Tonight was the first night of our stay in Ella so we picked this restaurant at random because of their clear signage and what a good choice it was. The quantity of food was amazing and everyone elses meals looked great too.

We came here once for a drink and once for lunch, both after morning walks. Nice quiet atmosphere but with good people watching on the road. The banana milkshake is good! For lunch we shared tomato soup, bacon pizza and fries which were all nice. Would recommend!

The roti's were good, the service was ok, but not great. However the Fries we ordered were more expensive than the beer or roti! 550 alone.

Food was good and service was good and the prices were reasonable. Ordered fish and chips, fish burger and drinks. The staff were really helpful and we had a relaxing evening. Try to get the couches if you could go early as the place can get crowded for dinner.

This place is a restaurant and pub. They have free WiFi but it's extremely slow. The food and drinks were really good. The restaurant is really busy during the night and it's a bit difficult trying to get a table. The do have cocktails and wine bottles in addition to western food & coffee.

The food and coffee were okay and the service was a little slow, but the servers were very friendly. It is a nice place to do some planning and just hangout.

Very dry and bland tasting chicken curry. I understand that it was the same for the beef curry. The food arrived within five minutes which leads me to believe that it was preprepared... this also explains the texture and taste of the food. The atmosphere, service or prices were not enough to make up for the poor quality of the... More

We've come here to eat dinner, got menus really fast and then our ordered dishes too. We've had chicken pizza and pancake bananas for desert , both were really good and served super fast from friendly waiters. The prices were reasonable and big dishes. Would definitely come back for more.
