“Best bang for your buck. Amazing food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Blue elephant

I can't describe in words how amazing this place is. First off service is excellent - and food is faster than anywhere we've eaten on the beach. Don't even waste ur time with the recycled seafood BBQs on the beach. For the same price here ill get gourmet. Excellent flavour. Im a vegetarian and the vegetarian pasta, sandwich, and crepe are To frighten die for. Like, hands down better than any vegetarian dishes I've had in canada.

The chef came out all times we ate here to ask how everything was. He's truley cares about his guests. Even offered us a free desert.

Don't waste ur time elsewhere - eat here once and you'll not want to bother anywhere else!

Xxl to die for sandwiches (all even meat) 199 for over a foot... 100 for regular... Vegetarian pasta 250.... And their creeps are all 150-175.

They have chicken beef and prawn dishes too.... All look to die for.

Presentation and ambience here is the best.

“Brilliant service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

We tried this tiny restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. It is well worth a visit, the food was very good and there was a wide choice on the menu. The prices are fair and the dining experience is very unique. The waiting staff were very good, we were very impressed with how the young waiter provided such a high service and was very confident with recommendations.
The only negative was that the chicken was slightly pink for our liking.
Definitely recommend the mango pudding.

“Simple but good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

From the outside the restaurant looks very simple, but the quality of the food is excellent. Not to much choice but the food which is served is very good and also cheap!

“A hidden treasure @ Alona Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Beef is never a popular item in The Philippines.
But we found great burgers and steaks at L'Elephant Blue.

Firstly introduced by a local friend and we found that we needed to visit it a second time by ourselves.

Great food, smart waitresses!!

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We decided to take a break from the restaurants right on Alona Beach and headed a little inland. I had the chicken cordon bleu one night and it was the best meal I had on Panglao. I decided to go back the next night and had one of the Dory fish dishes and it was just as delicious. And the mango pie was really good, too! The restaurant may not be right on the beach, but the food was absolutely excellent!
