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...

After contemplating which restaurant to eat on a special occasion, we decided to check out the Capricornia Restaurant. We had heard from some of our friends that the food was great. So, we feel it's a must to celebrate our daughter's birthday there. I love the environment and the restaurant itself was clean and it's set up was great. We... More

Meals are very satisfying. The steak was mouthwateringly trender. We spent a relaxing and enjoyable 2 hours there having a meal, couple of drinks and a long conversation. We'll... More

Change your menu and your butcher the rump was the toughest I have in years and apparently it was wagyu I don't normally comment like this but when you pay top dollar ($35)for a meal and end up with a local $12 pub meal which in this case a better steak I feel it's needed. Seems Emerald has become to... More
