Caprice has recently regained its 3 Michelin stars. Maybe it's about time to go back for a visit. Our first visit was over 5 years ago. 5 years had passed and the restaurant itself looked the same with not much changes while the visitors had aged with pretty significant changes in life.

A table for two had been reserved a few weeks ago but window seats couldn't be guaranteed. Fortunately they still managed to give us a nice table overlooking the Kowloon side across the Victoria Harbour.

Service was pretty good as soon as I stepped into the restaurant. I noticed that my skirt was made dirty for some reason and the server offered to give me a wet towel to clean it. There was a small stool to place my handbag beside our seats, which was a really considerate arrangement. Service was pretty attentive although they could have refilled our hot water faster. They did try to remove the bread crusts from our table from time to time. They also tried to offer bread as soon as we had finished those on our plate. If all of the servers could have worn even bigger smiles on their faces, it could have been even better for a 3 Michelin stars restaurant in an international branded hotel like this.

We had the luxury to order lunch sets of 5 courses with 1 appetiser + soup + fish + meat + dessert at $895+10% including coffee/tea. Each of us chose something different so that we could try more dishes.

Bread & Butter

A bread basket was brought to us shortly after we had placed our orders. Here are all the choices of bread. 
The chilli and butter roll was pretty soft and buttery. It was actually slightly sweet and slightly spicy. It was also very ductile. I think it tasted quite good. 
The sesame roll was even better. It was slightly crispy with soft and pretty ductile interior! It smelt really good. It was slightly oily though.
The chestnut bread was too cold and not good.
The baguette had really crispy crust but was nothing special. 
The unsalted pyramid butter was really too tasteless. The salted butter was ok.

Amuse-bouche (Lobster Mousse)

The lobster mousse tasted ok but it was too salty after finishing the whole thing. There seemed to be some yuzu on top and some crispy crisps on top and at the bottom to add some texture to the mousse.

Here you go our appetisers.

Scallop Carpaccio with Cauliflower Variation

Fresh scallops which tasted like having been marinated. The cubes were so crispy and were like apples both taste- and texture-wise but we were told they were made from cauliflowers and celery. A refreshing dish. Overall, it was ok but nothing too special.

Foie Gras Terrine with Cocoa, Fresh Mandarine and Marmalade

This dish was quite special with cocoa powder and a layer of cocoa coating on the terrine. Overall it was slightly sweet due to the cocoa and mandarine and marmalade. It was not greasy at all. 

Then it comes to our soups.

Pumpkin Variation with Truffle Cream

The truffle cream didn't taste very strong. We didn't add $250 for black truffle. The crispy cookie(?) in the middle was good to add some texture. The pumpkin soup was of course very good which was really concentrated. There were quite some pumpkin cubes too. Good soup but I had expected more from a 3 Michelin stars restaurant.

Mushroom Cappuccino with Parmesan Cheese Emulsion

Again the soup itself was good which was really concentrated. There were also some mushroom cubes too. The parmesan cheese emulsion was not strong at all. There seemed to be a thin slice of mushroom skin on top of the soup.

Then we had our fish dishes.

Turbot, Fennel and Orange, Saffron Sauce 

The Saffron sauce on its own was a bit spicy. The turbot itself was tender but could have been even more so. The dish was overall good but again nothing too special. I had expected more.

Spelt Risotto with Brittany Seafood, Sea Urchin Foam

The spelt risotto was very special. Never eaten something like this before. They were very very chewy and didn't taste like pasta. They were more like crispy seeds without their skin removed. The sea urchin foam wasn't too rich in sea urchin. The Brittany Seafood actually included one piece of lobster, squid and 2 small clams. The lobster was pretty fresh. The squid was ok while the 2 small clams seemed to be below average. Overall a better than average rating due to the surprising spelt risotto, although I actually preferred normal risotto more.

Then we were served the meat dishes. They had taken a relatively longer time to serve them, maybe to let us take a longer break.

Roasted Lamb Saddle with Eggplant and Black Garlic, Natural Jus

The plate with butterflies looked very pretty! The lamb saddles were roasted quite well with a layer of black garlic coating which was crispy. But they didn't smell or taste particularly good, just tender enough. The eggplant was too salty though. There was 2 slices of crisps on the plate. The sauce was ok. I would say the most special point about this dish was the black garlic coating. The lamb themselves could have been even better. The portion of the dish was quite big though!

Burgaud Duck with Quince and Celeriac Puree

The duck breast was cooked quite well, which was pretty tender and juicy with a layer of crispy skin! It was slightly sweet due to the quince and celeriac. The toppings on top of the duck breast added some crispy texture to the duck breast. I would rate this dish 4.5 although I was never a fan of duck breasts. This dish was really quite good. 

Finally our desserts.

This one was very light with sufficient ingredients. It was really refreshing. However, I preferred the other because of personal preferences of chocolates

Hazelnut Sable and Jivara Chocolate Cream, Hazelnut Ice Cream 

It was a crispy hazelnut sable with jivara chocolate cream which was really my favourite. The hazelnut ice cream was good too! Delicious! I think there could have been more layers and different textures in the hazelnut sable though.

Iced Chocolate with Skimmed Milk

Coffee/tea was included in the lunch set. Sugar was served on the side and the waitress kindly reminded us to try a sip before adding the syrup. The chocolate was ok and was sweet enough without any syrup although we had had even better iced chocolate elsewhere.

Petit Fours 

Unfortunately the waiter didn't introduce the pastries to us! The chestnut(?) pastry on the leftmost was yummy. The jivara chocolate tart in the middle was crunchy enough although not too crispy. The plain milk chocolate was ok with nothing special. I wish there could have been something fruity.

Let me attempt to compare this dining experience with those recent experiences at other top-notch French restaurants:
