La Capilla, which literally translates to “the chapel” in Spanish, strives to serve delectable, Mediterranean-inspired dishes in a unique atmosphere. Its rustic interiors and beautiful and peaceful surroundings make it the ideal spot to indulge in a midday or evening meal. La Capilla’s idyllic environment is a testament to the importance of maintaining a clean, sophisticated, yet comfortable setting that both children and adults can enjoy. Locally-grown, organic, and in-season ingredients, and as well as a wide range of New Zealand and Spanish wines, are sourced to create an outstanding dining experience, perfect to be shared with family and friends. Thus, relax in our restaurant’s warm ambience and hospitality, and delight in our fantastic menu. Come dine and have a new Nelson culinary experience with us here at La Capilla!
