We had a great time here! Tucked on the second floor with a nice vibe. We sat at the couches and enjoyed appetizers and smoked some hookah! We loved the low key vibes and the staff was very friendly. We came back for breakfast time...More

Beautiful new restaurant in Ella. Very spacious and nice atmosphere. They are a bit further down the main street with all the restaurants but they are worth the few more meters down. Their pizzas are as good as anywhere else in Europe!! The lovely crew...More

This was New and tasty and clean. But not what we were looking for for a true SL experience. However the food was lovely, service good but more expensive than the real SL. It’s not spicy and offers a range of cuisines.
