My friend and I ordered three appetizers to share - the Greek salad, the trio dip, and the Greek flat bread. The salad was our least favourite. The flat bread was really enjoyable and the feta cheese, sub-dried tomato dip was our favourite. The three appetizers was too much for two people. The flat bread and feta cheese sub-dried tomato...

We found this restaurant completely by accident but we are so happy we did. It has wonderful food and service. Each time we go we always feel that we get the same high quality of food and service. It never feels busy even when the place is full. It has a wonderful selection of wines and drinks.

We have had lunch or dinner there half a dozen times, and each visit was delicious and the service was flawless. Mathew always takes great care to make all our meals perfect. This is absolutely the best Greek food I've had.

In our family, one adult and one child are adventurous eaters, while one adult and one child are fussy eaters. We came with no reservation, asked a lot of questions, and the young server did all she could to answer everything. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything we had, and there was plenty to share.

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.
