The place is nice but the staff is not that friendly. It's not responsive when you call them. The food and ambiance is good.

After reading good reviews we expected more. The sate was really poor and the beef for 940 pesos was not special. Service was also not good, they did not pay attention. Also the dessert was not available anymore because they did not ask us before and when we ordered 10.05 pm they said it was too late!

Went to Alona Beach but it rained as soon as we started walking to the beach. We ran and found shelter at L'Elephant Bleu, and we were glad we stayed there for drinks! The servers were very friendly although I think they might need more staff because the servers at the bar were also the waitstaff for the restaurant. The... More

Read traveller review and decided to try the vanila chicken. Was tasty and good for the money. My wife had Thai green curry dish which was excellent. Staff good and very attentive and even played with our 22 month daughter. Recommended.

​Friendly staff and really interesting menu. Would have liked to go back to try a few different things! The vegan burger with mango salsa was delicious. Good music and chilled vibe during the lunch time hours.

We came here having read the good reviews on TripAdvisor but we were disappointed with the food. The restaurant has a really nice setting, live music playing at night and all the waitresses were very friendly and smiley. Prices also seemed quite reasonable for Alona beach. However the food was just average. The calamari's batter was too thick and the... More

We visited this establishment three times during our stay in Panglao, for dinner and lunch. The service and food are good. It now operates under the name 'Bamboo'. Good wifi, covered outdoor seating if you would like to smoke.

After being in Asia for a couple of weeks you are starting to miss European food. This place serves tasty European dishes for a good price. The only strange thing was that the WiFi was not working because the bar wasn't open yet???
