Traveling with 5 girlfriends and we enjoyed a meal for our last night out at Elephanta at the La Isla shopping center in Cancun. The food was very good, however, had a little more heat than you'd expect of typical similar Indian fare (at least where I'm from with a very large selection of Indian restaurants in SF Bay Area)....

Being of Indian descent, I always try to eat at an Indian restaurant when I travel. There are always a few but sometimes you happen upon a gem and this was one! Food - Amazing.

Classy, unique, good food. Want to try the adjoining Thai restaurant next time. Couldn't be nicer. Built over the lagoon. Great for a romantic evening.

Delicious food. There were 4 of us and everyone raved about their meals. The restaurant is in the big shopping mall called La Isla, so it is easy to get to from the hotel zone. It is a lovely setting. right on the water's edge of the lagoon. I highly recommend this place for food and ambiance.

The service here is awesome! Martin, the manager is great! Anything you need, just ask. Bartenders pour very good drinks and are very attentive. Very cool atmosphere, especially when the DJ is playing music!

Excellent restaurant in an excellent location. The staff were friendly and kindly placed us on a quiet table overlooking the lagoon which we requested, the food was great value for money and we recommended this to other people at our hotel who also visited and enjoyed it. We will definitely return.
