We went to elefanta in early July, and wow! A lovely location and amazing food and very fairly priced - basically the same as eating out in England. The only reason I have scored a 4 instead of a 5 is because there was quite a language barrier between us and the waiters so we only actually recieved half the... More

We were staying at an all inclusive hotel but always take the time to eat at the Elefanta we did twice on this trip. This restaurant is close to the Aquarium in the Isla Mall. The food is just first class and the setting by the water is spectacular. The staff are very attentive. This is probably one of the... More

We have eaten at plenty of Indian and Pakistani restaurants, as a couple and as a family, and Elefanta Indian Cuisine was top notch in flavor, portion, freshness, presentation, and wait-time. A reservation is highly recommended. The tables are in little huts on a board walk-porch that provide diners with a waterfront dining experience.

Perhaps we weren't hungry enough for our visit here so didn't appreciate it properly. We were a bit concerned when, as soon as we sat at the table, we were offered mosquito repellent. Whilst we appreciated the fact that we were offered protection, we were a little disconcerted at the possibility of being bitten whilst there - hence the rating.... More

Came to this restaurant last year and the good was amazing. Revisited cancun this year and had to come back to Elefanta, the food here is beautiful. Normally when you go abroad you can't find a decent Indian cuisine, but at Elefanta you will not be disappointed. The view where you sit and have your meal is beautiful, and if... More

Delicious Indian food although not very spicy, the view is amazing. My 2 year old had the lentils,I had the tikka masala both were delicious and the rice and naan are a must. Super recommended after a day shopping at la Isela. I recommend to go at sunset, the view is fantastic.

We visited Elefanta on evening and have to say this was a fantastic cuisine experience! The atmosphere was idyllic, with beautiful surroundings. We were greeted by very polite and friendly staff - we felt we were made to be like we were the only visitors there - nothing wasn't too much trouble. The food was excellent with a great menu...

We were staying at an all inclusive but opted to eat out one night. Restaurant is located in the Isla mall. Have eaten at many indian restaurants and this was fantastic, ranks better than any I have eaten in the states including DC and NYC. Fantastic views of the sunset (although the mosquitos do come out near the water). Ordered... More

Inspired on the culture, architecture and mainly on the Indian gastronomy, Elefanta restaurant was created. Bringing a bit of the magic and misticism of this place, in fusion with a modern city, the Elefanta Indian Cuisine concept was originated. With the service of our chef, Basant Kumar and other indian borned members of this team, we offer an exotic culinary delight, in a very authentic and special place. The restaurant has two tandoor ovens, typical from India, that brings to your palate the unique and exquisite flavors from our kitchen.
