Great food!

This is a great place to grab a simple meal. Our group of five enjoyed fish, chicken, and curry dishes that were great. The traditional setting with a sand floor creates a great atmosphere.

We came here based on tripadvisor reviews. Food was very good, variety of seafood other local dishes. Seating was a bit cramped for our party of five, table a bit small and restaurant was crowded for dinner. Live music provided by a man singing and playing guitar. Might be little pricey for picky kids.

Second time to dine here and it did not disappoint. Friendly staff and great food. I had a curry shrimp dish that was delicious. You must try the coconut rice!

We arrived with 12 and were served immediately. 12 great drinks, salads and appetizers including shrimp ceviche and black bean soup. The fish served from Coconut curry, creole, fried chicken, blackened and garlic butter all were excellent. I loved my blackened but really felt the curry was the best. Do not miss the opportunity to try this amazing restaurant.

We heard excellent things about Elvi's from everyone we met - their seafood, their service, their traditional food. But we went on Friday night for their all-you-can-eat Mayan buffet ($30 US per person- pretty spendy for the island). Now there are pros and cons to this.... you do get to try a little bit of everything, but nothing is spectacular.... More

LOBSTER NACHOS. They will change your life. We had them at the festival, and it was so good we went and found the restaurant two blocks into the town another night!

You know when you go over to Grandma's house and get yourself some amazing home cooking and leave feeling like a king? Elvi's does that for you without the endless novelas, having to deal with annoying cats or questions about grandchildren. Need I say more?

They have all the trappings of a fine dining restaurant, white linens, all-male, white shirt, black pants wait staff. The menu was a little confusing whether some items offered were cooked by Elvi's or elsewhere. It was very dark, could barely see my food! The portions were skimpy. I ordered Elvi's "famous" fried chicken, famous for what? I got a... More
