I’m not use to write reviews on TripAdvisor but La Capilla deserves it. We went for dinner and everything was amazing, the starters, mains, dessert... Moreover, the place is very charming. We have tried many top restaurants during our stay in NZ and this was the best surprise. We went there by coincidence and it was one of the best (maybe the best) dinners. Congrats!

This is quite possibly the Nelson region's top restaurant. A high-end Japanese chef preparing European food; Spanish, Italian, French, in an old NZ colonial church!
The times we've been have been truly special.
A great place for a special occasion - and a good in-between when you want to get out of Nelson but not as far as Mapua.
It's getting harder to find places that prepare food better than you might be able to do at home.
This is definitely far and away beyond that.
Go check it out.

This is a true culinary experience, wasted on the small minded palette. To experience food sourced locally, prepared with love and care by a true connoisseur, you will find sanctuary in La Capilla. The pricing is meagre in comparison to the expertise Chef Nagahama pours into crafting exquisite dishes - from the Serrano ham brushetta, through the Okinawa style pork belly, to the Pierna de Cordero and finishing with the palette soaking sensation of the Pics Peanut Butter Parfait. Experience local produce uniquely designed with European influences. Please don't bring the steak and chips crowd, this is for the true appreciator.

On a neighbours recommendation we dined on Valentines night. Very impressed. My wife had two entrées ko, marlin with tomato/ bacon and zucchini , and the pork belly. I had the haloumi on egg plant with salad entrée and the duck breast with sweet corn custard, stone fruit salad and cherry sauce main.
Excellent service and food.
Good wine list also.
We will do it again.
