Absolutely phenomenal experience. Highly recommended for a special occasion dinner. Only 11 diners were present in our seating, so we received ample attention from the waitstaff (including the lovely in-house sommelier). Very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive staff (without being intrusive) and the calibre of dishes on offer in both flavour and execution was second to none. I’ve eaten in world class establishments around the globe (Paris, New York, Tokyo) but this is possibly the best meal I’ve ever had. So thoughtfully crafted and passionately served - we’ll be back next season for sure!

One of the best dining experiences of my life! The food was divine. From the way the food is prepared, to the way nothing is wasted, to the way the meal is presented and the way the passion and enthusiasm of the staff was shared with me, all made this experience 12/10. Cannot recommend it enough. Worth every cent!

2 of the dishes in our degustation were a little heavy for the season, may have been better left for a winter menu rather than new autumn menu. They do catered for dietary requirements, however I would have expected this to be done a little better with advanced notice.

However this didn't spoil our view of the evening. The restaurant is intimate, and a great view of the kitchen from all tables. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Wonderful wine pairings (pour could have been more generous).

Depending on menu changes, we'll be back to give it a second run!

Congratulations to Nathan, Freya, and the team at Elska. The new premises are wonderful and the enhanced view of the kitchen and the addition of a sommelier have positively added to what was an already fantastic dining experience. The dishes are unique, creative and fresh and are a true culinary delight. Add to that the professionalism and friendliness of the front of house team and you have the ingredients for a wonderful night out - and that is exactly what they delivered. Elska is a must if you are looking for first class food, first class service and a truly memorable dining experience.
