No - The food is good also (dreadful omission by me in my post) - It has Spanish food, prepared and presented the Spanish way - no plastic pictures of hamburgers here. [But, MS you are entitled to your opinion).
The Wine List is extensive and excellent. This restaurant is different than any other I know in the area.
But, if you are celebrating an anniversary, new arrival, purchase of a new apartment, 21st birthday, 50th birthday, your recent hole-in-one in golf, or any special occasion La Capilla is special.

What the f*** do "plastic pictures of hamburgers" have to do with Spanish food????
Jose and his mother serve up over cooked local food that leaves a lot to be desired. But the excellent service and amazing setting more than makes up for it. Don't go for the food - go for the ambience. Personally, I love it - in the summer, out in the Italian gardens. I don't go in the winter.
Thank you Caravans for a colourful post. I merely pointed out that La Capilla is an excellent restaurant and (to me) everything about the place seems right especially for important family occasions.
I am of a generation of those who does not appreciate pictures of hamburgers, fried eggs, chips, sausages, black-pudding, beans, mushrooms, liver, toast etc within a menu. I feel if a restaurant has to show food in this way, it lacks maturity and even respect for discerning foodies. Furthermore, most of us know what sausages etc look like.
I like a well prepared menu (in Spanish or English) describing the feast ahead. A well laid table, with tablecloth, decent cutlery, non plastic chairs, proper wine glasses and friendly waiters (good food and good chef = utmost importance also). I don't apologise for this.
I would suggest that plastic pictures of food would be more acceptable in MacDonalds or some other Americanised fast-food joints where young children frequent and have difficulties of choice.
