Come on the weekends for great brunches. Sit outside for great views of Qianmen, the old gate nearby.

Not as good food as Maison Boulud but you can have a nice view if you get a good table and it isn't a 'misty' day

Housed in a historic building on the centuries-old Qianmen Dajie, Capital M has an emphasis on modern European cooking, incorporating elements from as far as North Africa.

The restaurant is beautiful. I absolutely loved it. However, the service leaves much to be improved. The servers were not attentive and kept on forgetting things we asked for. The food was ok. It wasn't bad but for the reputation of this place I expected better.

On a clear day sit outside on the terrace of this excellent restaurant, tea and coffee place. Afternoon teas with scones and clotted cream will bring you back to Devonshire taste.Fantastic location over the roofs south of Tian an men.

We had a little trouble finding this place, but we are glad that we did! This is a beautifully decorated restaurant that feels very European. The menu however is a completely unexpected mixture of fares ranging from French to African. The wine list is also very diverse. We started off with a bottle of rosé and the mezze platter which was a variety of mediterranean dips such as hummus and tzatziki along with their freshly made lavash bread, and an order of caviar. For our main courses, I ordered an African pie (vegetarian), and Renny went for the suckling pig which is their specialty. My African pie wasn't the best, but Renny loved the pig. The dessert menu is also very unique with a wide range of choices. We ordered figs with black pepper ice cream and it was delicious. The prices are high and the quality is good. The menu is one of the most diverse we have come across and this is a fun place to try new things, kick back, and enjoy the view, that is, if the smog will allow it.

It is the first building in the street on the left (opposite Starbucks). Find an entrance at its sides and make it to the third floor. Don't look for any signs-there are none. Once you found it: enjoy
