“Best in Rotorua”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is our local in Rotorua. The staff are wonderful ad Liz & Caroline deserve a special mention for their unwavering cheerfulness & organisation
The food is great esp the cabinet food which changes often. Coffee is excellent too and the range of magazines also a drawcard. We suggest all our overseas guests come here
Cheers Liz & Mike, Lake Tarawera.

“Good food, good service”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We went for dinner, the mains were very good and the puddings delicious. I have also gone quite often for lunch, when I get the salads which are delicious. The service is friendly and helpful.

“Average”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

Went for breakfast with group of 11 after the Rotorua marathon.
They managed to fit us in.
Service was slow, cabinet looked impressive. However wasn't overly impressed with the meals.

I had pancakes which weren't warm and were dry at the edges. My friend had to send her omelette back as it was underdone.

From the reviews I was expecting a lot better but it was very busy and maybe if not so busy would have better service and quality of food.

Maybe we were just unlucky.

“Great as always”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a late lunch at Capers - what a variety of choice. Quality of food and great service means Capers is always on our list of places to eat when in Rotorua.

“What a FIND! So very SPECIAL!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Ok I know locals have written great reviews about Capers but when an out of towner makes a reservation you don’t expect all of you to turn up! Capers is certainly popular!

The food is great with an excellent menu; the service is slick and enthusiastic and the atmosphere is guests truly enjoying what was on offer.

BUT when it was let slip when booking that this was our wedding anniversary and we were having a meal before going to a show you can imagine our absolute delight to be given a very special wedding anniversary dessert that had been specially decorated for us. How the chef managed the creation on such a busy night we will never know. Check out the attached image.

So many thanks Capers – you made our special night extra SPECIAL!
