If we are looking for a place to go out for dinner - Cafe Eccell is usually at the top of our list! The wood fired pizza is an excellent choice and they have a friendly staff and offer some great local choices for beer and wine. This is a great place for large gatherings and family as well. I've...

Went here on Thanksgiving prior to an A&M Football game. Very crowded, as would be expected. I had the seafood enchiladas, and I would get them again. Excellent. The rest of our party ordered the Thanksgiving feast, which was just so-so. The portions were great, except the amount of turkey was marginal considering the $25 price. Some of the food... More

The environment is very nice decorated, the tables have wide space between them so the visitor feels really comfortable and the staff is really friendly and keen to help!

The gal at the hotel down the street called this a Mediterranean restaurant - not close. Very much more cozy inside that what I expected. Wide assortment of ethnic and American foods. Wait staff was very attentive. Food was ordered and delivered in a reasonable time. Tortilla soup was very good and different from what I expected (more ancho chili... More

They have a different happy hour every day. Monday is happy hour all day, so I had a margarita and an appetizer. Food was pretty good.

I loved the atmosphere & design of the restaurant. I had the Eccell BLT with avocado. The bread was great & it was a very filling sandwich. Everything tasted fresh. It was recommended that we try a tart for dessert so I'll have to come back again.

Thank Amy L
