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.

The owners have three restaurants here. A Thai place, this Indian restaurant, and a sushi bar. All share the primary feature of a terrific, beautiful, and romantic view.

Went there for a romantic dinner after recommendations. But, have you ever had good indian food before- don't go there. If so, only to enjoy the view at sunset and have an (expensive) drink. This being said; the restaurant is located in an upscale mall - in the hotel zone. I therefore presume tourists staying in the area wouldn't know... More

We are here as a family to celebrate my daughters birthday and had a great time. We reserved a seat of 4 at the water at 7 pm and the views of the sunset over the lagoon was breathtaking.

We had a lovely meal in Elefanta in July 2010. It was a beautiful setting and the food was delicious! My husband proposed to me in this restaurant too and we are looking forward to visiting Cancun again this year and popping into Elefanta for another lovely meal. See you in a few weeks :-)
