Ella Café & Lounge has become a firm favourite with locals for its great food and service. It also has a great private dining room upstairs that is the perfect central location for a celebration.

I’ve had the pleasure of dining at Ella numerous times and felt that it’s about time I show my appreciation. Fantastic food, friendly staff and great service. Last night I began with the Waiheke oysters served with shallot vinaigrette – which I’m happy to say seem to frequent the specials board a lot. As a main I enjoyed a better than amazing duck ragout paired with a lovely Lamont Pinot.Thanks so much Ella! Astonishing!Looking forward to trying the brunch menu with my wife this weekend.

Brunch On Sunday Brilliant strong coffee, polite staff and delicious French toast! My friend had the mushrooms they were also really tasty. Nice to have such a chilled place with prompt service- not the usual bustling/noisy cafe….

Intimate little Ella serves deliciously simple but well-thought out bistro food. Favourite dishes for me are the succulent roast pork belly and one the best steaks in Auckland (juicy skirt steak marinated in olive oil and rosemary and cooked on a hot hot grill). Great place for a date or romantic dinner without pretention. Friendly service and great little wine list.

Perfect for a quiet date with someone special.
