ela! has very authentic Greek food, which they serve beautifully and in copious amounts. My wife and I ate here for supper and we love real Greek, so were thrilled with spanikopita for a start which we shared (2 large triangles) and the her moussaka and my lamb slouvaki came and were both delicious. Sides of a large Greek salad... More

Whenever we have a special birthday, anniversary or celebration, our entire family chooses Ela as our restaurant of choice. The vegetarian moussaka is my number one choice and my husband and children usually opt for a lamb dish. Even my young grandson enjoyed his meal of scallops. He cleaned his plate. Desserts are soooo good. Baklava is the main favourite... More

At first we drove by the place because the OPEN sign was not lit. Once inside, the atmosphere was friendly. My husband and I ordered different dishes but turned out to be the same except his had a stuffed pepper, too. Both were delicious - the best mousaka I ever had.

We planned to take my mother-in-law to a different restaurant, but they were closed on Sunday. So we stopped here. What a nice surprise. The interior is serene and peaceful (not incredibly loud customers or overwhelming music. The food and service were delicious. Dad, who likes plainer fare than the rest of us, was happy with a nice fish dinner.... More

My wife and I always stay in downtown Halifax when we visit the area primarily for the many upper scale restaurants. However, due to family events we stayed at the Hampton Inn at Dartmouth Crossing. We wanted a nice dinner-date on Saturday evening but didn't want to go to downtown Halifax for reasons of driving after dinner, traffic etc. I... More

I love Greek food. Not everyone does, but if you think you don't you have not tried ela!'s. You can have traditional Greek offerings, or not so traditional. The food is sumptuous & you do not leave without being full. The atmosphere would remind you of a far off exotic destination that in the back of your mind you are... More

We had a lovely evening, great conversation, the service was great we where never rushed. The place was a little Lou's at the beginning but calmed right down, which was lovely. The food was o.k., nothing that was very exciting, but a very nice meal. A relaxing place to go
