We had my sister in law and neice visiting and decided to go to the Caper. We started with the Pomegranite Flip Martinis which are fantastic. For appetizers we had the Calamari (Best in the world) and the Pork Belly tacos which are delicious. For dinner we had a very nice 2004 Castelgiocondo Brunello di Montalcino which had aged perfectly.... More

It was my mother in law's 70th birthday. She loves the Caper so we made a last minute reservation for 8 people. They graciously accommodated me. We arrived early and enjoyed very reasonably priced cocktails in their intimate Lounge. Our table was ready. Decor is lovely with interesting Art. We ordered off the fixed price menu which is available monday... More

We were eight in our party and were seated in the small "private" room at the rear of the restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service too. It was a great location for the group as we could actually talk without distractions.

When asked what our favorite Punta Gorda restaurant is, we have always said The Perfect Caper. However, our visit there last week was somewhat disappointing. The service, as usual, was superb. We ordered from the fixed price menu. My appetizer, the lightly fried calamari with Asian sauce was good but not unique. This dish seems to be at many restaurants... More

This may be the best secret for dining in the Punta Gorda area. If you enjoy great calamarie this is the best I have ever had, PERIOD. I have been to some of the great resturaunts in the USA with my job, and this is right up there. Service, food, surroundings make this the perfect place to get a perfect... More

Our Family had a wonderful meal experience here last night. We started with the special Lobster Tacos which were amazing and very creative. There was so much lobster meat that it was spilling from the taco shell onto the plate. With this we had a bottle of 2010 Coelho Chardonnay which was wonderful. Later we had a 2006 Cheval des...

We always dine at Perfect Caper any time we are in Punta Gorda. The menu is creative yet comforting, offering favorite selections done with a bit of a twist. The Calamari with its sweet/spicy chili sauce is great if you like a little heat, and the Warm Goat Cheese is complimented with roasted pepper and kalamata olive. The menu does... More

What a treat to have a fabulous restaurant in Punta Gorda, Florida. The ambiance is lovely and the food beyond compare - that goes for anywhere in the US. Have been there many times and never disappointed. Inventive dishes without being fussy and something for everyone. A real treat because of the abysmal assortment of other restaurants in this area.... More
