We were pleasantly surprised to find such a nice restaurant in such a convenient location. The service and staff are very nice. We started with a fresh salad and flat bread with dips. For our mains I had the duck and my wife had the salmon. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. The portions were generous and we... More

Anyone who gives this place more than two stars obviously never visited the place in it's hey day. The times you used to walk in and the door was opened for you and you were greeted with a big hello and sometime even a hug! The lights were dim, tea lights lit, and the place had a real buzz. I...

I ate here on a Wednesday night. Was a great place to catch up with friends and able to chat in a relaxed environment. Not too noisy, background music is at a reasonable level and staff do there things without disturbing your conversation with friends. Staff are excellent and polite, great service! I am vegetarian and I did find the... More

Wonderful service and the best meals. I had the lamb ribs and hubby said his duck best he's had. Will definitely go back, but thus time on an empty tummy so I can pig out

Fantastic food with excellent service - good range of choices for dinner. Only minor comment is that it's slightly overpriced.

This suburban restaurant was fine for a mid-week meal. Not too fancy but pleasant surroundings with varied menu. It was about half full mid-week on a wet and cold winter night. Parking out front and not too crowded inside. The temperature inside was on the cool side - not unpleasant but a light jacket was necessary. The prices were mid-range.... More

Must have hit Ellacure on a one-off night. Despite the usual high level of service, our first choice wine was not available, our first choice side dish was not available and the main meals were served with over a five minute gap between the first person and the fifth. Not the usual standard we have experienced.

We (4 of us) went for breakfast/brunch. No going to go into detail what we had, but everything was cooked perfectly, the 4 of us were very happy. With new chef and waiting staff we were very very impressed. So many cafes/restaurants in the belconnen area serve up mediocre food it was a pleasure to go to Ellacure

When I first started coming here (2011) it was one of my favourite places to eat - great service and food. Returning in April for a special occasion was a mistake. We were served by an apathetic waitress who forgot half our order. The lamb shank main was mediocre for the price. If you are going to charge restaurant prices,... More
