L'Elephant Bleu serves amazing burgers, simple as that. We came back three times for the burgers: cheesy bacon and spicy burger with soft buns, juicy meat, and shredded cucumber. Can't really speak for the rest of the menu, since we only had the burgers, but I'd definitely recommend them to anyone staying at Alona Beach.

One of the best burgers and carbonara I've ever had! The prices are fine for the serving amount. They just need to improve their fans, chairs and tables. It should have better ambiance so it would match with the very good food they're serving.

Ate here twice and was really surprised to find such great french cuisine in the middle of the philippines. We tried the cordon bleu, vanilla champagne chicken, blue cheese carbonara and the dory fillet. All lovely dishes, try the creme brulee as dessert it's a stunner and real authentic taste. For us like a slice of home, having been gone... More

Loved this place - if you have specific dietary requirements insist on speaking to the chef. He was able to make some of the best vegetarian food I sampled in the phillipines. It's cosy and warm, pricey but worth it.

It is a nice location. The staff are very friendly. The prices are ok. However, the food we tried was average, nothing special. They can do vegetarian food on request (was average as well).

L'Elephant Bleu is a cozy restaurant off the crowded beach. The food is excellent and the staff very friendly. Just expect to pay more than elsewhere in Alona Beach. We chose filet mignon steak of the extra menu items on the chalkboard and forgot to ask what the price would be (it didn't say on the board). We were a... More

The location is great if you want to be away from the agitation of the beach. The food is good and the staff is nice. Great spot to rent motorbikes.

We came to drink coffee, ordered one espresso and one cappuccino. First the cappuccino tasted weird like the did it with a syrup. Second, while we had our coffee one of the waiters kept offering us day trip and tour around alona beach like they do on the streets And for our last part, we asked for the bill and... More

We live in Panglao and we've visited most of the restaurants here. L'Elephant Bleu is definitely in our top3! I think this restaurant is genius! The food and service is like fine-dining restaurants have. But rest of the atmosphere and vibe is as we call it "the filipino way". Maybe filipino way with a slight european control ;) You get...

Since we're really fan of european cuisine we wanted to try this french restaurant in Panglao. As we reached the place we could not feel really enthusiastic of it cause it's lacking ambience at all and it's so close by the noisy road. But this did not make us discouraged cause we were too much curious and excited. Pity to... More
