I often come here and have the legendary "Capitol Burger" (or the veal cutlets!), but now and then I get in a classical Hellenic mood, and go for one of the Souvlaki platters. Can't go wrong with this choice: perfect EVERYTHING in this dish! Just bring your appetite, as it's a sizable portion,and you will want to have room for... More

I have come to the Capitol Restaurant many times and every time I do the experience is marvelous. I recently visited Penticton this holiday season in 2016 and it is just as good as ever. The service from all the staff is amazing and they are very personal and kind to their clients, and they even remembered me from months... More

They really don't make restaurants like this anymore. A great family restaurant that offers excellent 'old school' menu choices. Comfortable, casual, and the staff will make you feel right at home here.

We enjoyed heading into Capital Restaurant because it had a neat retro feel which assured us of great food! We were not disappointed. I had the Denver sandwich with an amazing green salad and house oregano dressing. My partner had a roast beef sandwich with fries. He started with a yummy lentil soup and we shared the best spanakopita I've... More

We don't live in Penticton but travel there frequently. Used to always go to the Elite, about a block south on Main St, but they seem to have really cut back on the food quality and portions. A friend recommended the Capitol, and it is now the place I look forward to visiting when in Penticton. Totally my kind of... More

In a wonderful location in the 200 block of downtown it is easy to find, lots of parking in front and in the back alley behind. They always have wonderful affordable daily specials - be... More

I dine at this family-run restaurant quite frequently when I am in town, and it's always a pleasant experience. This trip I seriously enjoyed the "Capitol Burger" which is a real home-style burger in a style very strongly reminiscent of the classic late-60s to early 70s "Deluxe Burger with Cheese" (a la SuperValue lunch counter, etc ). If you are... More
