Excellent Greek Food without going downtown

Love all the food choices.. a nice find in a business park. Food is Fresh and fast. They can accomodate large groups which we have done for a corporate event or intimate for two

Just come back from lunch here and very disappointed! To provide some balance the decor is really good so don't be put off by the location they have done a great job to create a great atmosphere and ambience! Service was polite. We had the shared pitta and dip to start which was good but very large and could probably... More

Decided to have some Greek food for lunch, so we dropped by Ela, The staff was very nice and attended to us every time, inside looked beautiful, and the food was good ''just good'' but not good enough for me to want to return again, I have nothing negative to say about the menu but I guess I was just...

Went on a Sunday dinner time with a party of six. The place looked quiet when we arrived. A table was pulled together and menus received, then that was it for 25 minutes. Our drink order arrived with mistakes which were corrected. Our dinner order took an additional 45 minutes to arrive during which time smaller tables who arrived later... More

i have taken many of my friends for lunch at this particular restaurant over the years and I have always been very happy with everything. Top notch!...until last Thursday. I told my friend what a wonderful Chicken Shawarma they had, so we both order it. My friend did not know what to expect, and said it was fine. The portions... More

Gosh, how could a place so great go downhill so quickly I will admit that I didnt say anything to the waitress as we were out with good friends and I didn't want to spoil the mood. I always order the Souvlaki here and I have a big appetite but can never finish. I was shocked when my plate arrived... More

My first visit was with a large group of friends. Many orders were placed and nobody had any problems with their choice. The place is quaint in size and well lit. It's very clean and bright with all the windows. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable with the menu. The portions are very fair and the quality of each meal... More

Let me start by saying that I have a big LOVE for Greek Food! I especially love Ela! but, due to the price of the food, I do not get to attend as regular as I would like. However, as I had not had Greek food in awhile, my mother and I decided to splurge and go here for dinner.... More

Lamb souvlaki... one of the best, I have had. I always look forward to ela! when visiting Halifax. Service was great, as usual.

Just had my third meal at ela! and it was one of the worst dining experiences I've had in a long time. I had eagerly ordered the lamb slouvaki, only to find the meat was mostly fat/gristle and completely RAW inside. Like, a deep pink that was cool to touch. Totally gross. I felt nauseous for about two hours after,... More
