Ele & Ela finally opened a day before we were leaving so were lucky to be able to dine here. Dinner here was unbelievably delicious. I highly recommend the lamb shank. It’s definitely worth coming here for dessert too! Great service and lovely atmosphere.

Sorry I cannot answer this question. I know during the off season they do not open for lunch and I seem to recall that during March and April they were closed one evening each week.
