French-inspired cuisine, fabulous wine and sophisticated décor- Elba might first and foremost be a wine bar but don’t let that deter you if you’re looking for a place to enjoy fine food. Owned and operated by Rhys Lloyd with French-born chef Nicolas Lemarre running the kitchen, the pair have combined their knowledge of food and wine to create an establishment brimming with sophistication.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
Finally, we have a grown up venue to visit in Cottesloe that melds elegant, sexy décor with delicious fare and fabulous vino. Elba is first and foremost a wine bar but don’t let that deter you if you’re looking for a place to enjoy fine food. Quite frankly, Elba is just what Cottesloe needed. Owned and operated by Rhys Lloyd with French-born chef Nicolas Lemarre running the kitchen, the pair have combined their knowledge of food and wine to create an establishment brimming with sophistication and all things delectable.

Entering Elba, you’re greeted by a long main room with a mirror-lined bar where affluent locals perched on high stools enjoy a glass of rosé and salt cod croquettes. Heavy black curtains and small booths create a more comfortable scenario for those wishing to settle in and make a night (or day) of it. The bar morsels and share plates provide plenty of options for those wanting a few nibbles to complement their Veuve Cliquot or Dunes sparkling, with the seared scallops on potato galette being the perfect accompaniment for bubbles.

Share plates encourage a good survey of the menu and allows diners to mix and match flavours. Cured salmon carpaccio is given edge with orange dressing and fennel salad whilst the shaved spicy chickpea and spinach empanadas are dipped in onion jam and smoky eggplant aioli. The twice-cooked pork belly with spicy hummus and marsala jus is not as happily shared! If picking at share platters doesn’t hit the spot, more substantial dishes include pan-fried pink snapper with ratatouille and green olive tapenade, or crumbed chicken stuffed with pimento, mahon cheese, and spinach. Elba is not the sort of place you want to show up from the beach in your bathers and flip-flops, but it’s a wonderful spot for us adults to indulge in life’s little luxuries.
