Visited this restaurant in the dead quiet of the afternoon after a massage after 2pm. It certainly felt like afternoon siesta time on the beach. I had a great special of the grilled prawns and rice and one of the best mango shakes on the island. I wish I had time in my schedule to come back here again on... More

I like that the owner is always there and tries to chat with the customers. This allows them to get insights and improve in any way possible. I also like how the dishes are relatively affordable, but is prepared thoroughly. The ambiance is also very cozy and gourmet type - but simple :)

Looked at the reviews on tripadvisor and boy did it come through. Had an absolutely stunning meal. Don't let looks fool you though (we saw another couple walk out of the restaurant, a huge mistake on their part). The cream dory and chocolate mousse were the highlights, tiger prawns were excellent, my sister wouldn't even let me taste the chicken... More

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.
