    Delicious and imaginatively exotic dishes (& cocktails) served by charmingly attentive but unobtrusive wait staff. This is a great restaurant that has got to be one of Darwin’s best. I’m confident Ella by Minoli would be a big hit in Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane where the competition is much fiercer.

    We enjoyed our evening dining here. On this occasion, we dined indoors because we didn't quite understand the options when booking via this app. We'd happily dine outdoors next time. Actually, wherever there is a table for 2, we'd happily take it. The staff are warm and welcoming and very helpful when needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the kangaroo tartare, eggplant moju and the tamarind chicken. Heavenly delicious! Flavours were amazing. The Tarot Grenache was a perfect match with our meal too. The menu offers lots of gluten-free options, which was very much appreciated. Please open a restaurant in Melbourne.

    The top restaurant in Darwin and probably one of my top 5 of all time. Wonderful elevated flavours across all dishes. Great service great simple decor that creates a kind of Bohemian cave of wonders. Great staff and you can see and Taste the passion in every mouthful and every bite. Well done to the team and being in town for work will become a regular for me.

    The service was excellent. The tables are mostly outdoor and the ambience was relaxed and casual. As for the food, the small plates we tried, the spiced lamb ribs and the pan rolled barramundi were very good. But the large plates we ordered, local prawns and the Green Bean were both too salty, so that the taste was dominated by the saltiness. The restaurant was quite full, so that we might have chosen the wrong large plates for our taste buds or it was really too salty.

    This restaurant did not disappoint. For anyone worried if it's too spicy, it is not. Just the right amount of spice but I'm sure you could ask for more if you wanted to.
