A modern yet cosy eatery in Royal Oak, Five Elements Cafe and Bistro has all the friendliness of a local cafe with a touch of romanticism and class that really comes out in the evening.
A clean and restrained interior makes for a relaxing dining experience. With an intimate living-room vibe where everyone can enjoy a meal in close proximity, Five Elements is reminiscent of home and has cosy corners, comfy armchairs, and sun-soaked tables aplenty. Overlooking the quiet neighbourhood, this eatery has a particular note of calm that always has diners coming back for more.
Their Mediterranean-inspired menu also plays a big role in keeping regulars fiercely loyal. The menu is stuffed with fresh and aromatic ingredients, as well as comforting warmers, pub classics and home-cooked flavours. We're talking a melt-in-the-mouth beef ragu, pulled jackfruit crepes, creamy risottos, daily market fish and slow-braised lamb shoulder with grilled asparagus.
If you prefer to share and sample all the elements, opt for the tapas menu that treats the whole table to chermoula chicken wings, potato bravas, mussel fritters, grilled lamb skewers, and much more. Pair it with any of their NZ and international wines or, if it's a school night, accompany your meal with freshly pressed juice. It might be called Five Elements, but there are infinite reasons to visit this eatery. Time to add it to the list.
