“Fabulous dining experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The service and food at Elvira was beyond fabulous. We enjoyed a fantastic dinner on the beautiful outdoor patio. The price was very resonable and worth every $.

“Elviria restaurant --pretensions not fulfilled, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The restaurant was modernized 4 years ago.Its ambiance, both inside and outside is very pleasant. We were sitting outside on a July evening. There were not that many guests. However, we found that service was inattentive, and unprofessional, . We had to wait eons for the appearance of each drink, each dish, for somebody to come and ask how are things going. When bread was consumed, the plates were NOT refilled automatically. A waiter brought a dish, just dumped it on the table. It appears that the staff has not been trained.

As for the food. My wife ordered fish of the day, she thought it was delicious. She said no potatoes, the headwaiter said, we will give you vegetables instead. Promise unfulfilled, a tiny helping of one vegetables provided.

Another guest and I had filet steaks. The steak was good. The pepper sauce was also very good. The steak was accompanied by a VERY limited quantity of selected vegetables (say 2 florets of broccoli, one of cauliflower, one slice of carrot, a smallish segment of potato) all crunchy and boiled. The vegetables were all very blah. There was NO salad or vegetarian selection on the menu.

Deserts were very superb. The restaurant provides a free small starter and a free finish of lemon sorbet with cassis (delicious.)

Bottom line: Must train untrained waiters in what is acceptable service. They have to provide tasty vegetables and not try to save money on limited provisions. Must learn to listen to customers' desires. If these items are fulfilled, restaurant could easily obtain 4 stars because of location and food.

“Could have been so much better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Arrived here as a party of four in early June, Elviria was very quiet, on the Saturday evening we decided to eat out and chose the Elviria Restaurante based on its good reviews.
On arrival we were asked if we had made a reservation, we had not, at this point we could have been told it was not possible to cater for us, we would have quite happily wandered down the hill and chose somewhere else. Sadly we were shown to a table. The service we were shown can only be described as poor, we waited for much longer than what you would expect for both drinks and food menus, the atmosphere was frosty at best and I can only assume the head waiter had got the hump because we did not reserve a table. The food was of a good standard but our topic of conversation was the poor service, an error with the bill almost cost us an extra $50. For the first time in ages we left without leaving a tip. Maybe we caught them on a bad night but as there are other places that do offer great service (see my next review) I don't expect we will visit this restaurant again
