“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Just a few minutes away from the lively Alona beach, in a quiet neighbourhood, the french cook serves delicious dishes. Although their menu is not extensive, all foods are prepared with passion and love for taste and for a reasonable price.
The interior is not high class, but clean and cozy. The restaurant is not big, only 8 tables, and until now not crowded. But the good reviews will make the difference.
The time we were there they had a problem finding a suitable waitress, but that's only a detail.
We will certainly visit again when we are in Panglao.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

This restaurant is just a few minutes walk from Alona Beach. There is no scenic view but we were quite happy with the rustic setting. Food was excellent and reasonably priced; service was very good. It's a nice place for a romantic dinner.

The only thing I didn't like was the mosquito bites we had after our wonderful dinner. The staff placed a mosquito coil (repellant) right near our table. Though much appreciated, we just didn't feel comfortable with the smell of the repellant.

Still, overall experience with L'Elephant Bleu was very good. Highly recommended if in Panglao.

“Best choice in Alona!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant was a pleasant suprise in Alona which i consider as an overpriced and a tourist trap for panglao,fortunately you can walk 2-3min from the beach and eat in this place!nice atmosphere and music,menu has a few but very good choices,mostly european dishes since the chef is Italian,i tasted Cordon Blue which was very good.Although i
Prefer local food during my visits i enjoyed very much eating in this place and escaped the below average choices and atmospere in the beachfront.
