Could not fault the restaurant

Walked in and we were promptly seated. Our drink order was taken straight away and delivered minutes later. Food order was taken, with little fuss. I ordered the slow cooked ribs, the staff delivered the meal quickly. The rib serving was large, delicious, tender and fell off the bone. If I... read more

Tonight my Boyfriend and I had the privilege of dining at Capricornian Restaurant at Emerald in central Queensland. The food was beautifully cooked and well presented, the staff were friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. Highly recommended. Lee and Ian.

We came up to attend at the Breast Cancer Fundraising Dinner. We just loved it. Their desert buffet presentation was so amazing. I haven't quite seen anything similar anywhere else in the country including the capital cities. It reminds me of the high tea spread at Raffles in Singapore.

$35 for the rump steak. The first one that came out was still on fire. Medium to burnt -- the waiter literally dropped the plate on the table and bolted. I said to him later that even he must have been embarrassed. He said he was busy. Rump steak two was as tough and tasted disgusting. The salad was old... More

Business was busy, and there was much happy chatter amongst the clientele, the majority of whom were still there late at night

Had a very nice dinner, sat in the outside area, service was excellent, food was yummy and value for money (not stingy), on the high end of the price scale but worth it. Will be back again :)

This place has great food. Lacks atmosphere and the owner is always lurching around. I sense some staff feel a little uncomfortable with it. Nonetheless everyone is friendly and I eat here every week. Seriously though, the ribs are incredible!!!! Maybe look into some live entertainment on a Friday and Saturday night? Campbell
