Went to Elba with several friends who were visiting from abroad. While I heard much about the place, reality superceded it by far-- our night was just delightful! We sat, 3 of us, outside for dinner, after a first round of drinks on the bar. The specialty cocktails were original and perfectly made. The starters (tampora vegies, tuna tartar, and... More

I got to this restaurant after hearing rumors from friends that Elba has tasty dishes and the value for money is very good. We were 8 friends celebrating our birthday tradition of eating together in a new restaurant and this time it was my birthday. I ordered the Fillet Lavrak(seabass), which was superb! I like fish and it's very difficult... More

We came @ Saturday 16:00 to eat burgers the ambient in the place is very good and relaxing. The elba burger is good, the other one a little bit less - was too salty. Generally both were heavily spiced which affected the ability to really taste the meat. Burgers were over-expensive overall - not a good value for money

Unprofessional forgetful service wine arrived at the end of the first course after reminders. 3 out of 4 dishes inedible. Half a year ago it was excellent. Now to be avoided. Go to McDonald's for better food.

Elba's food is both delicious and beautifully presented. I recently had the opportunity to eat there with my family (all adults) and found it one of the best cuisine experiences in recent memory. I had the Sicilian Pasta and it was terrific, as was the fish pan dish my husband ordered.

Had the pleasure of dining multiple times at Elba. The food is great and the atmosphere is vibrant and pleasant. I liked the most - the Sicilian pasta (a bit spicy with a nice twist), the fish-balls Pasta, the hamburgers, the burekas.

I was invited by a friend who raved about the food in Elba and I'm glad he introduced me to it. We were greeted by a smiling host and the service was superb throughout. Our waiter recommended the spicy tuna with zucchini which was the special of the day and was so divine that I'm thinking about going back just... More

I went there like a month ago and food was expensive, small dishes and the flavor was nothing special. I decided to give a second try as they are always appearing in my fb page with 10,000 likes I said, maybe it was a bad night... This time, it was worst, the service was really bad. The waiter forgot everything... More

We've visited Elba on a Friday afternoon. The place is small, so you must have a reservation. We set inside. Beware – the restaurant is located on a busy road, so the outside tables could be horrible. Long story short – we've enjoyed everything. Food was great. Original, delicious dished accompanied by good service. Recommended.
