Had a very nice lunch at Bistro Elba with friends. Great food and wine and very friendly service. Portions were a little small and a little expensive but overall quite good.

We enjoyed an excellent meal, good choice on the menu, lovely ambience, fantastic service and the meal delicious. I’d have no hesitation in recommending the restaurant and do enjoy the quirky art, particularly the large painting by the entrance.
