The most beautiful restaurant I have ever visited. Amazing views and lovely food! Although a little on the pricey side.

The restaurant is set on the lagoon along with its partner Thai restaurant. The exotic location adds to the ambiance. We ordered a few dinner items to share with our party of 4. Each dish was perfectly spiced with layers of flavor. I would definitely recommend the garlic/cheese naan bread as a compliment to the meal.

It has become my favorite place in Cancun: the atmosphere is awesome. Service, food, wine temperature, view; it has it all. Prices very affordable. Don't miss this restaurant, please.

Do not overlook this restaurant tucked away in the shopping mall. You'll feel like you've been transported to the backwaters of Kerala. A beautiful spit to watch the sun go down and enjoy delicious food. A great menu with plenty of vegetarian and non veg choices. The sauces are excellent. We opted for a lamb curry and a chicken tikka... More

Surprisingly good Indian food. Maybe not exactly the same as what you get at the neighborhood Indian place back home, but better than average. Nice break from what you've been eating all week, plus is in a nice setting.

Nice setting on the lagoon. We actually saw a crocodile swim past us! Curry was tasty but don't expect the same as back in England. Pappadoms were different with fancy dips not your normal chutney and spicy dips and the nan bread was actually what we would call a chapati however the mains were very nice although if your a...

We visited Elefanta twice during our stay in Cancun. It is tucked away at the back of the Plaza La Isla. The food is slightly different to the Indian restaurants in the UK, but is gorgeous and reasonably priced. The seating is fab, you are not on top of each other and the setting on the water is lovely. I... More

Being born, brought up and lived in India for over 30 years, have fair experience of best Indian foods across cities and states. We must say this is one of the finest Indian food taste wise. Ambiance is water front and amazing too!!! Hotel staff... More

This is one restaurant in particular that is definitely worth a visit is EleFanta - it has 2 restaurants, Thai and Indian and you have the option to literally sit out on top of the ocean, it is the most romantic restaurant I have ever visited! I would recommend getting to the restaurant to watch sunset as it is a... More

Inspired on the culture, architecture and mainly on the Indian gastronomy, Elefanta restaurant was created. Bringing a bit of the magic and misticism of this place, in fusion with a modern city, the Elefanta Indian Cuisine concept was originated. With the service of our chef, Basant Kumar and other indian borned members of this team, we offer an exotic culinary delight, in a very authentic and special place. The restaurant has two tandoor ovens, typical from India, that brings to your palate the unique and exquisite flavors from our kitchen.
