If I could only go to one western restaurant in Beijing one last time it would be Capital M. Superb bar, superb ambience, superb service, superb food, superb location. Really classy place and while they take it seriously they are never serious, if you know what I mean. I set a high standard for restaurants I visit and when I... More

Beautifully located, staring out on to the southern part of Tiananmen Square, Capital M provides a delicious array of modern "western/European" cuisine .. not cheap, but with its eclectic decorations and excellent service, it is worth it. Brunch at the weekends is a good deal and the business lunches deals during the week are worth a look. Perhaps not as... More

Well after looking where to eat we wanted french flavours, issue at first was the taxi to get there as they didn't want to take us there, however we got a lift from the hotel. Once there we found we were near Tianamin Subway so that is the best way to and from the area. Regarding the meal, service was... More

Of course I had heard about Capital M but for a reason or another I had not been bothered to take the 20 minute taxi journey earlier. I must say that it was worth the taxi ride; such a nice feeling to have perfect service and having nothing to complain about. I was especially happy about cloakroom (into having to... More

I did want one night in Beijing away from the delicious Asian food that I was enjoying so much. Several friends had recommended Capital M. I got reservations and headed by taxi to find this restaurant. I did read a few other reviews of people having similar problems of finding the Capital M entrance. It's down a pedestrian way that...

If you need a break from Chinese food as a tourist but still want to feel like you're in Beijing and not in some generic Western chain restaurant, then Capital M's the place for you. It's got a spectacular view of the Qianmen Gate and an atmosphere that's both romantic and upscale. The food's got a wide selection of Western... More

My boyfriend and I went for our Christmas dinner. Although we got a bit lost on the way- the taxi driver didn't know how to get to the pedestrian street, Capital M still kept our reservation and even got on the phone with the driver to help. The restaurant atmosphere was stunning- beautiful interior, low lighting and fireplaces, and a... More

The experience was everything we hoped for, the food was excellent, as was the service and atmosphere. Great views, very relaxing and unhurried.
