“one of the best meals in Wengen, but not cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The food was wonderful, the view is absolutely spectacular and the service was great as well. It was a fixed menu and you were given the option of how many courses, we chose 3 and they bought the fourth by mistake, which the waiter promptly recognized as his mistake but told us to enjoy it. We were actually so full that it was hard to enjoy, but not often do you get that level of service!

“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!!
