We came here for dinner and even though it was dark and one could not enjoy the view over the bay we could still see the shimmering lights on the horizon. The setting is ambient and chick. The cocktails were very good and the food...More

Elilai catered breakfast and lunch for ~25 people, for a 3-day meeting, and our group also enjoyed one dinner at their restaurant. The manager and staff were very friendly and accommodating, and the food was outstanding!

Must visit if you want to catch a sun downer over-looking the island. Food was OK at best, definitely over priced. Service top-notch. Good environment, mediocre food, stellar service.

Food was good, but expensive. Service was patchy. The restaurant at PPR is a much better dining experience overall.

Appreciated that Elilai picked up a cab to pick my other half and I up. But the restaurant wasn't air conditioned, which made for a hot and humid meal. Their terrace is located just above a somewhat busy street, and isn't for those afraid of...More

Wonderful dinner with two other couples. The restaurant picked us up at Palau Pacific Resort, and returned us home afterwards. We met the chef who deserves high praise for his creative appetizers, entree and desserts. You sit on a high balcony overlooking the island of...More
