Menu selection was good and quite varied. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful in making meal selection. Food came very well prep[ared and was to be savored. I had the fruit de mare on marinara.

This place is our regular since Rick left TBP "Essence". As usual, great food and wine at about half the cost. Highly recommended.

A nice place to eat after a hard day in the spring water pools. The steak was good and the portions are large. There is a good selection of wine. Staff take great pride in their restuarant.

After reading some of the reviews about the new Capri, I was concerned. I really liked the old Capri, and I didn't want to be disappointed. Luckily, I wasn't. The Long Island Ice Tea wasn't as good as I remembered, but it was good. We had two dinners and a breakfast. I never ate breakfast at the old Capri so... More

So glad you enjoyed the happy with the food, prices, service and atmosphere. The Old Capri was a classic restaurant in DHS, and we don't try to be the Old Capri, we try to be a fine and accommodating restaurant at Miracle Springs while carrying on the name. We hope you come back soon! Take care, Reggie B More

Took 3 guests and myself to Capri last night. I made reservations beforehand. Their char-broiled beef is best, especially for the price. The Filet Mignon got high marks as did my Rib Eye! Very flavorful, and with some cocktails and a desert, got out for under $105! Pretty amazing! I will go back since the menu is varied enough for... More

We've been coming to DHS for 20+ years. In that time time we mostly stayed and ate at Two Bunch Palms. Recently, TBP has gone down hill in our eyes. The Capri restaurant offers similar fare with less pretence at two-thirds the price. The steaks are excellent, as is the rack of lamb. The service, although a little rough around... More

We had fairly low expectations going here, but went as we were staying at the hotel. The restaurant is run by a separate entity from the hotel and the host hasn't eaten there! No one on staff had eaten there, seems like poor marketing to me or maybe not. We ordered carefully figuring that you could order items that couldn't... More

Thanks for the review. My family owns the hotel and the Capri Restaurant. I'm sorry we had un-ripe tomatoes that day because we do have great food. Hope you get the chance to try us out again. Take care, Reggie B More

Maybe I'm just from the Bay Area where everything is amazing. But I expect better food from California. This is on par with what I'd find back in Indiana, where I'm from. The blue cheese dressing was good. But the steak, which they are known for, was disappointing. Pasta sauce was terrible. But I'm Italian, so it might be ok... More
