If you love Turkish food (we do!) or are just in the mood for some culinary adventure, Elma's will not disappoint. Terrific food, service and ambiance. Fabulous lake view from their partially enclosed second floor. The menu is mostly comprised of a broad selection of of mezes, which are smaller appetizer-sized dishes comparable to Spanish tapas. Great for sharing! Everything we tried was very well prepared and bursting with flavor
A phenomenal culinary experience in the BC interior. One of my favourite dining experiences in Canada. Strongly recommend both the drinks and food. We got the Elma 75 and Papillion, fantastic flavour profiles. We arrived for their new seasonal menu and my gosh what a delight. The ingredients truly reflect the regions freshness and diversity. The Prawns were a must but the scallops took home the championship. We barely had time for a picture of the dessert it was so glorious! The textures and unique flavours of the restaurant will truly make this a top 5 experience in the interior!
It was my second time visiting Elma and everything about it was incredible. The food was delicious, bread was fresh and crispy yet soft, we ordered family style which is what is recommended. Everything was so fresh and flavourful. We ordered a few bottles of wine that our server topped up as we drank, our server Mike was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is beautiful right on Okanagan beach, the interior design was trendy yet welcoming. This is a must try for anyone visiting Penticton.
Ladies and gentlemen, are you looking for judgemental waiters and meat that's filled with cumin? How about beautiful metal plates that pull the heat out of the food? A place you have to book 2 weeks in advance? Do I have the place for you! Enjoy lukewarm water and the waiter giving off the general feeling that you're a burden! You'll never pay more to feel poor! Enjoy getting interrupted as you try to enjoy overpriced cocktails and they wipe down your table like you're a nuisance! Worried you're missing out? Don't! Here at Elma you're paying to much to feel like your just in the way of the next guests
What a great dining experience! Our server Mike was really great, his intro to food was very clear and he gave great recommendations. Food wise, the main dish - sea bream is soooo delicious, the skin is crispy and the meat is tender and flavourful. Everything else were quite tasty too. Also, highly recommend their cocktails, we got the Elma 75 and Papillon, they were well balanced and yummy.
