We had been to Kaptans several times in the past and again the restaurant did not disappoint. The service was very efficient, courteous and prompt, without being rushed or overbearing. We had the Pate and bratwurst as starters and all had the schnitzel for mains. The schnitzel is great, maybe a tad over priced, but this is a snow town.... More

Went to Kaptans on Saturday night with a cousin and we had a great time. I have been 4 times over the last 15 years and it never disappoints. It was my cousins first time at Kaptans and he couldn't believe the quality of the food, service provided by the staff and the general ambience of the restaurant. Everyone should... More

I had the beef tenderloin which was cooked to perfection and my husband has the lamb and it too was delicious. Good value, portions were perfect when you add in the side dish, lovely wine list and very friendly and attentive staff.

As we are staying at the Grimmus Hotel, Kaptans Restaurant is very convenient to eat out. Meals are pretty much up there with the best. We were recommended the schnitzel and wasn't disappointed except for the portion size. We also had the beef for two which was sensational. The wait staff are excellent - especially Bella and Johnno. They made... More

Austrian classics with a modern twist, this has long been the friendliest and best quality alpine restaurant in Victoria.

One of the best Restaurant on the mountain, fantastic food, fantastic fun night out. Try the schnitzel ( real Austrian style) with potato salad you will come back year after year and round it up with a weissbeer and 2 or 3 apple schnaps & you might be lucky to end up with some snuff as well if Hans Grimus...

Very friendly staff and knowledgeable, we were able to rock up without a reservation. The wine selection was good, we ordered 700g of beef with Vegetables for two, our eyes were bigger than our stomach, even with our ski appetite we could not eat all the food that was provided. Nice swiz style ambience of pine woodwork and lots of... More

The staff were lovely - very professional and friendly and the decor is as you would expect an Austrian chalet restaurant to be! It's warm and welcoming! As for the food! The steak tartare is really of... More

I have been here few times and the food at Kaptans has always been something I look forward too. The owner is very friendly taking his time visiting each customer. Hoping if there is any branch in Melbourne ?

We came for our 30th wedding anniversary, wanting something special. We found it! We loved the styling of the restaurant, and the walls told the history of the mountain. The service was attentive while not hovering or being intrusive. We had the Chateaubriand for two, served medium-rare. Absolutely exquisite! Highly recommended.

Thank Alan S
