Brilliant food. Service was patchy. Starters came too quickly and mains took too long. Servers were very pleasant though. I would go back again.
It was a very nice experience. Very enjoyable and recomendable. 😊
A twist on Mexican gourmet food, and as always amazing staff
Absolutely stunning meal.
The service was really excellent. The staff were attentive and really eager to help with menu choices and share their favourite dishes as well as make recommendations based on flavours you, the diner, like and dislike. However, I was expecting a bit more. The tortillas were amazing but the pulpo was fried to the nth degree (tough despite the server saying it was going to be so tender), the pico de gallo was so so. The tamal was lovely (amazing coming from me considering I don't like tamal). But nothing blew me away at all. Maybe for London this is good value for money and it's probably the best Mexican food you can get in the UK but the standards are pretty low. I think Ella Canta has done and can do better.
Brilliant food and staff, highly recommend. Pre theatre menu was great value.
Amazing food especially with the brunch offer. Really friendly and efficient staff. Will definitely be back!
The restaurant is beautiful.
I expected more from the service and the food.
Service was painfully slow. Even when we mentioned this, it didn’t get better.
Food was nice but nothing special. For the price I wanted it to be amazing. Sadly it wasn’t.
I really wanted to love this place but I don’t.
Tasting menu was not as good as a la carte. Tasting menus normally tend to reflect best dishes. Service a little slow seemed like they were having an off day.
Fantastic evening meal at Ella Canta. Celebrated my boyfriends 30th and the food was incredible. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Highly recommend
Incredible food! Servers recommended dishes to our tastes and drinks to go with it. Mexican food done right, which is difficult to find in London!
Seriously one of the best meals we have ever had. We will go back - my wife insists! We dined a la carte and every dish we had was just a wonderful experience. Wonderfully attentive and helpful staff.
We just loved it!
Friendly, informed staff who obviously loved the food as well.
An amazing experience in a beautiful restaurant. Will be back!!
The service was incredible and the food was delicious.
Great food and outstanding service from Emmanuel. We will be back!
Really good service, lovely atmosphere and super food
Went there with hight expectation. Some of the food was really lack of taste, some confusion with the right wine - wrong bottle first, next one with a cork and the right one almost to be poured in the glasses with the cork-wine. Asked by the waiter if we want more homemade chips with guacamole - but then they charged on the bill. Same with extra tortillas. Leaves a strange feeling. Positive: birthday cake on the house, generally friendly staff.
There was a very noisy group next to us. Made it impossible to talk in the whole section. Maybe a bit of sealing soundproofing can help, you need some mix sometimes between having buzz and it becoming too much...
Great food and drinks, very friendly staff and fun atmosphere. Staff seemed to enjoy themselves but were very professional and attentive at all times. We received a small suprise cake slice, which was a very nice gesture as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We will be back!
Service very disjointed. Music way too loud, hard to converse with dinner companion. Food very disappointing - all style over substance. Not remotely 1* Michelin, am very confused why it attained this rating.
Service for the drinks was too slow
Food was tasty but octopus and pork options too small
Great experience, went for my mums birthday and food was amazing. We had a little issue with the ‘unlimited margaritas’ as we had only been given two in the 90 minutes allotted to them. However they made up for this by extending it and bringing them more frequently after that
Saw this restaurant when the contestants on Masterchef visited to do a service in the kitchen and loved the look of the food. I generally find Mexican food in the UK disappointing but this was absolutely wonderful. The staff are knowledgeable and really friendly. They gave us an evening to remember. The Tres Leches (3 milks) cake is worth going back for alone. Stunning. I will be returning for sure next time I am in London.
I have been twice to Ella Canta and tried many things on the menu and I have mixed feelings. First- the food is beautifully presented, however overall just falls flat. The stand-out is definitely the black bean soup with fois gras..and the beef cheek, but only when they give you the black hot sauce. All the dishes I have tried are nice, but honestly lack the depth that Mexican food should have...I lived in the US for years and was spoilt with the quality of Mexican food and in comparison, Ella Canta just doesn't quite hit the mark. I REALLY wanted to love it..and so did my husband who is quite easy to please..but he was also was a bit underwhelmed.
Final positive notes, the staff are lovely and attentive and margaritas are great. Would return for a drink and a snack..but the search for really good Mexican in London continues..
Amazing food. I loved absolutely everything. The decor, the staff is very friendly and they take the time to explain everything in the menu. I strongly recommend it.
Great food despite the signature dish wasn’t good as the rest (a 38 Pound steak with tortillas - pretty average and hard as a rock)
Good experience, food good. Ambience a little loud but not unpleasant. Service very good.
loved this restaurant - great food, excellent service & wonderful atmosphere.
Not easy to hear your conversation though !
Absolutely delicious food, could not fault the food at all. Service was brilliant although the bottomless drinks are very small and not very strong.
Food was superb, the service is amazing and the margaritas are great.
Friends in town from the USA who have ties to Mexico. We had an incredible birthday brunch experience. The food was delicious & the mains were big portions. The drinks were fantastic as well & the DJ played perfect music to add to the ambiance. The service was impeccable as well.
Really good restaurant, had my first date there. It earned me a few points
Fabulous and exquisite on every level- the food, the ambience and the staff and service - an accolade to them all...a memory making experience I will cherish and will definitely be back again soon
Cramped table but amazing food
Romantic dinner with my wife on the 9th May was ruined by the table I was given.
First off the food was amazing we both had the tasting menu and felt the cost of it was very reasonable.
But her in lies my problem, my bill was over £200 which is not bad for a top end restaurant. But I would not expect to be at a table where the next table is less than 6 inches away ( might of well shared a table)
I’m not joking but it was that close that when the head waitress was explains the menu to the other table her backside was literally in my wife’s face
Most of the tables are well spread out and befitting of the restraint but I was given one in a line of 3 which looked like an after thought. Far too close together right buy the kitchen exit and far less superior to the other tables.
The restarting was not busy as it was early evening so there was no need for it.
So to sum up
Amazing food but the whole experience ruined by the table given to me (honestly I’ve never been on a table that close to another one in any restaurant)
This is a very tasty and authentic high and Mexican restaurant. The food was very delicious. The service was excellent. This is expensive Mexican food but worth it. I highly recommend this dining experience.
Excellent place to dine creative Mexican food in style. Great service!
Lovely place, the Italian Lady on reception was extra nice and friendly and made us all feel very welcome, the waiting staff were very good and the food was delicious
A great experience, the food was great (all chocolate lovers need to try the chocolate sauce with churros), the staff helpful and engaging and the atmosphere just right, quiet and roomy.
We tried the Cinco de Mayo 3-course tasting menu and it was excellent. The cocktail pairings were great as well. The staff was very friendly and made sure to address all our needs. Will definitely be back here for dinner or brunch.
Fairly overpriced restaurant with rather modest food selection. Would not come back.
