ELLA Bar & Bistro is the signature restaurant of the well thought out and trendy Ella Bed Hotel, admirably located in Soi Post-Office (Soi Praisanee) 50m from the beach of Patong. Established in December 2012 and designed in an industrial minimalist concept, the restaurant occupies the first floor of the hotel’s four-storey building.
Regarding the type of cuisine, ELLA Bar & Bistro stays in sync with the entire project’s out-of-the-ordinary concept, and serves revisited classic dishes from all around the world with an undeniable focus on the quality and freshness of the ingredients used, and on the health benefits of good cuisine. With its convenient location, friendly atmosphere, fashionable décor, and hearty food, ELLA is a cool place to lunch or dine.
Born in the fertile imaginations of Frank Chiu (a Sino-Canadian architect) and his Hat Yai-born Thai partner Dalinee Rueangkanokkun, the construction and concept of this retaurant and hotel are very interesting: two brand-new four-storey buildings were joined together, then deconstructed. Many elements and finishings were removed – ceilings, one staircase, and more. Then, to give the venue a chic industrial look, typical construction site articles such as factory lamps were added.
The principal materials used all around the place are fashionable buffed-concrete, natural brut wood from Krabi, black and silver painted metal furnishing, which at first sight may appears a bit cold yet is warmed with the colours of electric lighting. The atmosphere of ELLA Bar & Bistro is unpretentious and friendly; even though ELLA’s name is not directly related to the great Ella Fitzgerald, the ambience music (retro/vintage R&B and Jazz) played through a top-notch sound system has certain influences from the Motown era. Every Thursday, the party mood is set in motion from 21:00 onward with the performance of a cool live band.
Continuing with the minimalist concept, menus at ELLA Bar & Bistro are printed on four pages of recycled paper split into all-day breakfast, small plates, sharing platters, Thai food, sandwiches, burgers, coffee & drinks, and desserts. We could talk here about ‘world-cuisine’ as the dishes featured in each category show many influences from around the world: Eggs Benedict from Europe (poached eggs on Peameal bacon with Hollandaise sauce on in-house made bagels at 230 baht), Australian rib eye steak at 350 baht, Eggs Chilaguilas from Mexico (scrambled eggs, tortilla crumbs, cheddar, ranchero sauce, avocado, tomato & sour cream at 280 baht), a classic taste of Italy in the prosciutto di Parma with fresh melon at 200 baht and, of course, Thailand is represented by a flavoursome coconut soup with chicken at 180 baht).
Besides the menu, specials of the day are written down on a large blackboard hanging on the wall separating the open kitchen and the dining room.
Summing up, ELLA Bar & Bistro is a cool venue to stop by and enjoy a meal or a drink with friends while wandering around Patong beachfront. Well-thought-out and trendy, ELLA delivers the goods in style at very reasonable prices.
