Me and my fiancé went there for our anniversary and all I can say it will defiantly be a regular. The food was outstanding from start to finish and the staff were very welcoming, what more do you want.

I can recommend this restaurant. The service is excellent and you're not left waiting too long for you food. The food is good and plentiful. I did find it a little pricey but not too much to complain

Visited the Elephant again and was treated to excellent food, good friendly service in a relaxing atmosphere. The menu has a great choice and they will do any combination you ask for even if not on the menu, like sea bass which my wife says is the best she's ever had! The place is a must visit and can be...
