My wife and I are on the island once a year for the jazz festival. We used to like Indian cuisine but got tired of the repetitiveness of the Indian food in the States. This restaurant reminded us of how good Indian food can be. The place was spotless, service friendly and eager to please, and the food fresh and delicious. We look forward to our next dining experience there!

We had wanted to try this restaurant for a while and finally went with four friends so we could taste a greater variety of dishes. The food was amazing, good portions and very tasty.

The only thing I would ask for would be "tasting platter" so one could try a variety of dishes on one's own.

I have eaten 3 times already at Elegance Café and I am a very picky foodie. It is definitely worth a visit. In fact, I am working my way through the menu whenever I visit because everything is so good. I tried the vegetarian sandwich (and I am a carnivore!) and literally ate the crumbs too. The food is light and healthy i.e. not greasy or fat laden, with authentic Indian flavours. Try the chocolate mousse. It is to die for. I LOVE the al fresco dining. The ambience is laid back and the owners are warm and easy going. I am happy to see that the owners plan to expand. I recommend it highly as a place for an easy, laid back meal.

Happened upon this restaurant by accident as we drove passed on the way to our villa each day so decided to pop in - result! By far one of best Indian meals we have ever tasted, and believe me we have eaten a few. Very few things on the menu where not appropriate for my coeliac diet which made the experience even more enjoyable. Lighter and fresher in taste than usual English versions but on the way less tasty. Will be back before leave the Island.

This is a gem of a café with excellent, tasty food and such a warm and welcoming staff. The owners always make it a point to say hello to each and every customer with smiles bright and warm as the sun. The atmosphere is cozy and the food is so delicious! My favourite dishes are the chicken biryani and the gulab jamoon and chocolate mousse desserts. The local juices are also refreshing and freshly made from REAL FRUIT! You also should try all the home made pickles that accompany your meal. The lime pickle and garlic pickles are my faves.
The dishes really are perfection without any pretensions and the prices are very affordable.
