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

We were very pleasantly suprised by the quality of the food. My personal experience of Indian food generally is it's very heavy and dense but here it was exceptionally light and refined. My only complaint would be the same as the sister restaurant (Thai Lounge) in that it's ridiculously over priced. Cheapest bottle of wine is £30 average £60. Main... More

Craving for Indian food, my husband and I tried this restaurant, and it went beyond my expectations! Truly one of the best dinners I ever had, totally traveled to India from Cancun, Mexico in one dinner time. My husband who never tried indian cuisine and who was very doubtful, loved it as well. We really enjoyed our night, service is... More

Having dined at Elefanta this evening (31/7/2014), I feel compelled to write this review. Firstly, the setting and the ambiance are lovely and for that I have no complaint. My brother and I have been travelling Central America for a while and being English, were desperate for some Indian food. However, we were bitterly disappointed - this is probably the... More

We had dinner in Cancún right on the waterfront! Elefanta is one of the three restaurants , part of a triad of restaurants: a Thai one, a Japanese one, and this one that's Indian. They're all fantastic The service was great.
