Capital M is my favorite restaurant in Beijing. The atmosphere and decor are top notch.The food is fantastic! The best steak I have had in my life. The cocktails are so well made and the staff is very friendly and professional. Every staff member I have encountered seemed to be fluent or close to fluent in English and the menus... More

I went for a drink with a view, but there really isn't a view here. The dinner menu is limited and pricey, but their house white was quite good. The best white I've had in China, actually, so kudos to them for that. Sadly, they were unable to sell bottles to go. I had the asparagus appetizer, which was very... More

Arrived into the cool hall and seated at our reservation, air-conditioned inside, next to the terrace. Perfect position for comfort and scenery. I had the roasted suckling pig, my wife had the cod, the boy had pasta. The suckling pig was just superb. The skin roasted to crackling, as I could be heard while biting into it deliberately open lipped.... More

My friends and I had brunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was lovely and the menu was great with lots of variety. The cocktails were delicious and the staff were super, would definitely go here again if I'm ever back in Beijing.

I went there with a number of colleagues recently and really enjoyed the lunch there. We were properly served and the food was very decent given the price. I'd come back for dinner for sure!

I went with my 9yo son off the recommendation of a friend. Wonderful food and amazing view. Our taxi driver could not or would not take us all the way there due to pedestrian only areas. So we had to walk the last block our two. Navigated on foot with google maps. Taxi's were waiting right outside to take us... More

After living in Beijing for a year this was a great relaxing brunch. We sat on the terrace and overlooked Tianamen Square. I had the lamb roast which was fantastic! To finish off my meal I had a delicious passion fruit tart. I believe the food was fairly priced for foreign food in Beijing especially in a unique setting. The... More

Well, it does have a interesting view, and a sort of nice pedestrian area to walk around after dimmer. But WAY to expensive for what it is! The food wasn't bad...but nothing was outstanding....except the price!

Not an easy place to find (taxi drivers either don't know it or don't want to go there due to road restrictions around Tiananmen Square) or get back to your hotel from. Nice bar area, but the decor in the restaurant area is not so good. Eclectic western menu. Our starters were bland, but the main course was better. Not... More

There are few quality, independent restaurants in Beijing. I'm sure that will change in time, but other than Sanlitun or various hotel restaurants there is little on offer. Capital M is different. Outstanding view, overlooking the Palace and Tiananmen Square which are beautifully lit at night until ~10pm. There are few places in. Beijing that exude genuine atmosphere and style... More
