A nice surprise

This is the first we have dinner here with no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Lovely setting, professional service and great food. The meals are both interesting and delicious. Would definitely return and will soon!

This is the nicest place to eat in Emerald, I think. We went there for my daughter's 18th birthday dinner and were not disappointed. Service is pleasant but not outstanding. Luckily, all is forgiven for the great food.

I dined alone whilst travelling on business. Service was very attentive, food arrived a bit quick to have been made fresh. I had the homemade pasta and meatballs. the pasta was enjoyable, but the meatballs were hard as rocks and were obviously not made freshly that evening. I tried two different white wines which I drink regularly, both had that... More

This was our first visit, definitely not our last. The waitress was friendly and efficient. The double baked soufflé entree was delicious. The steaks were perfectly cooked and great value for money. The Bombe Alaska earl grey tea dessert was divine. Best restaurant in Emerald.

This restaurant was recommended to be the classiest in town. Very disappointed. No dress code. Service lousy. The Entree and desert we had were good, however the main meal let it down. Steak was tough. Would not recommended wasting your money

Breakfast is not breakfast unless you have eaten here. Awesome stuff! Well worth the stay at the Maraboon and well worth the meal at the Capricorn.

Went to dinner with my family, had to wait a long time for service and even longer for meals. However once the meals finally arrived after an hour wait to be served and an hour wait to receive, they were nice.

I stayed at the motel next to this restaurant and they complement each other as they both have great service. The meal was great and the service was very friendly I ordered my meal and it came before I knew it. There was a wide variety of drinks to choose from that was fun and the bar staff were great...
