Restaurant description

Holder of a Michelin Plate, Ella Canta is a celebration of bold Mexican cuisine and freshly-stirred cocktails. This wonderfully chic venue features soft, earthy tones paired with flickering candlelight, giving it a cosy, intimate feel.

Vibrant colours and bold Mexican flavours feature on the Ella Canta menu, with dishes given striking presentation and attention to detail. Start off with signature guacamole served with ricotta cheese, pomegranate and a golden grasshopper, as well as black bean soup with foie gras and mezcal. Mains feature delicacies like sea bass and cabbage tortillas, and traditional Michoacán-style pork carnitas with arbol chilli salsa.

A bold cocktail list is served at Ella Canta in Mayfair, made with premium tequilas and eclectic infusions. There are also Mexican hot drinks, including coconut milk with chocolate metate from Oaxaca, mint and toasted pumpkin seeds.

A stylish restaurant in London serving unique Mexican flavours with beautiful presentation, Ella Canta is a minute's walk from Hyde Park Corner Tube Station.

    Absolutely loved the entire experience. We had a wonderful waitress who was very attentive- Dalina (?). The food was delicious and amazing portion sizes. The chicken fajitas were incredible. The Margaritas were delicious- especially the mango one. I recommend it all :)

    The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated & stylish. The set menu had plenty of choice & the waiter explained all the dishes as we were unfamiliar with this type of Mexican food. I had the corn bread with mushrooms & cheese starter which was delicious. All 3 of us chose the guinea fowl main course which was plentiful & the lentils with it were a great accompaniment, a really good dish. We each had a different dessert & they were all fabulous, mine was the 3 milk cake. The margaritas were good & the lolly to finish a nice touch. It got quite noisy as the place filled up though. We loved the food & ambience, will definitely come again.

    Very enjoyable meal with high quality and decorative food with attentive service but courses were quite rushed, so felt as if you were being rushed out.

    The restaurant is one of the restaurants within the Intercontinental Hotel on Park Lane. My party all had the set menu for £39. This worked out a bit cheaper as the price included a cocktail. This menu was very small and half of the choices had supplements which seemed unfair as this meant there was a high chance of paying extra. One of my party ordered the lamb with the £9 supplement whilst I had the beef with no supplement. Our dishes had the same quantity of food on them so no extra for the extra £9. I found the food over salty and the plantain puree was too bitter to eat. Our party of three each had a different dessert. None of us liked our own or the other persons we tried. My party eat out at restaurants in London frequently but still felt this one was pricey. The cocktails were beautifully presented but tasted awful. I really wanted to love this place as the food looked absolutely beautiful. Unfortunately no one in my party liked the taste of it.

    I really enjoyed my starter of octopus, and had a couple of lovely cocktails.... but the mains, desserts and service were extremely disappointing! And to top it all, out bill was wrong by about £40/50!

    Both the cocktails and the food were very imaginative with unusual combinations and tastes - very enjoyable. The staff were lovely but I presume had been given instructions to explain every dish in minute detail which can get a little wearing. We were with friends and our problem was that the volume of the background music meant it wasn’t actually in the background and our conversations were difficult. The staff kindly turned the sound down when asked - our problem could be that we were rather above the average age of the rest of the room. I would definitely recommend this place to my daughters but maybe not to my peers.

    Absolutely loved this place. The food was very tasty, particularly the octopus starter and the beef cheek main. Portions were generous. Great non alcoholic cocktails and lovely staff. Would definitely recommend.
