Food was very good. Fresh fish. Good wine list. A bit more up scale than some of the other places. We had the octopus appetizer, fantastic.

There is something for every taste here but my reco is that you go with the seafood. It's always superb. I've never been where I just haven't been flat out impressed with each dish. The coconut bread they bring out first I absolutely crave. And the cute sand floors and wood interior is the icing on the cake for this... More

We tried the Mayan Buffet. It was over priced and over rated. Plus they completely monitor portions. I was only eating rice veggies and shrimp to start and was only allowed 3 shrimp even though it is all you can eat. The shrimp and rice pudding were great. The rest was executed poorly. It was the worst meal we had... More

If you are going to San Pedro, you must eat at least one meal here. My first meal at Elvi's was in 2002 and it is just as good today. The food is consistent, well prepared and the service is much more attentive then other restaurants on Ambergris Caye. One member of our group was served a completely different dish... More

I had the Mayan chicken wrapped in a banana leaf... it was OK. Dessert options were few and they ran out of coconut pie, it was flan or frozen key lime pie. I had the flan, it was overly decorated with a web of solid corn syrup and the flan itself was a small portion. My dinner guest had the... More

Don't fall for the reviews. We had many incredible meals in Belize (including in San Pedro), but this place put a screeching halt to our streak. We ordered the "street corn", which came room temp/cold. The coconut curry we ordered was nothing more than way too much curry powder and a can of coconut milk. Our side of veggies was... More
