Local Veggie/Vegan /normal restaurant

I had the best tortellini ever. Filled with butternut squash. My companion wolfed down spaghetti with meatballs with a delicious local wine. Went back twice. Yum yum!

Being the only strict vegan traveling with my carnivore family can be a challenge. Orna and Ella has literally something for everyone. Great wine list More than one vegan option.

It's right there on Shenkin - the place is small and lovely, the staff are super friendly and make you feel at home, the food (veg) is delicious and makes you want to live there for ever once you take your first bite. Loved it - hope to be able to go back again.

We reserved places for family and friends at this restaurant and realized that this might be one of the best restaurants we came to know in Tel-Aviv ! The welcome ceremony was very nice and friendly and we felt great! Instantly, there was a very nice waiter which helped us right away with the menu and the order started to... More

We went to Orna&Ella's place to celebrate my fiend's birthday over dinner. It was the best choice we could make! Everything was delicious, especially the sweet potato pancakes, the cauliflower siniya and the homemade couscous... Also, I liked that this place has a very friendly menu- there are several vegeterian, vegan and gluten-free dishes (all marked in the menu). Don't... More

Very fresh, locally sourced food, prepared expertly in dishes that are out of the ordinary in many ways. Reasonably priced. Fast, attentive service. Very nice wines. Try Tulip white for a semi-dry, flinty flavor. On the great shopping street for women's clothing and shoes--probably one of the best in terms of density of shops and diversity. No sidewalk tables. Inside... More

We came in with high expectations, but we're let down completely. Let's start by the fact that we did book a table ahead of time. When entering the restaurant we were told our table was not yet ready, and were placed outside in the smoking area to wait 'a few minutes' until our table was ready. 45 min later, we... More

This place has very nice food. A friend of mine suggested to me and when I went there I was happy to wait because we had a nice lunch with nice food. I definitely will go back again when I am in Tel Aviv but this time I will call before and book a table.

Cool restaurant-bar place on a famous Sheinkin street.. the yam-patties with yogurt are soooo tasty, as starters or as dessert(!) too. An almost all-male staff- decide for yourself if that works or does not..

Orna & Ella is a very cute restaurant. It's hype and trendy, and laid-back at the same time - 100% Tel Aviv vibe. The excellent Israeli film "The Bubble" was filmed in the premises. There is not so much choice in terms of food and the portions are quite small but all is very good. A lot of dishes target... More
