The Pink Elephant, also known as “The Pink” is on the edge of the grounds of the Gasparilla Inn. It is an easy, five minute walk, but the front desk can also provide transportation in the form of a golf cart ride. You’re across the street from the dock. You can’t actually see the water but the masks and fishing... More

Pretty little place with immaculate views of the green. Lunch was just as pretty and was good average tasting burger. This place is great for showing off with style. We came in beach clothes, next time I think we'd feel more comfortable if we wore casual but dressy beachwear.

This quaint place is to be done on the cheap. Nice outdoor seating that accepts dogs. The service was very attentive, even to our 4 legged guest. Our meal was great (shared a main dish) while the other person had an appetizer. The wine list was extensive. The best part was the dessert menu!

The Pink Elephant has a wonderful bar on the lower level which is very warm and friendly. We stopped in for drinks and dinner, and the service was excellent. The food was very good and the drinks were served exactly as ordered! Nice location on the island within a short walk to town and just across from the Gasparilla Inn.

A short walk from the Gasparilla Inn, the beach and they marina. Terrific atmosphere with several private rooms accommodating 10 to 100. The owner and chef are one and the same and that always means attention is paid to the food first. The meals was very good the device even better. The outside patio was great for the small wedding...

The bar downstairs is amazing. It's like a throw back to the old English pubs of the early 1900s....except plenty of fresh paint, cool art work and excellent plumbing. The food is very very good. The staff is very congenial and helpful. Highly recommend it and be sure to sit outside for a bight to eat.

We were staying at the Gasparilla Inn for a work function and had a dinner for 11 people here on a gorgeous Sunday night in early October. We sat outside and enjoyed the breeze while savoring the restaurant's well-prepared food. We were split into two tables (which was fine) as they aren't really set up for groups. We started with...

I frequent Boca Grande often but this was my first dining experience at The Pink Elephant. The details within this restaurant are beautiful; from the good quality signature cocktail napkins to the pink elephant that accompanies bar drinks. I was expecting much better quality food, but was disappointed with an average lunch. The server wasn't overly interested in us, but... More
