Capitol is a great place to take your significant other for a romantic, fancy dinner. The menu is always stellar, with a focus on seasonal produce, and on-trend dishes. They are always happy to cater to Vegan, gluten free or dairy free dietary requirements, and the staff are all knowledgable with regard to this, which makes dining with fussy eaters a relative breeze!

The food is awesome, decor classy and the staff friendly

Situated just at the end of the hustling Courtney Place nightlife, beside the Embassy Theatre. Capitol is a restaurant you can trust, a well-rounded menu, with fantastic service sees everyone pleased. The food is mainly European, and with enough variety to please every kind of customer. A safe, sure bet in wellington with outstanding food. Open lunch through dinner with brunch hours on the weekend.
