Very nice restaurant one Main Street with good food and service. Excellent for drinks and dinner and we went there twice. Busy place and so may have to wait a bit as they don't take reservations.

I loved the environment of this cafe a lot. One of the popular among tourists. I enjoyed mixed fresh fruit juice here. You can also also free wifi. Definitely a cool place to spend some hours with friends or even alone to enjoy good food and time.

Tonight was the first night of our stay in Ella so we picked this restaurant at random because of their clear signage and what a good choice it was. The quantity of food was amazing and everyone elses meals looked great too.
