The food was very average, calamares for starter were nice, burger very dry and beef patty extremelly small. Fresh pasta with prawns had an odd sauce but prawns were cooked very well. I also ordered a margarita coctail which was a let down. Would give 3 strars but we saw an enormous rat passing by the fence which was not... More

From unbelievably good homemade pasta to exceptional service make this a must visit restaurant. As soon as the waitress spotted a mozzie the coils were straight out - if only other places were this good.

We came arround 16:30 and it seemed like they have just opened up. Had some hard time with the waitress because of her English skills, but in the end we received what we ordered. We ordered some cocktails before the meal but were told that we need to wait because there is still no ice. Had to ask to turn... More

L'Elephant Bleu serves amazing burgers, simple as that. We came back three times for the burgers: cheesy bacon and spicy burger with soft buns, juicy meat, and shredded cucumber. Can't really speak for the rest of the menu, since we only had the burgers, but I'd definitely recommend them to anyone staying at Alona Beach.

One of the best burgers and carbonara I've ever had! The prices are fine for the serving amount. They just need to improve their fans, chairs and tables. It should have better ambiance so it would match with the very good food they're serving.

Ate here twice and was really surprised to find such great french cuisine in the middle of the philippines. We tried the cordon bleu, vanilla champagne chicken, blue cheese carbonara and the dory fillet. All lovely dishes, try the creme brulee as dessert it's a stunner and real authentic taste. For us like a slice of home, having been gone... More
