“quiet place but good food and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

This is our second time eating at Elite, the place is quiet, when we got there, only one table, by time we ordered our wine, we were the only table there, so great, we had the whole restaurant for ourselves, but the food was very good, good value too! It's in Island Harbour! Pasta was excellent, also the blanken snapper was so yummie! Definitely going back again.

“Best Penne Arrabbiata ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We stumbled on Elite on our walk from Shoal Bay Villas to Island Harbour. It was early morning so they were not open yet but we walked around enjoying the view and fell in love with the looks of the place. We walked back up the next day for lunch. We were not really expecting great food, we were going for the view and ambiance. Elite sits right on the water and has covered seating as well as outdoor beach seating. We took a seat at the edge of the covered area (our toes could touch the sand) with a fantastic view of the harbour and boats. The best surprise was when we ordered. We are both huge fans of Penne Arrabbiata and have not found a place outside of Italy that could repeat the culinary experience. We found it! This was absolutely the best we have had INCLUDING Italy. It was spicy and full of flavor and the penne pasta perfectly al dente. The prices were incredibly reasonable, the meal came with a basket of delicious bread and olive oil for dipping and they have a full bar. Our lunch for two with entrees and a total of four beers plus tip was around $40. A bargain for Anguilla especially considering the excellent quality. We will be back on our next trip!

“WONDERFUL FOOD & LOCATION ~ We'll be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We both enjoy good food and were not disappointed here! The fettuccine was so good, cooked perfectly and tender, we went back and tried the spinach ravioli last night and were equally as impressed. Elite doesn't look exciting from the road but the food is excellent and there is a lovely beach if you want to come for lunch. Definitely on our repeat list! Not the least expensive restaurant but good value for money considering the quality of the food and service. Once this restaurant is discovered, it is going to be busy. Put it on your list. Excellent chef with a nice flare and lots of experience.

“Celebrated out 50th. anniversary!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Elite was our choice for this event with a party of 15. We have eaten at this restaurant quite often, and have always been more than satisfied. We were lucky, and had the whole restaurant for our party - The staff made the evening very special, the large table was beautifully decorated, and they did everything possible to make this a very special evening. We would strongly recommend Elite for a quiet dinner for 2 or more right on the beach, or a large event like ours. The staff should obviously be given advance notice for a larger party.

Elite is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, their menu is extensive but not expensive, Italian cuisine is featured.

The fifth star was not awarded as the service was a little slow, but everyone was having a great time and we hardly noticed!
