The location of this restaurant is amazing right on the lagoon. The way we were seated it was like a private booth. The waiters where among the best... More

Went here after recommendation from a friend and def worth a visit. Travelling with 2 vegetarian Indians and the food was definately great / service very good / the setting of the restaurant on a stunning lagoon. The dishes come in really decent portions so you can order quite a few things to share! Really good value for money too.

We ate dinner here twice and loved the food and the setting on the water. We mostly ordered vegetarian dishes.

Elegant a is in the Isla shopping center. The decor and atmosphere are beautiful. My wife is from India, so a good Indian meal on vacation is quite welcome. She enjoyed every bite and we had a lovely time dining on the water's edge--literally.

I go to Indian restaurants in NYC all the time but Elefanta was the best by far. Love the garlic naan and sauces.

Great location. The restaurant is RIGHT ON A PIER. Eat some delightful indian food as you watch sting rays floating by the in the water underneath. Surreal experience. Only at Elefanta. Food was great (a little expensive). It's an outdoor place with no A/C so it was HOT. This is the only place that we went to outside our all... More
