“great indian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

We had dinner in Cancún right on the waterfront! Elefanta is one of the three restaurants , part of a triad of restaurants: a Thai one, a Japanese one, and this one that's Indian. They're all fantastic The service was great.

“Beautiful and Romantic View”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

The owners have three restaurants here. A Thai place, this Indian restaurant, and a sushi bar. All share the primary feature of a terrific, beautiful, and romantic view. Come around 7 pm and watch the sunset. Other pluses include: the somosas are delicious, the chicken is tender, and both the naan and the black dal is first rate. Some negatives: this place is very expensive, the brownie and ice cream were not good, and the chai was weak. I would recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner for two. But the best seats are not set up for more than two. The feature of being right on the water with no balcony, while extremely romantic, would be frightening for families with small children. That, coupled with the high prices, makes me recommend that families should look elsewhere for dinner in the hotel zone.

“Truly authentic indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I am an Indian student studying in USA for the past two years and I havent eaten authentic Indian food anywhere. Elefanta is the best Indian food I have eaten and the taste is exactly like the food in India. Wen kept going there to eat the food and Black dals, Seekh kabab, paneer tikka, onion kulcha and tawa sabzi was truly amazing. The view is brilliant and the service is great.
