I was in Beijing visiting my soon who is there for a year and he and his girlfriend were craving "western food"; something with lots of cheese and carbs, so we landed on Italian and Cepe seemed to place to go. We were right -- the food, service and ambiance all hit the mark. Nice selection of apps and entrees,... More

Having spent the last week travelling around Asia due to work, this was the nicest meal that we have had so far. The restaurant isn't big so would certainly recommend that you book your table in advance. The decor tries to exude exclusivity and does I think but in a Chinese way (a good copy!). The menu is varied with... More

This is the Italian restaurant within the Ritz Carlton Financial Street, Beijing. It's a stylish restaurant with a nice menu. The food however is not so memorable. If it were not promoted as such a high end restaurant, I'd rate in more favourably, but in the end the food and pricing are not aligned. But I guess what can be... More

The service was attentive yet odd. The food was good, but not terribly memorable. What was most shocking was the fact that a chunk of mirror came crashing down in the midst of dinner just a few feet from our table. Had someone been standing under the mirror, it could have been fatal. What actually made up for the dinner... More

Impeccable service, but the food left something to be desired. Both my husband and I started with the mushroom risotto, which came out so al Dante it was not risotto at all. We then had our mains, I the veal cheek and my husband the snapper. My husband sent his back b/c the dish was extremely fishy and just tasted... More

Best Italian food I've had in China by far. Hotel is sleek and modern with Asian-inspired decor. The restaurant ambiance and service are perfect. Food is divine.

Is it worth $75 to $150 per person to eat such exquisite food in such luxurious surroundings? Certainly once in a lifetime. Attentive wait staff and servers made us feel like royalty. The amuse-bouches were themselves amazing. The menu was wonderful and the food better than expected. Even as Americans we were treated super nicely. A very special experience!

Cepe is the Italian restaurant at the Ritz Carlton in Beijing. It was, by far, the best meal I had in Beijing. The walnut cheese ravioli in truffle oil was delicious and memorable. The service was excellent, as one would expect at a Ritz Carlton. The ambience was "power-sheik" and befitting of our lunch guests. This is a "C-level" destination.
