We joined some friends who own a house north of San Pedro for dinner last Friday night. Restaurant was crowded so reservations are recommended on weekends -especially for larger groups. They had a buffet available but opted to order off the menu. My fusion chicken noodle dish was very flavorful and delicious but the big hit was a bite of... More

WE happened into this place on one of the first nights of our stay. We came back 2 more times that week. The food was out of this world.

The kid's food was ok, the coconut chicken curry was amazing but way too small. All in all an ok experience but not worth it for what we paid.

We ate hear the last day of our stay in San Pedro. I was so sad. Had we ate hear the first day I would've eaten here for every day after that. Even the simple dish of rice and beans was hands down one of the best meals I had while in Belize. They make their own hot sauce, and... More

Besides awesome food, the service is exceptional. We were serenaded with live classical guitar which enhanced our dining experience. We would have gone back the next day but they are closed on Sundays.

We had good choices here as Elvi's is a family run local restaurant. We had ceviche, calamari, local chicken, creole shrimp and tacos. Everyone was satisfied. I recommend.

Great atmosphere with the sandy floor. Fantastic variety of Mayan foods, particularly the crab soup, belizian beans, enchiladas, tamales, and on and on. Everything was first rate and delicious. My only criticism is I wish it were on the water so the outside atmosphere wasn't honking cars and buildings as the view. The view doesn't match the extraordinary food!!

Our party of 8 had multiple entrees, but it's impossible to say which was best. My husband didn't really care for the fish presentation (head on) but said that it was delish.
