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.

Large menu. The dishes we ordered were competently prepared and delicious. However this appears to be a chain, and as such, the food is a bit formulistic and not special.

Delicious spinach-dressed Digby scallops combined with classic Greek salad and my wife's mousaka made this a dining experience to remember! The bonus was the great pleasure of sharing world travel experiences with a true Kiwi, Jen, since we toured New Zealand in February of this year. Jen was quite engaging in describing her various base locations in Japan, New Zealand... More

Ela Taverna has three locations and this was my most recent stop. It is a good size location with friendly and helpful staff. The food is great and there is a good variety of Greek/Mediterranean fare. It is best to go there with an appetite but a meal can be tailored to your appropriate proportion.

This was by far one of the nicer stops on our Atlantic tour. Great decor, great service, and the food was DELICIOUS!!! Everything from the bread dipped in olive oil and lemon to the feta and red pepper dip, the spanikopita, the stuffed red peppers, the dolmades, etc , etc. was fantastic. We left so stuffed we couldn't even try... More

Always a great place to eat. The food has always been good and the service superb. The only downside is the heavy chairs that are very noisy when you sit down or have to get up. Otherwise they get an A+ from me.
