This was recommended to us as the best restaurant in Emerald and the food did not disappoint. Enormous oysters three ways followed by lamb rack and pork ribs. All amazing. The atmosphere is modern and relaxed. Great value too. The only downside was that we were bitten by mosquitoes as we had dinner and made a quick exit because of... More

The Capricornia was a fantastic venue for Christmas lunch. There was a great variety of food and the beverages were cold! I could not fault the staff they were so friendly and attentive. Climate wise - took me a little while to cool down. It was a bloody hot day!

The Capricornian has a lovely atmosphere and the food is also good. They are big servings but beautifully presented. The staff are friendly. The wine list is ok. Definitely going again

Nice environment with different areas to eat at. The music was too loud for an easy conversation across a large round table. Steak cooked to order nicely and accompanied by good sides. Service was polite and helpful but a little clunky at times.

Travelling in regional and country Australia, I am always conscious that I cannot always expect the same level of service or quality of food as I could expect in Sydney or Melbourne. Often I think these places make up for the simpler approach to food with good local produce, and friendliness and warmth. But when a place positions itself as... More

Dear Sir Your lengthy posting is void of fact and appears as a calculated misrepresentation. You did not wait 30 minutes for your meal as our CCTV records show. You entered the premises at 7:58pm, your order was taken at 8:09pm and you paid by credit card and left at 8:47pm. You sat alone and did not communicate or seek... More

Being away for work by yourself makes it hard to enjoy dinner alone. The service was very good and the food delicious. The ribs fell off the bone and the desert was big as well. It was worth the visit and great value for money.

Simply the very best dining in Emerald. Great service. Fully licensed with indoor and outdoor areas. Incredible menu and food always cooked to perfection with the freshest ingredients. The huge flame grilled rib eye on the bone with roast veg is a must and the seafood is always of the highest quality. The desserts are also a sweet tooths' heaven.... More
