Simply the very best dining in Emerald. Great service. Fully licensed with indoor and outdoor areas. Incredible menu and food always cooked to perfection with the freshest ingredients. The huge flame grilled rib eye on the bone with roast veg is a must and the seafood is always of the highest quality. The desserts are also a sweet tooths' heaven.... More

The furnishings, decor, food, wine list and service were all excellent with very reasonable pricing for the experience. Emerald is fortunate to have a restaurant of this standard which deserves a number one rating for the region.

Whilst I didn't eat here, I did enjoy a few quiet beers at the bar. I managed to peruse the menu and it looked very sophisticated. Not at all what I was expecting. Considering it was Tuesday night it was very busy and the barman had his work cut out keeping up with the cocktail orders being barked at him... More

I had the pork pappardelle and had numerous pieces of cartilage and grissle - it was inedible. I was not only disappointed greatly in the meal but the service I received when informing the waiter and manager of my poor experience at the time of the meal, after the meal and before paying and was still forced to pay full...

Decided to have a meal out in Emerald. Chose the Capricornia as we had not been there before. Venue décor is very nice. Our table was near the rear and with padded chairs! I hate wooden chairs when dining out! First thing I noticed was that there were no coasters for the drinks and the moisture pools on the wooden... More

I had the pork papardelle and asked for it without chilli which they obliged. So glad I asked and didn't choose something different because it was delicious!!! Scrapped it clean. My friend had a steak and said it was awesome as well. I had creme brûlée for dessert and equally as yum! Pity I was only passing through town as... More
