The setting. Oh, the setting.

This place is all ambiance. Is the food the best you'll ever have? No, but it's fine. Are the prices reasonable? Not really, but they're not too outrageous for a tourist joint ($20 or so for most entrees). So why should you come? The setting! Simply amazing! Private, secluded tables on a deck... read more

To be fair, the meal was great, no complaints what so ever, it was beautiful. The waiters were very attentative, maybe too much. A good waiter is hardly ever noticed, but one waiter wanted to clear tables before I'd finished my starter, that was unacceptable. My biggest gripe was the bill........I was all set to leave the waiter a sizeable... More

The curry was really tasty and made to an exceptionally high standard. Patha price is a bit high however the location is beautiful. We ate dinner overlooking the lagoon while the the sun set.

Our hotel was so bad we had to take a break and Eat here. As I have eaten at close to 50+ Indian restaurants I rate this number 3 best Indian Restaurant I have been too. This is a must try you will love it and the places has a romantic feel to it but great views of the harbor.

Elefanta is situated right on the lagoon in Cancun in the La Islas shopping center. It's location is fantastic, you sit waterside in a semi-private tiki hut to enjoy your dinner. The ambiance is truly special. The service was a little awkward (kept pressing for more drinks, desert and cigars ... and communication between wait staff seemed poor, with different... More

Me and my family and my parents had a reservation at this hotel and we arrived approx 15 mins before the scheduled time. The manager, Martin was not quite happy with it, although the restaurant was empty and there were only couple of families occupying. Martin was very rude and he did a favor on us by providing the seating.... More

The restaurant is within the shopping center Plaza la isla, the setting is very tropical, with tables right on the side of the lagoon. Service is great, the manager interacts with clients to guide them with the menu ensuring a great culinary experience.
