Location is not wonderful, but view from restaurant terrace is very nice. Food is very good, but maybe too fusion and too complicate, and a little bit to expensive. Champagne selection is limited and very expensive. The atmosphere is refined, but a little bit cold. Service is fair.

We had a little trouble finding this place, but we are glad that we did! This is a beautifully decorated restaurant that feels very European. The menu however is a completely unexpected mixture of fares ranging from French to African. The wine list is also very diverse. We started off with a bottle of rosé and the mezze platter which...

The restaurant is beautiful. I absolutely loved it. However, the service leaves much to be improved. The servers were not attentive and kept on forgetting things we asked for. The food was ok. It wasn't bad but for the reputation of this place I expected better.

On a clear day sit outside on the terrace of this excellent restaurant, tea and coffee place. Afternoon teas with scones and clotted cream will bring you back to Devonshire taste. Fantastic location over the roofs south of Tian an men.

This restaurant has a interesting location on the border of the the fake-old Qianmen district and imposing Qianmen Gate / Tienanmen Square. The art-deco inspired decoration and soft lighting makes for a stylish but relaxing ambiance. THE GOOD: - The dessert is this restaurant's strongest course. Capital M is justifiably known for its light and fluffy Pavlova and its other... More

Went there for Sunday brunch - service is not top notch but they have been attentive and polite Food is great! The big weekend fry is particularly impressive. I like my yogurt with fresh fruit too! Ambience is unbeatable! I mean I don't really want to go somewhere which is too formal and makes me feel uneasy on a Sunday... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to have a drink and relax. We did NOT have the food here, but drinks were very good. Service was great. And surprisingly, not over-priced like Houhai area in Beijing! We were seated on the terrace. It had a nice view of Qianmen. I got the sense it was a comfortable... More

We waited for 10 minutes at the hostess stand for someone to acknowledge us. It was 12 noon and only about 3 tables were taken but we received a strange look when we asked for a table for 2 for lunch. Overall, the food was tasty (especially the fresh bread and butter). Its not cheap but on par for Beijing.... More
