I have eaten at the Green Elephant a few times when in Portsmouth. The food is full of taste, fresh and with bold flavors. They have a surprisingly good cocktail menu.

Excellent meatless dishes. If you are not a vegetarian you will be after a meal at the Green Elephant. The place is spotless and there is no residual odor from the cooking of meat. Friendly service and a good selection of draught beer.

What a hidden gem! The restaurant has a very nice decor and a creative vegetarian menu (no my husband’s first choice in dining) because he is a carnivore. Even he was impressed! I had the Japanese Eggplant which was fresh and the sauce — to...More

So sorry I had not replied to these excellent questions. There are parking garages easily accessible. They had not been delivering but not sure if any of the services do.

On street parking costs $1.75/hr, bring lots of quarters! Garage is a couple of blocks away, in case mobility is an issue.
