Always enjoyable to dine at Bistro Elba
Food is great and staff are wonderful and attentive
Food is amazing!! Such a lovely lunch venue. It's one of our favorites in Sorrento for a special lunch/dinner or work lunch.
Great way to end lockdown !!!!
Good food and service. Look forward to returning in the near future.
Second time in the past week we have been here. Great quality food, very relaxed yet attentive staff, great wine and music also perfect. Very highly recommended for a nice dinner. Good value for what you get.
Never had a bad meal and last night was no exception. Our favorite local !
We love this bistro, the food is amazing, the potatoes are the best I have ever had, YUM. Very friendly service, we drive from Melbourne especially to visit for lunch.
The Rib Eye was perfectly cooked, we shared this dish with an entre each. I had the prawn entre and would have liked a slice of bread and less prawn heads on the plate but the flavours were well balanced. Our table was comfortable, warm and quiet. Covid management is good. We are locals and will be back again and again. For better dining in Sorrento Elba is the best.
The food, service and ambiance were perfect. I consider myself an oysters officianado and they were excellent 💗
This is one of the best restaurants in Victoria. Food and service are excellent and consistent. The wine list is also excellent.
Great service and many choices on the menu that makes it difficult to choose. We’ll be back again soon.
I dine in monthly for business meetings. The food is great and the service is excellent.
An expensive night but impressive food - loved the Double baked cheese soufflé as an entrée and superb oysters. Not cheap but worth every penny!
Also loved the Pithivier Forestier - beautifully baked; a sensational course for a vegetarian along with the perfect Crème Brule for desert.
Considering the extremely high cost - expected this to be a 5-star evening in every regard.
A pity the service, which was surprisingly slow throughout the evening, didn't match the quality of the food or wine.
We think it has about the best dining in Sorrento right now.
Always a wonderful experience. Thankyou Bistro Elba
Have been there many times since they opened.
The food has been consistent, high quality and very good value for money.
The wine selection is exceptional.
Best service on the Peninsula. Just a wonderful place to dine.
Bistro Elba never disappoints. Yet another exquisite meal at one of my favourite eateries on the entire Peninsula. Delicious food, a beautiful atmosphere and delightful staff and service make it an experience not to be missed. I couldn't recommend it enough!
I had oysters and duckling which was superb.
My husband had terrine and swordfish. He did not like the sauce under the swordfish.
The creme brûlée was superb.
The Bistro ambience was just what we expected.
The service from the young lady was exceptional.
Meals were prompt and well presented.
Great atmosphere, fabulous food, fun cocktails and beer in an intimate setting. Full house but not over crowded. Little gem in the heart of Sorrento.
One of the best in Sorrento, for a nice meal with family and friends.
Excellent as always. Great food, great wine, faultless service.
We booked for 12:30 lunch. We were given a quiet corner table at the rear with a view of the garden. My wife opted for the fixed price menu and had an excellent chicken pate followed by swordfish on a leek base. All well presented and good portions and very well priced at $45. I opted for the beef cheek main which was tasty and tender. Finished off with the creme caramel. The wait staff were attentive and engaged and the ambience and warmth of the place completed a very fine dining experience.
Always enjoy Bistro Elba!
The food was amazing! Definitely a go to from now on!!
Excellent - as always.
Food was delicious- casual lunch and the staff were friendly and helpful. Recommend the chicken pie and the steak too!
Kind and friendly staff. Beef cheeks, steak, chicken pie were delicious! Fish dishes were a bit flat. A lovely night out.
Our second time here and becoming our favourite restaurant of all time!!!
Everything is outstanding, from the service to the fit-out, but obviously food and wine list are why we come back here!!
Grazie mille and see you next time we’re back in Sorrento
Delicious food. Great service.
Nice lunch in Sorrento
Had been wanting to try Bistro Elba for ages and were not disappointed. Specials menu was delicious and excellent value.
Consistently awesome food, each and every time.
Following all of the hype and recommendations, I was disappointed by the whole experience, particularly the average tepid food, and the insincere, 'wooden' service from Meredith.
As a local, I can say one of the best restaurants in Sorrento. Food is fresh and local. Atmosphere is gorgeous - recommend to everyone!!
The food was delicious and beautifully presented.
Enjoyed the steak tartare and it was comparable to its counterparts in Europe, however I would have preferred the egg mixed in and with the option of a little more horseradish.
A very nice dining experience. Waiters were very friendly and did not hassle you in relation taking your order too quickly.
