Located near Alone beach this place is definitely worth a visit. While the decor is basic, much energy is put into the cooking. I had today's special: American beef from tenderloin with 5 pepper sauce and chocolate mousse. The meals were prepared by the French chef and owner I think and both dishes were wonderful. Beef cooked to a degree... More

We had a very nice evening at this place. The place is run by a italian-swiss chef-hobbiest with a true passion for cooking. We had the beef and pork tenderloin, good quality meat and nice side dishes. Also desserts are amazing, the chocolade mousse is to die for!

Go to L'Elephant Bleu if you love delcious food with good service. It's as simple as that! The owner cooks up some fantastic flavors from start to finish (we ordered starters, mains and dessert - all very impressive). Recommended by our Lonely Planet book, we stumbled in with empty stomachs and we left filled up, every bite was superbly done.... More

I so wish the food on the beach was even half as nice as this place. Not much in the atmosphere department but after 7 days of mediocre food was relieved to get something worth relishing. In the future, I will just do drinks and appetizers for the view and blue elephant for dinner.

Small numbers of spots available. Food was of a high standard and the beers cold. Interesting restaurant owner and willing and pleasant staff make for a good dining experience.

I've been here a few months now, and I can safely say that this place delivers quality, tasty food every time. Never had a dish I didn't love. The price is fantastic & Dario makes the best chilli sauce I have ever had . Try the Chicken Breast .....

I had dinner here on may 28st with my two kids. We ordered the steak with porcinni sauce(whisky based), pasta with shrimp & garlic and pork adobo rice. That's their specialty of the day. I liked the steak especially the contrast of the potatoes with rosemary on the side and steak. It compliments very well. My kids loved the pasta... More

Reading through the recent reviews, I am puzzled by the low ones. Elephant Blue is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. It was great two years ago. It is better today.
