The restaurant is a very romantic setting, cosy and calm. The food was a tad expensive however it was well worth it. The cucumber salad was a tasty, healthy option, with interesting, yet classic flavours. The tomato meatball pasta was a little bit simple, not amazing but cooked well. The meal enjoyed most was the quinoa balls, cous cous, chutney... More

Unusual kitchen. Recommended for those who seek for, fish, vegetarian an even vegan courses (but you can find also few meet dishes) in reasonable price. A real Tel Avivan experiment.

Very nice place for a quiet dinner. We sat a bit inside. It was cold that day but they had those heating things and one of those was right behind me, so it was nice and warm there. I had noticed this dish called Shakshuk almost everywhere in Tel Aviv so wanted to try it. The one I got here... More

We enjoyed a lunch at this very popular restaurant. The wine and food were both delicious, the atmosphere was lively and friendly and the prices were reasonable. The fish with tomato and capers was outstanding.

We spent at orna & ella New Year's Eve and we loved it. Food is fresh, local, simple and tasteful. Staff is super nice. A Tel Aviv classic, no wonder it has been open (and full) for 25 years!

The five of us had a wonderful dinner at Orna & Ella for New Year's. We ordered three starters, five entrees, and three desserts - plus wine - and each dish was creative and delicious. The staff was attentive, professional and welcoming - and the restaurant was packed for a busy night. We highly recommend this restaurant.

I've been back to Orna & Ella for a second visit - still remembered it from my visit 2 years ago... there is something so nice about the atmosphere there and they have a small but special menu... I was very happy this time with my butternut tortellini and a glass of wine. The dessert was of enormous size in... More

Orna and Ella is the name of the restaurant but these are also the names of the 2 founders of the place. Its a classic styled pretty restaurant with excellent service. Very recommended.
