Tables spill out across terra-cotta tiles at this busy waterside restaurant in the Airlie Beach Hotel complex. Capers' mainstream Mod-Oz menu covers all bases, from Wagyu steak to barramundi to Aussie game. If you're game, try the crocodile tail, kangaroo, and emu skewers. Food quality varies, and there's no table service: you have to pre-pay and pick up your food and drinks from the bar. Capers do terrific breakfasts until noon; otherwise, a Bloody Mary and something
from the tapas menu may be your best bet. Plenty of alfresco tables mean you can usually sit outside, even if you haven't booked ahead.
