Beautiful food & setting

This was the only time we ate out in cancun as we were all inclusive, but the food and service was outstanding, and the theme/setting of the restaurant was beautiful overlooking the lagoon. Would deffo return again.

Somehow, the Indian restaurant opens at 5pm or later during lunch they serve sushi. Very good and we are very pleased, as always Japanese food are a little pricey.

Perfect meal from beginning to end. Finding Elefanta in this winding mall (La Isla) is so totally worth it. You walk in remembering you've been in a wonderful shopping area, only to forget it immediately as you are led to a quiet retreat. Each table is a private retreat to watch the sunset with perfectly set lighting and a fan... More

Recently visited this restaurant. Had vegetarian items, and it was standard Indian fare that you would get in any decent Indian restaurant in the US. Nothing extraordinary, but not shabby either. The prices were a rip-off though. They had only Evian bottled water and charged 90+ pesos for it. All the other menu items were more expensive compared to US... More

We went to Elefante while on our vacation and enjoyed it so much we came back again the same week. The food was excellent, the service friendly and sitting right on the water was lovely! A very relaxing, peaceful place to have dinner. Can't wait to go back next year!

Eating Indian food infrequently led us to this referred location. Waiter was helpful in finding different foods for our tasting and how to embellish the amazing flavors created. Eating on a private deck overlooking the lagoon watching the sun set with relaxing Spa like music made it difficult to leave this slice of heaven! Service with a smile yet not... More

Sitting right on the peaceful backwater lake, soaking in the sunset & genuine Indian food. Great service & the chef, on request, made our order Jain .. no onion garlic. One of the best places to eat out in Cancun.
