This place was listed in our room guide as a good place to eat. The food and service were very good. Be sure to check it out while in San Pedro.

We went after reading a TripAdvisor review and were not disappointing! Local band was playing some classic softer rock with a Caribbean flair. The food was amazing! Sand floor is a nice touch. Overall, a great place to eat in San Pedro!

Heard some good things about this place and my wife and I stopped by for lunch which in San Pedro. The place was nice and had a great crowd for lunch. My wife had the pork tacos which she really enjoyed. I had snapper with roasted garlic and while there was fresh it was very dry. I had two pieces... More

Excellent crab and lobster. Had a typical Belizean meal that was so delicious. We have been to this restaurant on previous visits to San Pedro. Always delicious. There was live music that was delightful. Not too loud and very entertaining.

Elvi's is such a cool place. The atmosphere is great! There is sand on the ground! We learned from a cab driver that Elvi's has been around for 30 years and was originally a picnic table under a tree. The tree is still there and the restaurant has been built around it. We were lucky enough to sit right under... More

My husband and I visited Elvi's on a Friday night as we heard the buffet was awesome. He wasn't impressed, especially for the price. Even though he didn't love his meal I was floored with how good the belizaen tacos were. Probably one of my favourite meals there. The salsa/coleslaw on top paired so nice with the fish and Jack....
