Fussy Foodies from Portland Oregon made the Caprice hotel AND the CAPRICE RESTAURANT our base of operations 21-24 Sept, 2014. Hotel was Marvelous, but I would like to talk up the Caprice Restaurant.

Upon arrival we found ourselves in a dining room that felt like you were at home….a pleasant surprise. The view of the mountains in front of you stunning and calming. The staff was exceptional.

We split the smoked salmon appetizer and I'm glad we did as the portion was large. The presentation was good and the flavor was excellent. For our main course I had the pigeon and my boyfriend had the sirloin, both were excellent and the plates were works of art. For dessert we split the chocolate and coffee mousse, delicious once...

We ate at the restaurant for 7 consecutive nights in June on a half board basis. The food was very impressive indeed. It was high quality, beautifully presented and fresh ingredients were always used. The team are to be congratulated on the consistent high standard, the varying menu and the quality of table service. We were not disappointed on any... More

We stayed in Wengen 4 days and we had 2 dinners here. Frankly it would have beaten the No.1 restaurant in TA ranking in Wengen hands down. The chefs produced some world class dishes and the scenery from the restaurant was majestic. We loved the scallop, the French Bouillabaisse, the sturgeon, braised quail and talbot. Well done guys. Keep up... More

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
