“Don't be tempted to eat there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

Elegant atmosphere and great view. But don't go there to eat. Food is ok but not even closely worth the £75 per person we paid (+ drinks on top). Not sure what the qualifications of the staff there is either. They were struggling to open a bottle of wine and explain details of the menu.

“over the top...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2010

Sorry to say but this last dinner was just not at all what we expected and heard. Restaurant was almost empty despite our table with 14 people. Service was good looking but very slow and unconcerned, the food (from pasta to meat) was not good at all and most of the plates went back half emptied. Even by giving notice to them that we are not enjoying the evening no reactions, so we chose to have our coffee at another place.

Hope you get back on track.

“I live in Ibiza and have eaten here on...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010 via mobile

I live in Ibiza and have eaten here on several occasions and found it over priced and not special. One can find better dining experiences in Ibiza. It does have a nice roof terace for drinks. Be warned: last year the owner left the island without paying his staff and locals are boycotting this establishment. L' Elephant=Bad karma! Shame on you
