“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

We ate here as it was conveniently located across the road from our accommodation and came highly recommended by the manager. It was my birthday weekend and I wanted to eat somewhere special. I had fish and vegetables and my husband had a delicious pasta dish which was customized for our vegetarian diet. It was delicious and the portions were generous. The staff were accommodating, efficient, and prompt. We would definitely eat here again next time we are in the area.

“Great food & glad Clifton Capers is back to it's great standard!”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Hadn't been to Clifton Capers for a while as previous owners had let the standards slip. However as we were local & hungry decided to visit for a meal recently & we were delighted! The new owners are a family business & very helpful & friendly, the ambience is great & it's nice to sit outside with a glass on wine on the verandah. All in all a great night out & the food was fantastic. Chilli squid, Bruschetta, Barrumundi & Sirloin were had & I can't wait to go back. They also have a take away pizza menu. Well done Clifton Capers!!!

“Clifton Capers is back”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

A couple of weeks ago my partner and I decided to give Clifton Capers a second chance. When we visited the restaurant shortly after the new owners took over we weren't that impressed. However time went on and after several attempts to get a nice meal in the city of Cairns which wasn't that easy, we gave Clifton Capers a second chance and never looked back. The service has improved 100%. The meals are very tasty and with a twist. This local restaurant should be considered when trying to avoid the busier areas such as Palm Cove or Trinity Beach. With a new menu designed for the warmer climate we would like to thank the team of Clifton Capers to make our stay so special. We eat out a lot and don't mind a change of management which in some cases is for the better anyhow. This local managed restaurant needed some more time to get it right. Mission accomplished and well done. We will be back.......

“Dining on the Verandah”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

This is a family run Restaurant. The greeting you receive when you arrive is though you are part of the family. Our first visit didn't go great .one of the meals we ordered they ran out off. Reordered another meal . After being there for 2hrs and our meals still hadn't been started we decided to leave. They apologised and gave us a voucher for 1 meal. So never to give up we went again 6 weeks later. We shared the crocodile and passion fruit spring rolls. Very tasty. Mains chilli bug and garlic prawns on paw paw salad and paella. The Paella was not cooked in a paella pan and was served in a bowl it was like a Risotto it just didn't have that Spanish flavour. The Bugs and Prawns that came with these dishes were to die for. Desserts are priced at $10.Yes we will return but have learnt to order promptly as when they get busy things can fall apart.
