Our fine-dining gourmet restaurant overlooking the Jungfrau massif is a warmly lit room, fitted with plush banquettes and discrete seating arrangements. Most tables have wonderful views of the Jungfrau and surrounding mountains, with their ever changing scenery. Our large south facing sun terrace offers stupendous views of the Jungfrau mountain and the valley below. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We also serve lunch (and in summer also dinner) on the terrace during the many fine weather days. The dinner menus change daily, and offer great gourmet delights. Our Executive Chef John Patrick de Ruiter and his team are looking forward to preparing you a delightful dinner.

We are regular visitors to this hotel and the restaurant has gone from strength to strength. The presentation has always been excellent and the variety and breadth of the chef's skills are evident both on the menu and on the table. The views from the hotel over the Jungfrau really cannot be equalled and the ambiance and atmosphere in the... More

We went for a simple lunch on a sunny day. I had a steak tartare sandwich, a first for me. It was sublime! The best steak tartare I have ever had. Home made sourdough was fantastic. My wife had a duck rillette salad which was very good. Following days of utilitarian on piste lunches, Caprice was certainly a pleasant surprise.... More

I have been a regular visitor to Wengen since 1964 and have eaten in every restaurant there many times over those 50 years !! The Caprice has always been on the other side of the railway tracks for me, an interesting Boutique Hotel, one of the few in which I gave not stayed. My guests ( we were 5 )... More

We dined in the restaurant every evening during a 7 day ski holiday at the hotel and were running out of superlatives to describe the food by the end of the week. The food at Caprice Restaurant is truly exceptional. We were staying at the hotel on a half board basis. Each day at breakfast we were shown the set... More

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...

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 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.
