The waterfall, the landscaping and the seating will certainly carry you far, far away.

The restaurant itself presents the customers with a serene and beautiful environment. The service was excellent and the waiters were helpful, attentive and had a good eye for small details that made the experience one of the best dining experiences I've had. The food was excellent and presented attractively. It was a bit on the expensive side, but taking into... More

if you want an excellent experience in ambience, service, food and all that is good in a top restaurant a visit to the Blue Elephant is a must. Bit on the expensive side but well worth it

This restaurant feels pretty serene and was pretty busy for a weekday.Food was enjoyable and service pretty quick other than when we wanted to pay it took a while.My only gripe is that as ever tables for two are too small if you are reasonably biggish eaters as you run out of table.space.

Tasty food, good service and friendly staff. We were part of a large group and everyone got their food at the same time. I'd go again without hesitation.
