Oh my goodness!

Terrific food and massive portions.they will also make food to taste and for under 300 pesos per head excluding drink is terrific value. Also there is an exceptional bakery around the corner in the direction of the beach, I recommend grabbing a few brioche type goods for 5 pesos each to snack on if... read more

Really tasty and good food. Pasta was great and steak was tender. Really worth every peso spent. In my opinion narrow menu was great and best way to keep all ingredients fresh and tasty. Might be little hard to spot the place if driving main road but surely worth visiting. ( close to Helmut's place )

This small and simple restaurant serves excellent and comparably less expensive food. It is located right on the corner before entering the Alona beach where many of disappointing restaurant wait for their guests. We had Bruschetta as starters and gamba pasta and chicken cordon bleu for main course. Both main dishes as well as the starter were very tasty. The... More

On our way to the countryside tour, we saw this resto as we left Alona beach and we promised we'd eat here since it was nearby the hotel. What we failed to realize was that cars take a different route to exit Alona beach. Cars make an exit on this dirt road parking lot like place and L'Elephant is just... More

Ate at this restaurant after reading TA. Could not be reached for a telephone reservation but arrived around 7pm and was easily seated. Limited choice menu in underwhelming surroundings. The food though was excellent - decent sized portions and enough choice to suit all tastes - pan-asian to homemade burgers. Sauces well constructed and presentation, food temperature and flavours all... More

We had lunch here on our last day in Alona beach. We took a tricycle from Amorita Resort to get here, paid P 50 per tricycle with 3 persons. We were hoping to have a different meal after several Filpino meals. The food - cordon bleu, pork tenderloin with porcini sauce, chicken breast with curry sauce, burger with bleu cheese,... More

Great food, great staff. Menu wasn't exactly French cuisine but none the less there was a nice variety on the menu from burgers to gambas. Service was really good. Highly recommend!!!!

I heard good things about the restaurant but on a visit in January 2015 I was disappointed. The staff were keen and running around as restaurant was full and they could have done with another member of staff. I just found the food average and nothing special.
