Nice food at very fair prizes. Especially the pizza was exceptional with a very thin pizza dough almost Italian style!

We ate one dinner with friends here and couldn’t have been more satisfied. Open air, pleasant environment with attentive service, reasonably priced. We totally over ordered - the delicious fish and chips was so large it could have easily fed two people; the pizza was...More

This place has a very simple menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner but no matter what time you visit, you will find something delicious and satisfying. The staff is not as friendly as other places but the service is very fast. I would definitely return.

Pleasantly surprised by this restaurant as I tend to avoid 'international' restaurants when I'm away. It was fairly quiet so we didn't have any problems with service, other than a lack of alcohol. We were informed as it's Independence Day they aren't allowed to sell...More

It was a busy Sunday afternoon which might explain the service that day. Although we were seated quickly, it took while to order and to receive the food. The restaurant is on two levels on the busiest commercial street in Ella. Free wifi is available...More

We had a pizza to go and it was very tasty. It was a thin, wood-fired pizza. Very tasty and fresh. They also served other food such as salads, desserts, etc.

Lovely place, if you sit upstairs more lively, and downstairs away from the hustle and bustle of the Main Street. We ordered food (pizza delicious) and a lion beer which came with an ice cold glass. Good customer service, very attentive waiter, and the front...More
