Time Out Says
And now, there is a new laid-back restaurant to add to the list of weekday supper or weekend dining options.
The interior of Ella’s Eatery is small, but the décor has a jungle feel thanks to some green foliage hanging from the ceiling, but is quite eclectic with mismatched chairs and tables.
We head outside where a small terrace houses a handful of tables alongside the edge of the marina.
Expect a variety of cuisines throughout the week, including Western and Middle Eastern breakfasts, salads, grill items, snacks, burgers and pizzas.
We go for a pizza called The Spicy One and aren’t disappointed. The crust is thin, as we like it, and the toppings (spicy chicken chorizo, caramelised red onions, tomato, mozzarella, rocket and chilli) are plentiful.
The salmon fishcake is also a must-try, though we suggest you avoid tucking too heartily into the warm bread from the bread bowl before it arrives, as it’s quite a substantial portion size.
Crispy breadcrumbs house flaky salmon and mashed potato with just the right amount of herbs and seasoning.
The kids’ menu is equally as brilliant, with dishes humorously named to reflect what most children say when they are forced to sit at the dining table for too long.
Our gang all opt for the I Don’t Want That, which is burger and chips, and follow up with I Don’t Like It Here (ice cream). It could be that the comedy value of the names puts them in a good mood, but each one clears their plate.
The chilled-out vibe and serene waterside setting make this a cute new spot for an after work supper, or to while away a Friday afternoon with the family with waterside views.
