A Picturesque, charming, old-world ambiance! As you delight yourself with a visit to Pink Elephant, you will be taken in by its pleasing-to-the-eye appeal. I enjoy the booth seating but if you prefer tables, bar side, our outdoor patio, you will be elated. Every square inch is a delight. Brick wall, tufted settee, and the quaint old-world aura comes together... More

Lovely place with indoor and outdoor seating. Nice selection of starters and entrees for everyone. Kids are burgers, snapper was excellent (but small portion), delicious carbonara with clams and mussels. Charming place and good service. Not cheap however but most places aren't on the island.

Very charming inside -,reminiscent of an English pub. Know that if you split they will charge you an additional 10.00! I ordered a salad for dinner topped with ahi tuna. The charge for Tuna was an additional 10.00.There were 4 fairly small blocks with salad. The salad was sad. It tasted fine but could easily have passed for a side... More

We stopped in for lunch on a warm sunny afternoon. It was too noisy inside, we choose to go out on the patio and had a table with an umbrella. We had a nice cold beer to start and some very tasty entrees. Our original choice was to eat at the Gasparilla Inn but they do not serve lunch. they... More

We go by boat from our home Punta Gorda as often as possible. The 25 Mile beautiful Boat Ride through lower Charlotte Harbor and passing by Boca Grande Pass is only surpassed by great food that is offered by the " Elephant ". In fact, we are getting ready to leave our dock in a few minutes and spend the... More

Lovely dining room. Had early dinner and drinks here on July 4th. Hosts and Servers could not be nicer! Had more cocktails than intended - but the watermelon margaritas were SO good. My daughter loved the little pink elephants that came with all of our drinks.

Visited for a dinner and had a really good time. Despite not having made any reservations they were able to accommodate us and the service throughout was really good. Food was excellent, we both had seafood for our main courses. I particularly enjoyed the sea bass I had which was simply perfectly cooked. Desert was also really delicious!
