Our hopes were high when we went to this restaurant for lunch. The bad acoustics hit us first. Very annoying reverberating sound, but hopes remained high for the food. Nope. The food arrived with dry lamb and extremely overdone roasted potatoes. The cutlery was also dirty so we grabbed some clean from a nearby table since our server never returned... More

Sometimes, in a restaurant, you find something you like and, although you would like to explore the menu, you order the same thing every time. For me, at Ela!, that thing is the Meatball 'seftalia'. I love it. And love the quiet atmosphere (so many restaurants are just diners trying to out-shout eat other, or out-shout the music. Ela! is... More

My partner and I came at 5:30 and we're seated immediately. Decor was lovely, little candles, not too dim. Not too bright, it actually feels like you really could be in Greece. The server, Edward, (mathew heehee) was very friendly, helpful. Got our order perfect. Couldn't have had better service. We had the risotto balls to start- amaze-balls! And shared... More

We were visiting Halifax from Ann Arbor, Mi, to see our daughter. We thought we would give Ela a try. The service is excellent. The Greek food is outstanding. We will definitely come back.

I recommend this place if you're wanting a different... More

What a pleasant surprise! We weren't sure where we wanted to eat and decided to check out the Greek Restaurant. Ryan, our waiter, was very friendly & helpful describing the various dishes on the menu. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting really good food in a pleasant atmosphere.

This was a family event (of 9 people) where my wife and I and our two sons, and my sister, her husband and two kids were taking our mother out to dinner. This was on a Sunday, at almost 6:00pm, so The restsurant was practically empty. The girl that seated us also took our drink orders, so I assumed she... More

We eat here regularly and love it. The food is consistent and excellent. The atmosphere is great and the restaurant is very well maintained. Lots of extra toiletries in the washroom that are not usually supplied. At lunch I usually get the souvlaki pita which is awesome and reasonably priced.
