“Local Food is the Star!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

This local restaurant in downtown San Pedro serves up local fare at reasonable prices. The conch chowder was a complete meal and one of the tastiest chowders ever. Chicken quesadillas were a favorite of our group as were the fish tacos. The dirt floors and old tree trunk add to the clean, local atmosphere where the service is friendly.

This was my third trip to the island and first time at Elvi's Kitchen. The food was fantastic, and the island decor was inviting and relaxing!

“Unexpected delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Curry Chicken is awesome. Happened to stop at Elvi's Kitchen for a light lunch. It was not crowded at this time and we atmosphere. We asked the waitress what we should order and she strongly suggested the Coconut Curry Chicken. She was spot on.
If you love curry you will LOVE this dish. Too bad that the two of us decided to share this dish for lunch because after I tasted it I would have rather had my own!!!!
In San Pedro this is a sure thing.

“Good Food, Nice Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

All of the locals kept telling us to eat at Elvi's. It's clearly a restaurant that is much loved.

We can see why. We had a great dinner there and, though the service and food were slightly better elsewhere, this was one of the better options in San Pedro for a slightly "nicer" meal.

The fish tacos were excellent, as were the conch fritters. The fried chicken was dry and underwhelming, especially compared to the FANTASTIC fried chicken we'd had at My Secret Deli earlier in the week.

They had a wonderful live musician on the night we went, and we really liked the atmosphere.

If we had to do it again, I'd probably try to go for the famous Friday night Mayan buffet, as cheesy as it seems.

Definitely worth being on a "must eat" list in San Pedro, though it wasn't in our top 3 or 4.
