Have finally made it to a long-intended dinner at Capitol - a walk without reservation restaurant which is one of the stars of Courtenay Place. We opted for brushetta - sourdough heaped with a vegetable and cheese medley which improbably featured carrots yet that worked - great flavours and freshly prepared. My "chicken breast" (quotes because it was more than just the breast - a large side of free range chicken - sat on top of a potato and onion cake with a gravy/sauce which added to an already excellent combination. Broccoli and almonds; roasted new potatoes - vegetables prepared with the meals they were to accompany clearly in mind. Recommended.

Capitol rocks. We hadn't been for ages, luckily timed it perfectly for a table of four (by my calculations we got the only table that opened up after we arrived - phew).
Had a delicious aperitif waiting at the bar (escaping me now - grapefruit, vodka…oh a sea breeze I think).
Two of us shared raw oysters (Tio Point) with a red onion vinegar dressing) - yum.
I had gnocchi with tuatuas, peas and white wine for main (I think I had the entree size, which was perfect after the oysters). It was actually perfect.
P had the half crayfish on a delicious sounding slaw.
S had the vegetarian pasta with two types of cheese, she said it was great.
M had scallops with proscuitto dust - wouldn't share - how mean.
S had pork belly which after the pasta she struggled to finish, but apparently it was worth the struggle.
M had duck leg confit - again wouldn't share, but it was TDF he said.
We shared a bottle of Ata Rangi Celebre, which went well with everyone's choices.
The dessert special was strawberry cheesecake with ginger crumbs and about 5 other elements, sadly I was too full to even try any but the two who had it said it was delicious.
I rate this as one of the best dining experiences in Wellington.

Simply good food, quality ingredients and excellent service sum Capitol up. We had dinner and the special of whitebait/asparagus with egg and the lambs fry. The food was simply delicious- simple but fresh flavors and impeccable service. Excellent wines by the glass.

Well, if birthday girl couldn't decide where she wants to go have brunch then I'll just have to steer her to Capitol who does the BEST scrabbled eggs in town. I was hanging out for a dose of the butter covered chive flecked golden mound of creamy eggy deliciousness but this was foiled by the lovely Irish lass informing us of one of the specials was grilled asparagus with fried whitebait and soft boiled egg and capers. I had to forego the eggs but B ordered them and she let me have forkful. Yep, still as good as ever. I simple love eating here as the food is always good and there is prompt cheerful service. Highly recommend.
