I've eaten in virtually every restaurant in the Okanagan now, and this is still my favorite. Highest praise for the souvlaki dinner, everything done to perfection. Five Stars for the Chef of this casual, comfortable, friendly establishment!🌞

The food was okay. We only had grilled cheese and fries so not much can go wrong. Not a very big portion of fries. The atmosphere is a quite and family oriented. Decor is old school.

Capitol has been in its current location about 30 years, and it was operating a few doors down the street before that
