We've never had a bad dinner at Elvi's! While it is a restaurant that is often frequented by visitors to the island, we are locals and always enjoy their authentic Belizean cooking. The menu is very generous with many items to chose from, and there is undoubtedly something for everyone here. Any of Elvi's curried dishes are delicious, and their... More

We saved Elvi's Kitchen for our last night in San Pedro. Every person we asked about where to eat named Elvi's. We had a couple of dishes, and they were both delicious. The Coconut Curry was amazing! They also had live music ~ it was a Friday night, so this might not be every night, but they were great, too!

My wife and I ate here on our last evening. The Mayan buffet was fabulous. The dining room with the sand floor was fun. The service was excellent. The seafood bisque was amazing, and we both loved the shrimp tacos. I wish we had eaten here more than once.

My wife and I ate dinner at Elvi's and it was the best meal that I had during our vacation. The restaurant is really neat and has a tree growing up in the middle of it. They also had live music (acoustic guitar) playing on a Thursday night, so that added to the experience. We both had the seafood platter... More

We have been to San Pedro twice and have eaten at Elvi's twice. Both times the food there one of the best meals we had while in Belize. The curry chicken and the pasta we had were excellent. I would highly recommend a visit for dinner while in San Pedro.

We went for lunch and I had the Mayan Tacos. They were good, small (4" dia) corn tortillas with chicken marinated in a really good spice mixture, and covered with some kind of red cabbage relish. I had "lime juice", which was their home made version of limeade, which was wonderful. No A/C - just open dining, so a bit... More

Belizean Fish Tacos were excellent. Conch tacos were good but appetizer sized. Waitress was awful. Another waiter jumped in and got us drinks -tipped him on way out. If he had been our waiter review might be better. Would not go back-very tourist trap like.

One of the locals sent us here and said it's where the local eat...well, I guess the locals all decided to eat somewhere else that night. The sand floors were an interesting touch. The food was pretty ok. Grilled conch with rice and 'famous' fries chicken. Both were good and provided local flavors. Didn't care too much for the bar... More

Eliv's is really, really good! We ate there several evenings. The Stone Crabs are huge and out of this world! Everything we ordered was great. Service is great. Pretty inside. Highly recommend.
