“tasty but a tad overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Set in lovely Rodney Bay Marina, we enjoyed our crispy thin-crust pizzas. It's a little tough to pay twice the price for a Piton beer relative to the place just next door. Pizzas serve ~ 1 1/2 people and range from $38-70 EC which seemed a bit pricey.

“The best pizza on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

My husband frequent Elena's several times per month. The pizza is always crispy and delicious. It always amazes me that pizza of this quality can be had in St. Lucia. The homemade ice cream doesn't hurt either.

“Great Ice Cream But Need Better Staff!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

Elena's never disappoints, from their sandwiches to their ice cream. And I will add that the prices are great. I just have a huge issue with staff. They are constantly speaking over your ice cream, you can never get a smile out of them, and they're quite rude. I have seen some people just walk away just because of the attitude that staff display and couldn't be bothered.

“Good breakfast and WIFI - two for one!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

Finding good WIFI and brekfast at the same time can be a trick for mariners with a boat in the marina. Elena's fits the bill. A limited but sufficent menu provides American style breakfast choices with a French flair. Some would say service is slow, but I prefer to consider it relaxed. Great coffee and friendly staff povide a nice start to the day.

“The BEST pizza outside of Italy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

I am Italian. I've eaten my share of pizza. This pizza, baked in a brick oven brought over from Genoa, Italy is THE BEST I've had outside of Italy. The crust is light and the ingredients so fresh. The focaccia is just as good. It is also a great place to go for breakfast with Lavazza coffee served. The gelato is made with fresh ingredients. The restaurant is situated on the boardwlak of a beautiful marina with a great view. Elena's is a little piece of Italy in St. Lucia. Prices are reasonable.
