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. Last night I had pork tenderloin in a porcini mushroom sauce. Best pork dish I have ever had. And, at a suggestion of one of... More

Food and service were both subpar... Price wasn't the most expensive, but up there. They didn't have our first menu choices in stock, and food had to be reordered. Sad to say nothing really special

Set back slightly from the road this unassuming restaurant serves delicious European and local food. Thiink hearty bistro style in portion and in presentation for the servings. The pork loin in green peppercorn was lovely, and the burgers simply awesome. The local adobe went down well too. But the quality of the mains were outdone by the desserts. Both the... More

It is simply the most kind staff and chef you can find here. The food is excellent and the chef is very honest about his kitchen. The pasta is his own import from Italy.

We went for dinner. It was nice enough place though it isn't particularly French. Food ok but pretty small portions. For mains we had the prawns and got three each, which is a bit tight fisted given they must cost nothing and the sauce didn't have much taste either. The (sole) red wine was quite drinkable and the mango pie... More

Almost everything I tried there is good. From appetizers to main dishes and not to forget their desserts! And prices so affordable. No idea what to order? Ask for Dario, the owner/Chef who is more than willing to give you suggestions plus, detailed information. Their 'Chicken Breast in Madagascar Sauce' is a must-try, you can never get enoug
