Okay, you can search high and low for places to eat. After several meals we knew we wanted to go to Elvi's as it was recommended by every local we spoke to. No disappointment here. The service was great as was the food. It's located...in the center of town and I suggest walking to it as golf cart parking may be limited.More

Such a warm and welcoming restaurant. We really enjoyed our first meal here from the amazing food and drinks, to the great service! We would definitely come back. This is a definite place that gives you a feel for the island. Lots of great choices,...even for my picky daughter. All the fresh seafood was amazing. Portion sizes were very big, only my teenage son finished his meal. We also got banana bread to start and we all thought it was strange to serve at dinner, but oh my goodness, it was so good! We wanted to bring some home with us, but they were all out for the night! Definitely a good pick!More

We enjoyed our last night in San Pedro with a great dinner at Evli's Kitchen. We arrived with our party of 10 with no reservation and they quickly put together a couple of tables to accommodate us. Our waiter Sean was great at making recommendations....They brought us a plate of the best banana bread with a piece for everyone and it was inhaled in 2 seconds. The watermelon limeade vodka cocktail was so so good, a little sweeter than I normally like my drink, but it was so good. I ordered Jennie's signature curry with chicken based off Sean's recommendation and I was not disappointed. I was a little skeptical of raisins in the dish, but boy was I wrong. The raisins added a touch of sweetness that made the dish. Great last meal in San Pedro. Highly recommend.More

And glad we listened a really professional establishment in the middle of a place you would not have expected. The food was excellent and the place was clean despite the dirt floor inside. Told anyone who we met on the island to go there.

It’s definitely a very good restaurant and I would recommend making a reservation. The food was very good and it is right in downtown San Pedro.

Enjoyed eating and having drinks at Elvi’s. Chris was our waiter and made sure we understood the menu. He provided good customer service and made sure we were not allergic to anything. Loved the watermelon margarita.

The food we had was delicious. We didn’t have a reservation but was seated anyway. Advice to anyone wanting to go, make a reservation for this wonderful food. Service was great!

We really enjoyed our lunch here! I got the chicken enchiladas and they were really filling and not that expensive. We were told that you can't come to San Pedro and not eat here - definitely agree! It wasn't crowded at all when we went...for lunch, but we passed it around dinner time and it looked packed, so if you want dinner you should probably get a reservation.More

Our favorite dinner on the caye! Elvi’s was a great experience from start to finish! It is located in downtown San Pedro and so fairly easy to get to with lots of little shops around. The service was fantastic and the food was amazing! We...had the street corn appetizer, Mayan dish and red snapper meal (the sauce was soooo good). All was excellent! They have great fish and local dishes. Notes - make a reservation because it is (understandably) a popular place! The back room is air conditioned and so request that if you need it, and there is a dirt/sand floor and so don’t wear your favorite shoes.More

The food is sooo good. I didn't realize I would need a reservation for dinner, but the staff quickly worked us in on a very busy night. I had read the reviews and knew I wanted to eat here. I was not disappointed. I had...the Mexican steak. It was cooked just the way I'd requested and the Pina Colada was lip smacking good.More

One of the best restaurant in San Pedro . We stopped by here first thing off the airport. Couldn’t wait any longer and we were the first one . They took our luggage and keep it behind their counter for us . We ordered almost...everything on the menu . From conch Ceviche, street corns , tacos , crab claws , the big fried fish . Everything was excellent and flavorful. They also provide free banana bread as a complimentary app and bowl of soap for hand wash at end of meal. Must ask for the hot sauce for all your meals. Servers was good to us and everything was excellentMore

The only reason I didn't give this 5 out of 5 is because not only was our wait twice as long as they said it would be and our food took a very long time to get to us. We were almost late returning our...golf cart on time but minutes. I appreciated I waitress apologizing for the long wait. The decor was my favorite of any of the restaurants I went to in belize. The giant, lit tree in the center was very unique and I loved looking at all the paintings around the restaurant! The dirt floor... different. Felt a bit dirty though as people likely kicked dust up while walking. Due to how late we were sat we skipped an appetizer, but they did serve warm banana bread slices which were a good hold me over. I ordered the pibil tacos which I highly recommend! They were delicious! Not overly spicy and enjoyed trying the 3 sauces that it came with! Think my meal was the table favorite. My friends ordered Mexican steak and dinner special that had a variety of fish for like $42 usd. The Mexican steak was good, cooked correctly. The fish dinner was okay but not amazing especially for the cost. The sauce was just not a good fit for the fish I feel. They do charge for water which are water bottles which was the only restaurant that did this that we visited. No time for dessert either. I'd recommend Elvi's for sure but put reservations in ahead of time! And don't have plans after in case long wait.More
