Caprice is our go-to date night place on special occasions and we’ve eaten very well every time. It was also one of the first few surprise dates we had when I first moved to Hong Kong from Beijing and the long and tedious weekly Macau-Hong Kong commutes began in 2011. And chef Vincent Thierry is an old mate of the husband, so we’re always getting extra little surprises during our meal. Service always faultless and the food, simple and consistent.
The crab tiramisu, one of the signature dishes and one of my personal favourites.

The Cheese room and its jaw dropping selection is a regular conversation starter. Nevermind the Michelin stars – there are several in the city of Hong Kong, but the choice of cheese – everything you dream about from the best cheese areas of Europe, especially that 48 months aged Comte, a grainy salty texture similar to Parmeggiano, but way creamier and way more personality – we wouldn’t have guessed it was a Comte!
First class service, beautifully plated pristine courses with stunning harbour views, a well thought through wine list at reasonable prices – what’s not to love about this date place?
Reservations are not easy to get, so best to book in advance, and while not a regular place to go dine for most of us, it’s worth the special date night out. Or lunch for that matter. Book in advance for a window seat offering stunning harbour views of Hong Kong.

*Updates, Caprice lost a star in the Michelin 2014 guide as its former chef left. New 2 Michelin starred chef Fabrice Vulin is at the Helm and we’re looking forward to trying the food there.
