This restaurant is situated next to La Isla Mall next to a Thai place. Decor is excellent and authentic. Sunset views are excellent. It was totally devoid of any customers. Food is of course not going to be authentic but acceptable

This restaurant is wonderful. All of the tables are private and right on the water. The food is very good and the atmosphere makes it a great place for dinner.

We went there for dinner 1 night, wow. What a beautiful setting over looking the lagoon. If you like Indian food, you will love this place. A lot of options, great tasting food, some of the best we've had anywhere. Definitely recommend.

One of the few Indian places I have found with nice ambience (I live in the US). Food was good, but what set the place apart was picturesque location.

Fancied something a bit different whilst in Cancun so sought this place out. It's situated in the middle of a mall but the ambience and set up makes it feel like you could be anywhere. It was actually the quietest moment we'd had in Cancun after nearly a week of being here! The menu offered great not so usual Indian... More

Located inside the La Isla Mall in Cancun, by the lagoon offers one of the finest Indian food outside India. During our 7-day stay in Cancun in October 2016, we went to Elefanta for dinner twice. The Veggie Punjabi Samosas, the Dal Makhani, the Dum Aloo Vanarasi, the Chicken Malai Tikka, the Veggie Biryani, and the Naan breads were outstanding.... 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.
