I have eaten here often and never disappointed.

Dinner at this Restaurant was dictated by where we were staying. It is pleasant, clean, spacious and "flash". The food was mostly good.

Had a nice dinner with 2 colleagues. Pork ribs were very nice and the steak rated well too. A well frequented place, seems to be one of the go to joints in town for a fine dining experience. Good wine list. Good wait staff.
