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.

We booked this accommodation online and were very happy with the rooms when we arrived. The rooms are basic, but great value. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Just 3 minutes walk from the beach and seconds away from restaurants and bars.

At the time of our visit, L'Elephant Bleu was ranked second for restaurants. So we went in with high expectations. We were not impressed. I feel as though the chef has impressive skills but the lack of experience in the wait staff certainly hurt the environment. Upon entering we sat down and received menus rather than a clean table.

Food was good and staff was really nice, in particular Nico!! If you're looking for a good desert in Alona Beach, get their chocolate mousse !

We are not concerned with a restaurants decor. It need only to be clean, have good food at a reasonable price. So, while this restaurant is very, very basic, that was fine with us. It's the other two that caused this poor review. I ordered the same meal (beef tenderloin with potato and veggie) others on this forum raved about... More
