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

Was on holiday in cancun and came across this wonderful Indian restaurant in la Isla mall.
Great food and surroundings was beautiful.
Staff was excellent and drinks was very nice.
Would definitely come back to this place again.

Service is not up to par with Cancun hospitality. The food is mediocre at best.
The best part of this dining experience is the location right on the lagoon. Highly romantic in the evening with its low level lighting. Plus a perfect sunset viewing location assuming you don’t get the table behind the tree.

While such great service as co-owned Thai that is adjacent to elefante, the experience was a real let down. We were looking forward to some authentic Indian food and the other patrons gave us confidence in a pretty setting. Unfortunately, when the apps came they were all lukewarm at best. We tolerated this but when our main courses came out also lukewarm, I had some concern that the food wasn’t cooked enough. Our waiter pretty much disappeared after the apps with servers bringing the food so he only returned after we complained. Finally, another chicken dish and naan came out piping hot but why didn’t this happen beforehand. The waiter gave us a 10% discount to try and make up for it but it was pretty ridiculous that he also added a 15% mandatory tip. No one did get sick and the food was okay but the experience wasn’t

Food was great. A bit pricey. They didn’t give us a table by the lagoon, and table wasn’t ready when we got there even though we made a reservation.
Overall a nice place for much needed Indian food :)

Lovely setting along the lagoon. We arrived at sunset so the colours of the sky reflecting on the water were very beautiful. We were seated in a private booth so it was quiet and peaceful. The ambiance was highlighted by the soft lighting at night. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We would definitely return on our next vacation in Cancun. We noticed there were a few mosquitoes biting our legs so the staff brought us bug repellant and coverings for our legs immediately.

Inexperienced waiter. Food quality is poor. Chicken was not fresh. If you are looking for tasty Indian food look elsewhere.

1st time. Wow a great experience. The setting is beautiful. We had a table right over the water. The servers were excellent. The white wine list is very poor. We found something barely drinkable that brought down the taste of the food. However we will bring our own wine next time. I would highly recommend this fine restaurant.
