I love Ela! The food and the service is always excellent. I particularly enjoy a meal from the lunch menu. Souvlaki skewer, Greek salad, and a side of calamari. If you request it, they will serve it at dinner as well.

We had a lovely lunch here. The food is fresh and healthy for the most part. The salads could have been a little bigger but overall it was good food and a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and informative.

I had the spinach salad with a wrap. My wife had Greek salad and wrap. The spinach salad is the best I've had in Halifax or Dartmouth! Prices are pretty good for the amount of food you get and the staff are really nice! My kid didn't like the cheese pizza, but she's a picky eater. Great place, highly recommended!!

Hit here 6 pm Friday night. Not busy at all but we always eat well here. Our waitress was nice and fun and quick. Got us our drinks and gave us space and time to chat. When we finally got around to ordering the appetizer platter that I loved so much was gone. We asked about it but she agreed... More

I go here quite often with friends and family, or even by myself. The menu offers lots of tasty choices for the vegetarian and vegan along with all of the other fare. Those lemon potatoes are simply the best! Fresh ingredients, flavourful and something for everyone. Clean, cozy and very friendly, knowledgeable servers.

Really enjoyed our dinner at Ela! Pleasant ambiance. Great service. Food was really wonderful. Recommend the Mediterranean Trio as a starter — generous portions. The Lemon Potato as a side (in lieu of rice or in addition to) was something different and a great accompaniment to our platters. Would definitely recommend.

My brother in-law and I split the Grilled platter and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of food. The grilled scallops were cooked perfectly, as was the lamb. Highly recommend this restaurant and as an added bonus on Sunday the wines were half price and they have a decent selection.
