Reliably good food, well-prepared and fresh. Omelets and hamburgers are unbeatable and the servers somehow manage to do everything with a warm smile. It's a great neighborhood place. On my first visit 20 years ago, a casually-attired bridal party were having a celebratory lunch in...More

In the late 1970s and early '80s I used to visit NYC (before I moved here) and I often ate at the Elephant & Castle on Prince Street. To me it was the epitome of a pleasant, modest, downtown restaurant: friendly and sophisticated, not trendy...More

Never underestimate simplicity! First off, the restaurant is tiny. Don't bring extra bags or packages! Make no mistake, Maria, the manager runs this place so well seating just seemed like it was never an issue. She knows what she is doing and is lovely as...More

Burgers and chicken sandwich well prepared and tasty but too expensive for eating just sandwiches! We were 8 and spent 140 usd without any drink! Place is very nice and warm but there are others also like this with more affordable prices!

Read the very positive reviews for this very unassuming little place and decided to have brunch here. We were not disappointed the food was creative and delicious! It is obviously very popular as the queue was out of the door when we left! Lovely atmosphere...More

The Ink Pad website highly recommended Elephant & Castle, so we decided to try it. This is a comfortable place that welcomes neighbors and out-of-towners. The service was friendly and attentive despite how busy they were. The champagne cocktails were fresh and delicious. We were...More

We were told by friends to visit this place. Small, long railroad type interior, quiet and dark atmosphere, with a great menu full of light, hearty meals. A fantastic coffee to complete a nice dinner without the noise, the hustle and the extortionist prices of...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
