After a very good reception, the service performed by a certain Magdiel was of a very high quality, as well as the team in its entirety. A really excellent cuisine. An address that I recommend without hesitation.

Despite paying for an all inclusive hotel we frequent this Elfanta each time we are in Cancun. Once in a lifetime type views and atmosphere. Service has always been good and most recently we experienced great service from Joaquin!

Description
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.
