Pity that the restaurant is in a hotel!
The ambiance will. E better in a real restaurant
It was amazing beyond expectations. Staff was friendly, the food came quick and the ambience was nice.
However, I’d like to remark the quality of food. It was lovely presented and surprisingly, has THE real Mexican flavor. You can tell all the ingredients are either brought from Mexico or made at the restarurant following the exact recepies. The only bad thing about it is that portions are a bit small.
Tasteless food made without love
How can you get seafood rice to taste of nothing?
Really lovely contemporary restaurant. From the moment you walk in you are greeted by friendly and helpful staff. It had a lovely ambience and the music had a nice relaxed vibe. We ordered the pre theatre symphony menu, which included a yummy cocktail. The food was colourful, artistic, tasted great and a nice little kick. Fish in banana leaf was so white and fresh. The churros with caramel sauce must be tried. Hope to go back and try more of their cuisine. Loved the experience
We experienced the brunch tasting menu. Food did not have flavor, for Mexican cuisine the sauces were very flat and execution not correct. The different flavors of Margaritas were nice but have had much better. Would not recommend this restaurant.
The service was very poor. We waited for our drinks for 20 mins. Food slow in coming and rather stingy on the extra tortillas we ordered. Three came and we were a party of four.
Excellent display of what authentic and refined Mexican cuisine is
I would only recommend if you can comfortably afford the a la carte and go when it’s busy, in the evening perhaps. Our Sunday brunch was unfortunately very quiet. Food was ok, but certainly upstaged by the decor. Our waitresses were absolutely wonderful. Our first cocktail which was included with the brunch deal did not arrive until a good 30 minutes after we had ordered. This was very poor IMO. My overall impression after high hopes was of disappointment.
I love Ella Canta. I have to say this time I was a little disappointed. I looked like maybe there was staff shortage and we had to wait long for our margaritas. Te starter was lovely, however the main course and dessert were not as tasty as few weeks ago, there for I am worried about how consistent the food and service be in the future. I ordered coconut flan last time and it was heaven, however, this time I could barely taste coconut. I hope to give you another chance and be as impressed as I was the first time I visited
Nice place, good food and better service. Music too loud and ambient too noisy for just a restaurant. There were moments that it reminded me to a club instead of a restaurant, due to the effort I had to do to talk with the people on my table. I would recommend it but the noisy and loudy music is one development area.
Amazing food and drink , great quality , large portions of very delicately flavoured food .
Margaritas just fantastic lots of different flavours . Knowledgable staff . Will 100% go back and will recommend !
Mediocre hotel restaurant.They advertise that there is a DJ but we did not see one and there were not enough people to liven up the restaurant. Our server was excellent but other members of staff were rude. You would expect a mexican restaurant to have the best margaritas in town but they were below average to say the least. Would not recommend.
I have already notified opentable about this, but the way the booking page is layed out is very confusing & misleading. When you click on "menu" at the top of "a la carte" section it clearly states "2 courses for £35 or 3 courses for £39 including a cocktail". There is nothing else anywhere on the page to suggest this offer is only available at certain times.
We were all under the impression therefore that we could get the set menu, but when we arrived we were told this was not available for us. The bill was a lot more than what we initially budgeted for, which did spoil my evening somewhat.
Having said that the food is delicious & well presented. The waiters / waitresses very friendly & make good recommendations if you are not sure what to order.
I haven't been to such a lovely restaurant in a while. The entire team made us feel like home and they explained everything, from food to cocktail names and mexican history. We will definetely come back.
First visit for a meal. Food is excellent, you need to know how to order however.
I went for my girlfriends birthday and it was an amazing dinner. All the staff new a lot of history and reasoning behind each dish and the chef, and they even brought out a cake for my girlfriend free!
I would say this is a special occasion or date restaurant but I would say it is worth every penny.
Heard good things about this restaurant so visited it with my boyfriend for our anniversary. The food was awesome, cocktails great and we loved the authentic Mexican music amd vibe to the restaurant. We’ll definitely be back.
Service and food was excellent, waiters made the evening very enjoyable. 5*
Good food ,very smile staff , cristina the waitress was amazing , the cocktails are amazing . Will recommend for sure .
Poor value and pretty average food
Lovely experience. Ambiance, artistic menu and cocktails, waiting staff nicely dressed and service superb. I liked very much.
Went here for Valentine's day as a treat, and it was really lovely. Felt really well looked after by all the staff, and we were talked through the menu. The food was really original and exciting (we had the Valentine's set menu). My only slight criticism would be that the two meat dishes weren't piping hot, but they were still delicious. Would definitely come here again and would certainly recommend.
It was very good, we ordered lots of things to share and it was quite a good choose.
It's a restaurant with a lot of developed potential and a great staff. Very rich and stimulating food. Great touch on behalf of the team for bringing a birthday cake for my lady to offer an extra personalized service. Nevertheless, the service was a little bit slow. I booked a table for 22:00 and we waited until 22:35 for a table. The time between courses was a bit too long, we finished dinner at almost 1:00
We had a very great experience. Higlhly recommended.
I’m from Mexico and this was an amazing culinary experience abroad, just need a better wine selection
Loved it. Perfect for a date night!! The Pinot noir was honestly the best wine I’ve had in a long time and food was amazing, we had the valentines taster menu. Would have liked the option of a wine flight.
Lovely Mexican food in a spacious setting. Excellent service, great preparation and presentation - definitely looking forward to our next visit!
A truly memorable menu. I had ordered the Valentine's tasting menu for me and my partner and it did not disappoint. Full of flavour and beautifully presented. The cocktails were deliciously exotic and went down a treat - they even offered an alternative when my partner made a sour face at his choice, saying they wanted to make sure he was happy, but he did actually love every sip. The waiters were extremely attentive and took the time to explain every plate we received and cater to our needs, we were even treated to a couple of special surprise menu options as a complimentary offer from the chef. The atmosphere was delightful, calm and elegantly romantic. Would highly recommend Ella Canta - took Mexican food to another dimension!
The food was phenomenal, but also just as importantly, the staff and service provided was amazing. Very friendly, extremely welcoming and explained the food and what they would recommend based on our personal preferences. The drinks were incredible and there was a very relaxed chilled out vibe rather than the usual quick two hour slot rush that I usually feel when dining. Would 1000% go again!
Pretty low quality food and drinks. Surprised that people gave such good reviews. Food was inedible. Drinks okayish. Not returning.
Amazing. Great staff.
Best service ever .nunzio is the best waiter that we had met in the city
Beautiful dining room. Great margaritas. Good food. Very helpful waiter. Note with the brunch drink offer everyone at the table has to do the same.
Would go back
I cannot stress enough how amazing this place is. Food is exceptional and service far exceeded my expectations.
Despite being one of of favourites places last night the services was horrible.
A very special experience. We turned up slightly after “last orders” due to a theatre delay, and we were still warmly welcomed and looked after in an exceptionally friendly and professional manner. The staff at Ella Canta that evening were in a class of their own. The food was fresh, perfectly spiced, and delicious; knowledgeable recommendations meant we enjoyed every course. Will be back!
This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in Europe. And if it was in Mexico it would be o. The top list as well.
Outstanding service, unique flavors , always an unforgettable experience 👍
super service and food. Andrea Navarro did a great work, I felt back in Mexico. Thanks a lot.
