Went for a lunch with a friend and 3 kids! Couldn't fault it! Lovely food, good value for money, service v good too! The kids liked it too as there was lots of space to play with their loom bands while we had a vino! Quite busy but didn't have to wait long! Would def recommend it!

Friendly service but quality of both food and drink was really very poor. Food was slow to arrive despite not being at all busy. When it arrived it was small for the cost & the quality was awful. (How can you get a cheese & ham toastie wrong??.... by using very cheap ham!) Pathetic tiny pile of salad leaves (that... More

The good things are that there are many tables, a lovely outside seating area, and the place is clean and modern throughout. Only criticism of the facilities is no aircon, so quite stuffy on mild to hot days. Food is ok but far too expensive for the 'average' equality and portion size you get - £5 for a couple of... More

New staff required....... even if they are not too busy they try and rush you, if you take your time chatting and drinking your coffee, they keep pestering you to purchase another drink.... they just want you to pay for your drink - guzzle and leave........ not a relaxing experience - too much competition on Mapperley Top - so you...

The service is excellent. The prices are very reasonable. The staff are very friendly and attentive. They absolutely adore our daughter and go out of their way... More

I met a friend here for lunch in October, I had never been before and not read any reviews about it. The service was quite slow I thought but as we were not in any hurry it did not matter to us. On the next table was a pregnant Mum with her small child who was amazingly well behaved, they... More

A rare meal out with my partner and baby. I ordered a steak ciabatta, they asked how I wanted it. Rare, please. After an unduly long wait, they eventually brought our food out once our drinks were finished. My steak was still frozen and completely raw. When I complained, a very rude manager suggested that it was my fault as... More

I have been here several times now and each time I leave undecided if I like the place or not. I am a believer of supporting your local shops so keep giving them another chance. They definitely do not like children, that is blatantly obvious to the point where it's uncomfortable. This feeling is made worse by one owner (more... More

First visit to Capers for a Sunday breakfast with my wife and two children. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. We were made to feel like family, there were also lots of books for the children to read which kept them occupied! I wanted to write a review after reading some of the other... More
