“Northside's hidden treasure - better than some so called '5 star' restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The title may surprise you. Yes it's a big call but having experienced excellent cooking AND service, Ellacure is as good as you will get anywhere.

The menu, while limited, is excellent and has something that will suit just about everyone, The food is tasty and satisfying. The portions are just right - not too large or small.

Service is unobtrusive, wait staff were knowledgeable and very friendly.

Pricing is in the mid range - under $70 per head for a 3 course meal excluding alcohol (Dec 2012)

The overall Ellacure experience is excellent. It's to combination of good food, wine and service that makes it one of the best restaurants in Canberra.

Will be back there again without doubt.

“Deservedly popular.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The food here is good, the service friendly and fun. The location is abit out of the way near the Institute of Sport but there is plenty of free parking.

“One of my favourites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I love this place. The service is always fantastic - wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The food is always great - can't fault it. The atmosphere is great - there is dining inside or out. I've been several times for large group celebrations and meals come out at the same time and staff are always attentive to our needs. This is a regular venue of mine.

“best restaurant in canberra”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This place has consistently fantastic food, and always has exceptional service. The atmosphere is great and courses are always served to near perfect timing.
There seems to be a lot of 'hit and miss' at fine dining restuarants in Canberra and the combination of all the above things makes Ellacure consistently the best restuarant I've dined at in Canberra.

“Great food, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Met friends at this restaurant. We were greeted by friendly wait staff with great sense of humour! Our table was on the verandah but there was sufficient heating to keep us warm. Food was delicious and just right size servings - really enjoyed eating here - would certainly recommend to others and return ourselves.
