Had the best breakfast I have had in Airlie Beach there. Food was served hot, fresh and promptly. Coffee was good as well. Had a corn fitter stack filed with bacon eggs avocado and rocket, was lovely and a good size fuelling me up for the day. Also had coffee and cake there a couple of nights later, this was also good quality and value.

What is with the no table service?! If I'd known I wouldn't have gone. I understand why they do it - just in case people walk out without paying - but surely they have enough staff on the monitor the table situation.
Apart from that my lunch was beautiful - pork three ways salad. Gorgeous location and newly refurbished with nice comfy sofas. I was just shocked that I had to stand to the side and wait for my wine bucket, wine and tray of glasses which I then desperately tried not to smash on the ground....honestly, is it really that hard that not one waitress/waiter could help.....and no they weren't busy.

Sad to see, Not Recommended.

Capers has just under gone a magger refurbishment. Ha, looks the part although has gone backwards in my eyes. They have added a great look although taken away customer service & good food. It has in my eyes turned into a cash cow with only pub grub on offer (expensive pub grub $$). No table service is available, all food & drinks need to be payed for at the counter prior to receiving. So if your food is crap, (which it was). It does not leave you with a leg to stand on, as you have already payed. Not to mention there is not a staff member in sight to talk to any way . Just a couple of people picking up plates & cleaning tables (periodically)
I am a local here in AB, Capers in my mind has been angled to get the tourist in, get your money & not really care if you return.

From being a very loyal customer, Capers you have lost me…….
