Recommend making reservations. Elvi's has a reputation for good food and its well deserved. It's informal, with great food and service. The staff was friendly, the live music was good and added to our experience.

We ate at Elvi's twice during our trip to Belize. It's a really cute place in the middle of town. Love the decor. There is a separate air conditioned room filled with paintings, and the rest of the restaurant is a sand floor. The food was good, the Lime Soup was delicious, everyone thought the little buns melted in your... More

The food was AWESOME! Service was great! The only time all week that I did not have a view of the water. Please allow the server to make suggestions. He lead us to the items that are favorites by many guests! Just as a side note, the chef was selected to cook for Prince Harry on a recent venture to... More

Nice restaurant with friendly service. Restaurant was packed, but they managed to squeeze us in. Ceviche was great! Friday night they offer the popular Mayan Buffet($30US).

Ok the Conch fingers and Coconut Curry dishes were delicious. The menu had a good selection for kids as well. The service was poor compared to every other place we went to on our 8 day trip. I expected much more after reading all reviews. The sandy floors and two singers were interesting but no air conditioning and in Center... More

I'll keep this review short but what I'll say is that my girlfriend and I went here on our third night in San Pedro. We enjoyed it so much we went back on our fourth night. We might have gone back on our fifth night if not for the restaurant being closed. The seafood dishes were all (we had four... More

I'm sentimental, I'll admit it. My wife and I ate at Elvi's on our honeymoon over 20 years ago. I've got a family of extended family in front of the tree from a few years ago. Eight of us enjoyed the Mayan buffet on Friday night and couldn't have been happier. There was a good range of options -- the... More
