“Lobster season is open!!!”

Fantastic lobster ceviche followed by blackened lobster. Absolutely fantastic. The staff were lovely and made great recommendations. Great service, great food and a nice atmosphere, what's not to love.

“Excellent food, great environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The food was excellent. Had the adobo snapper (wrapped and cooked in a banana leaf) and it was exceptional. The floor is sand which provides a neat environment. One of the oldest (if not the oldest) restaurants on the island. you MUST eat here at least once. The Friday Mayan buffet is a big hit

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Went there twice.. Both times tried out the Belizian fish tacos and the the shrimp coconut curry and both were to die for.. The margaritas were awesome too!

“Excellent Food in a wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

We tried Elvis late in our vacation. Wish we had gotten to it sooner. The eclectic menu satisfied us all as we each (4 of us) wanted something different. Their fruit juice smoothie was tasty without being too sweet.
The Mayan fish tacos are to die for.
Overall a great meal with very good value just in middle street downtown.

“awesome mayan buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

went to Elvi's for the Friday night Mayan buffet. 25$ US per person, I believe the kids pay full price if they are over eleven....but not completely sure on that one. Our waiter, Gilmer, really made the meal for us. He was helpful, kind, told us about other things to see and do while on vacation. The food was delicious and plentiful. We were encouraged to stay as long as we wanted ...and we did! The floor is sand, and there is a tree growing through the roof of the restaurant!
