One of the most beautiful restaurants we've been to in our lives. Everything was perfect. The food, the wine, the music and all during the perfect sunset. We celebrated a birthday there and the staff was extremely nice to give us a complimentary cake and the violinists played happy birthday for us. Absolutely loved the place.

The decor was awesome leading into the dining room where the view is breathtaking! Spacious but can get filled quickly, they do live violinist who take requests as well which adds so much to the ambiance. The music can get a little loud at times, but I personally loved it, they Played anything from the Hungarian Dance to New York New York by Frank Sinatra and Moon River by Andy Williams. We also had them play La Vie En Rose and a few other requests. Food presentation was excellent as you would expect from a high end restaurant and the food was prepared excellent. I had some of the assorted bread, Carpaccio, Ratatouille, and the Filet Mignon. To Finish I had a Cappucino, and the Panna Cotta which were both excellent as well. All priced fair wrapped in excellent service, highly recommend. Do note it’s located a few blocks from the Malicon, but it is high up in the mountains so we elected to take a cab and we were glad we did!

Everyone was extremely kind and considerate during this crazy time. The food was delicious. We had the special.
Was surprised at the cost when we received our bill. Shame on me for not asking how much it was, but might have been nice if the waiter had shared that when he told us about that night’s special. I still love this restaurant and will be back!!
Highly recommend it to everyone for an enchanting dining experience!

The violin player was excellent although we have gone from three to one. The setting and view are outstanding. The food not bad. Slightly expensive for Mexico, but all the rest will make you forget that and say it was worth it.

My husband and I had an exceptional experience here. We arrived a little early for the sunset but our server did not rush us at all and even mentioned we may want to take our time. The staff here did not miss a beat and the food was fantastic. We’ll certainly be back and have already encouraged friends to check it out. The prices were a little higher than other restaurants in the area but still cheaper than the same quality meal back in the U.S. Definitely worth it.

The pizza was horrible. The waiter did not use a cloth when pouring our wine and we witnessed him wiping the top of the wine bottle with his index finger.

This was my third visit since January 2019. Very disappointed!!

The room and view are unsurpassed in PV. This visit to La Capella was a bit of a disappointment. We found the music much too loud . We have enjoyed the string trio in the past and much more so when they weren't mic'd . It just isn't necessary as felt too much like dinner theater, instead of a value add to the already gorgeous room and view. It just was distracting and difficult to enjoy our conversation.

Incredible view of Puerto Vallarta and the basilica. Beautiful hacienda, candlelight, art work and rose petals everywhere. Strolling violinists added magic to the evening. Martinis and wine were perfect. The service was a bit slow, but it was very crowded. Tasty Tuscan soup and a tender steak were dinner highlights. A bit disappointed in the ossobuco, which was somewhat dry and over ordinary mash potatoes. Pistachio mouse tasted refrigerated. However, despite these criticisms, I would go back to this restaurant and have already recommended it to others.
