I was a waitress at E&C for six months recently, and I loved it. It is such a cute and cozy place, and the regulars that come in almost every day give you that "Cheers" feeling (everyone knew my name and I knew theirs). One of the perks of working there - a free meal per shift. So, having tried most of the menu, I can honestly say the food is delicious! I miss all those nights having a free Lime & Coriander Chicken entree, or the Smoked Chicken Sandwich. I still have cravings for the Chinois dressing on the Sauteed Shrimp Salad, and have since asked the manager if I can buy a container to bring home. All the ingredients in their food choices are fresh and different. Truly a pleasure to work for them, especially the management who I'd have to say are the nicest bosses I've ever had. I sincerely love this place and pop in often.

I have been going to the Elephant & Castle for about 20 years. A friend took me there and I've been going there ever since. It's my favorite restaurant. Everytime I bring a friend they love it and want to go back. The food is really fresh and different...I especially love their baby cesar salad and their bananna foster crepes and the coffee ice cream with raspberries and fudge. And they always have wonderful specials. Their tee shirts are really neat too.
The staff is always friendly and in all the times I've eaten there (every chance I get to go into the Village) I have never had a bad meal.
It is a really great place to eat whether breakfast, lunch or dinner. The prices are right and it is not a commercial restaurant...you get the flavor of the Village. I very highly recommend it.

Pros: easy to get to from Path train.

Cons: none that I can think of.

I have been going to this place for over 15 years now and it never lets me down. The wait staff are all pleasant and helpful and the food is always great. You can have a quiet lunch or breakfast alone here or dine with friends. The salads and omelettes are always good. I have always had wonderful experiences here and have many fond memories of dinners, lunches, breakfasts, and brunches here. Go and you will be well taken care of!

This place offers a diverse menu with tasty sandwiches, salads, and burgers, and surprisingly, excellent entrees! I had a catfish special recently, which was presented artfully and was even more delicious than it looked. I was delighted to find that you can enjoy high-quality food at half the price of many fancier restaurants, AND feel like you're eating in a cozy, intimate English pub. Perfect for a wintry night.

Elephant Castle has the best brunch menu in the city. Simple and tasty, this is what the Village is supposed to be all about. The seating is limited, but the family-like, nonpretensious staff seems to always make everyone comfortable. The drinks and food are delicious and served with care. You can not go wrong at this restaurant.

I ate at the E&C for the first time about a year ago and have been back at least once a month. There's something I can only describe as 'old-school' charming about the place. It woody, oddly shaped and very cozy. The wait staff is young and friendly. The bathroom is through kitchen. The burgers are excellent and most of the other dishes are pretty good too. I view it as the quintessential Village restaurant - no Upper East Side frat boys, no Upper West Side families and NO Meat Packing district B&T's. A New York restaurant for New Yorkers.

Pros: Cozy, Charming, Classic

Cons: Wait to get in, Not quite the Village, Odd dishes

Oddly enough the night that we went to dinner here the place was pratically empty. We did arrive at about 9:30 PM and had wonderful service. Our waiter was very gracious and friendly. The music playing added to the atmosphere. So the next time we go out late for dinner we'll be back. Oh and the menu is varied and has great options.

The burgers are terrible! Ordered medium rare, they came out dry and well done. My friend had been coming here for years, and noted that the burgers had gotten smaller. When we asked the waitress, she said the burgers were the same size, but the buns are now bigger! I don't think so. The service was sporadic and with attitude. Not at all recommended.

This place reeks of a snowy/rainy, cool aftrenoon in the fall or winter. It almost seems inappropriate to go their when it's warm. The food is simple and delicious and the waitstaff is kind and prompt.

This little place has been turning out the best, juiciest, most perfect iconic hamburgers your heart could dream of for over 20 years. A New Yorker's secret, perfect for a very hungry date.

No wonder this place is always crowded. It serves an great variety of original American dishes and wonderful burgers, served by a competent staff. Brunch is a feast and prices are user-friendly. It's been my favorite since it opened in the early 70's. Try also the Nutella crepe or the Indian pudding.

The brunch here is tasty enough but the portions are small. That latter aspect came as surprise to me given the bowl of cafe au lait on the menu. I expected big. But when when my order arrived, I was disheartened to see that the food, while nicely presented, would have fit more comfortably on a dessert dish if not a coffee saucer. (The potato pancakes are the size of silver dollars, not standard flapjacks.) Supplementing your order with extra toast or a muffin is highly recommended. The decor--dark paneling with a wall of small mirrors--likely relates a cozy vibe in wintry weather. On warm days, the darkness is a downer--ceramic elephants notwithstanding. Without question a quainter British dining experience can be found at Tea and Sympathy a short walk away.

There's one of these cheery saloons in Dublin (though it's named after an area in London) and one here in the Village. With its simple menu and efficient service, it is a perfect pit stop for shoppers in the daytime and, since it's open…
