The food is delicious. Lots of vegetarian options. Nice presentation of classic cuisine. A perfect place to watch sunset over dinner. This restaurant has tables overlooking the water. Make reservations and enjoy some great Indian food.

A very nice Indian, food is tasteful and well presented. Definitely one of the better Indian meals I've had outside of India and the UK. The lounge music makes a pleasant change from your traditional music in Indian restaurants. Highly recommend...

A really outstanding experience - the food was magnificent (we love Indian and have tried it in many cities throughout the globe). We actually went back twice (and considered a 3rd visit) in the same week (that's how good it was). The food options were great - the service was outstanding - I can't say enough about how much we...

This restaurant may not be as widely advertised in the area but everyone sure seems to know it - including all cab drivers. We were treated to a lovely lagoon-side seating and enjoyed one of the finest Indian dishes on our entire trip here. The combination was too good not to recommend to other friends who have been there since.

The food was great. I would go again if I could. My only complaint was that it took awhile to get refills on water and the waiter never brought extra rice over when requested. I would still go back for the quality of the meal. :)

We had an amazing Indian meal in an amazing ambience. All food was cooked to perfection, good balance of spices and salt. The chicken was soft, the kofta was creamy and the daal was perfect. They add 15% tip to the meal so there was no need to add extra. All in all, a wonderful meal with good portion sizes... More

An amazing meal and view, will be back next time I'm in Cancún. The service was fantastic and so was the food - an amazing selection of vegetarian/vegan options. Try and get a table before 6pm to catch the sun setting as you dine - what an experience. Special commendations to waiters Jair and Magdiel.

Thank Madeleine M

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.
