Absolutely loved our meal and left feeling very satisfied. The ambiance of only 12 guests makes it easy to talk with waiters and owner, Freja. Thoroughly recommend and will go back for a different season!

Our dining experience at ELSKA was one that will not be forgotten.
Friendly and very knowledgeable Wait Staff were attentive and helpful throughout our 14 course degustation, the food presented was out of this world ! With prior notice asking to accommodate a vegetarian request, Chef Nathan presented outstanding repeat dishes that delighted senses immediately and surpassed every expectation we had of dining at ELSKA.
Will definitely return. Thanks to the ELSKA Team for a fantastic evening.

Once again Freja and the team pulled out all the stops to make this the most wonderful experience. This is our third time here and the menu never fails to surprise and wow us. Nathan is the master at using native bush ingredients and with that fabulous Nordic twist. He is a true master at his craft. Philippe was wonderful, as usual. It warms my heart and soul with freja’s warm hospitality and the whole team feel like they are becoming family.

ELSKA proved to a foodies paradise! We’ve been eager to experience ELSKA throughout this crazy year. At last it happened and we were delighted! It’s not for everyone. If you are into creative ingredients and presentation, unusual combinations - which we are- then it’s a must do experience! The people were excellent - very knowledgeable and excited about their restaurant and product. The food was good and the matched wine selection was outstanding! Highly recommended for foodies!!

Third time at Elska and they continue to outdo themselves and set the bar higher. Food is creative with wonderful fresh and locally sourced ingredients that are paired with brilliant cooking and amazing presentation. The front of house staff are excellent and their contribution to the overall experience of dining in one of the best restaurants cannot be overstated. I can’t wait to get back there.

We always come to ELSKA for a special occasion. We love tasting all the wonderful dishes that are prepared using lots of native ingredients. Green ants, bunya nuts, saltbush to name a few. The service is always great and the staff very knowledgable on all the dishes. We plan to go every season to taste the new menu. Highly recommend!

Amazing place for a special occasion. An eclectic mix of food that really is exceptional. 12 courses with matched wines is the way to go. Whilst the wait staff were kind and didn't rush us, the meals were delivered a little fast for my liking. 12 courses in 1 hour 45 minutes was a bit too speedy. I would suggest the 8.30pm sitting next time as I imagine it would be a bit slower paced without another sitting after it. I will definitely be back!

12 Course Degustation takes you on an interesting adventure and continues to impress through to the very last course. Some courses a little less inspiring than the others but overall the experience continually grows the palate with great Australian native ingredients a highlight. The wine match is definitely worthwhile and the staff are very accommodating in helping you choose a blend of wine pairings. Food intolerance in our dining group was accommodated without fuss and in fact was a bit of a highlight.

The staff are very knowledgeable and engaging.
