    Caprice is a business restaurant located at the Holiday Inn in Winnersh Triangle. That said is has an underground car park with lift access to reception and the restaurant. All of the courses that we ordered from the a la carte were delicious especially the mushroom ravioli and pork done 3 ways. Service was friendly and efficient. Will re-visit. The only criticism is that the prices are 20% higher than I would normally pay.

    Caprice Restaurant, Holiday inn Winnersh. The ambiance was helped by a rather good pianist in what is a standard hotel dining room. The wine selection is good and reasonably priced. The scallops were cooked perfectly but the starter was spoiled by the excessive use of chilies in the accompanying salad masking the subtle taste of the scallops. The steaks were very good, moist and flavourful (I asked for medium and as expected received medium rare which is what I wanted) as usual I would have liked more vegetables. The deserts were tasty and well presented and the meal was rounded off with good coffee and some petit fours. My only other comment would be that the maitre d' should have had a quiet word with four diners were excessively noisy.

    Food wasn't excellent but service was very good. 50£ for Christmas dinner was a bit too much considering the quality. Dessert was literally disgusting :(

    Didn't get given a menu when arriving, but that's about it for the moan....food was great, a grand supply of bread rolls and butter. The house wine was superb and getting a glass of wine in with the price and drinking mums was even better, but a good Father's Day had by all... :)

    We had dinner here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Excellent quality delicious food, good value set menu and interesting A la Carte choices. Great to see good local cheeses featured, even in the set menu. Ambience very good, with live piano in the background filtering through from adjacent bar. Service good, but at times a little more rushed than we would have chosen for this occasion. Definitely recommended.

    Excellent service - timely and efficient. The food is generally good (we have now been twice when we have stayed here) plus it is a really convenient venue for meeting with friends. It's location and accessibility are a real winner. Only complaint with the food was that the spinach (came with plaice) was somewhat stringy - they should use leaf beet instead; much more edible. Wine list is comprehensive and sensibly priced and the menus offer more than adequate choice. A useful addition to the local scene. We will go again and that's the real measure.
