“Great food.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Had the macaroni cheese, it was awesome loved every bite. Coffee was excellent as well.

Service could have been a little bit better, waitress seemed like she didn't want to be there. When I paid at the end they seemed preoccupied with other things (it was busy).

Good food and drinks, just needed a better personal touch from the staff.

“Wonderful food, fantastic service”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This restaurant is definitely worth the quick trip out of the city to Lyall Bay. We have been here several times now with both big groups and intimate dinner for two. The service is excellent (friendly and professional) and the food was wonderful - on a par with our favourite Auckland restaurant Vinnies.

“Ordinary at best, unreliable at worst”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

It's an OK suburban cafe, except when they forget your order, which is - of course - your own fault. Not really worth a visit - more a contingency if others nearby aren't free.

“This is a lovely place for a meal!”

Went with a large family group. Meals were all delicious, and they all arrived quickly. Everyone in our group enjoyed their brunch, and the staff were very helpful.

“YUM”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Elements turns out to be one of my friends favorite cafes and there is good reason. They use loads of local and healthy ingredients and the food is excelent. Possibly the best breakfast I have ever had in Wellington. I also loved the fact that they were really happy to adapt to the children's picky tastes. All in all for two adults and three kids the meal was a good price and the food was top notch. I will return and I highly recommend it.
