Description: 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.

“Great food - great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The staff were really helpful, friendly but respectful and treat you like you are their most special guests. Good discount for members of the DHO. Well worth a visit and next time we will go earlier in the day to take advantage of the wonderful views - we are told lunch is well worth staying in the village for

“Trust the #1 Restaurant in Wengen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I came to the Caprice Restaurant as a walk in customer at the begining of February, and was immediately greeted and welcomed into the restaurant despite not having a reservation. The service personnel warmly welcomed our family and showed us to our table . Despite the restaurant being quite busy, we were given a high standard of service, which matched the 4 course dinner that we were served. In particular, the soup and main course stood out as the best food I enjoyed on my stay in Switzerland. These aspects, coupled with a warm atmosphere and extensive wine list combined to create a memorable and tasty evening. The cooks were also kind enough to accomodate my fussy daughter, and gladly prepared an item from the lunch menu.. Thank you again!

We reccomend this restaurant not only because of the food, but because of the atmosphere and the staff which completes the experience. Thank you again Caprice Restaurant!!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have been coming back to the Hotel Caprice for years, but what makes the stay always really special is the exquisite restaurant. It is well worth taking the daily menu offer in the evenings and enjoy the culinary journey of a truly European kitchen with a strong Swiss side to it.
Excellent, personalized service, fantastic taste combinations and a varied experience even if you eat here every evening of your stay.
