This is one of the best restaurants we have been to, the food and service is excellent and we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who stays in our unit at Clifton Beach. When we come to Cairns we eat here almost every night :)

We have been going to Capers for over 6 years. It is a great restaurant for both locals and visitors. Marty (Chef/Owner) provides not only the best food in Cairns but also the best service - he genuinely cares about you enjoying the experience. The Menu is constantly changing so there is variety. If you don't have time to eat-in then try his great Pizzas- once again the best in Cairns. Try his Supreme with extras - Wow!

In 2007 we haven been in Clifton Capers Bar.Situated in a residential quarter but not far from the beach.The food is excellent. The German owner presents a.o. Schnitzels en Sauerkraut and once a week there is a harmonica (accordeon) player.Lovely place.

We visit Capers often and I have to say that Marty and his gang there have created something very special in their menu and service. Definitely a must for anyone visiting or even locals like us.

Lived just down the road for 2 years in 2000/01

great people run/own the place, the best schnitzel I have ever tasted.

We used to order food in the restaurant and if our kids played up they would let us take it home and bring the plates etc. back the next day.

miss the place alot.

We came across Clifton Capers by chance having walked the beach from Trinity. On our map it showed the premises as a shop, what a wonderful surprise & relief to find it was a Bar/Grill. We had some very cool drinks which were much needed, and decided we would like to stay for a meal. We didn't know it was the owners (2nd?) anniversary of their opening of Clifton Capers, but despite all the other things going on, we were treated wonderfully and had a wonderful meal ( 10 out of 10 ). Even though the guys (owners) had such an important evening going on, they still had time to check we were happy with our meal and service !
This was one of our most memorable evenings in Cairns and I would like to thank the guys and staff for a truly great time.

The food was fantastic. The presentation and the selection of choices exceeded expectation. I had the “fish of the day” and it was delicious. The fact that you can bring your own wine made it even better. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting top class food, at a reasonable price, in a relaxed setting.
