The chef is exceptional, creative, colourful textures and wonderful tastes. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The friendly and professional staff together with the wonderful view all add to the magical experience. We would definitely recommend The Caprice Hotel to anyone.

Restaurant Caprice is part of Hotel Caprice. We were there last weekend with a party of 13, including 7 kids. Before dinner we caught up with the (Dutch) chefs (the kitchen is on the ground floor). Dinner was really, really good, from starter to desert. The desert was the highlight of the dinner. I compliment the chefs for making the... More

At 55 Swiss Francs for the set menu, this is not cheap and surpasses the guide prices listed here. The starter was very good - beef carpaccio. The main course was fine, but did not quite match the listing - potatoes non existent and simply style over substance. The pudding the simply poor - a cold, dry cut of a... More

We ate dinner twice in the Caprice restaurant whilst staying for a week in Wengen. The set dinner options were good value with a good balanced variety of food choices. The lamb main course being the highlight. Matched with the wine recommendations the restaurant is an excellent option for an upmarket dinner in Wengen.

We ate at the Caprice Restaurant over Christmas/New Year and were very impressed. The new chef has simplified the menu but made each dish absolutely superb, there is a choice of a fixed price three course menu or à la carte. We chose the fixed 3 courses all of which were beautifully presented and perfectly cooked. We have never before... More

We had dinner twice at the Caprice restaurant mainly because we liked it a lot the first night. The food was very good and the service was excellent! Definitely good value for money considering Switzerland is expensive!

We had wanted to try the restaurant during our stay in Wengen in early August. We were not staying at the hotel but in a nearby chalet. Unfortunately the restaurant only serves a set menu and only 5 courses. It caters to meat eaters predominantly. There was a vegetarian option but no fish on the days we were in Wengen... More

I guess food quality is relative to expectations, experience and personal palate. But there are basic service requirements that waiters in a restaurant of a well-regarded hotel of a well-regarded Alpine resort should meet: they should dont accuse their guests of not finishing their meal, and they should not refuse to check with the kitchen whether individual changes to the...

The soup was coloured with food colouring and the main course was covered with a packet sauce. Not good value for money.

The food was wonderful, the view is absolutely spectacular and the service was great as well. It was a fixed menu and you were given the option of how many courses, we chose 3 and they bought the fourth by mistake, which the waiter promptly recognized as his mistake but told us to enjoy it. We were actually so full... More
