We love restaurants with hot stone cooking so we were delighted to find Elbow Room. It was not very busy, which was a shame, because the service was friendly and the food very good. We had the mixed kebabs and the prawns, which were delicious. The meat was tender and the prawns were wonderfully tasty. There were three sauces with... More

We popped in for a couple of drinks after having eaten elsewhere, the smell from the hot rock cooking steaks meant that we put it on the list to come back for a meal another night. Had ribeye steak and marlin on the rock which we could cook to our own taste. Love the atmosphere in this restaurant, but it's... More

It was our last night and so we choose here to celebrate and we had so much fun. They bring you a hot stone and uncooked meats and you put them on the stone and cook it as long as you like. I hate cooking but I had a great time with this. Ceaser was our host and he was... More

Overpriced. Visited with friends. There was no tofu available with the vegetarian kebabs but no substitute offered either. The portion size was only just adequate per person, so not suitable for very hungry diners. Cooking on hot stones in a hot country is not for everyone. The entertainment was excellent and was the reason we visited. New group Fusion were... More

Went to this restaurant on a very quiet rainy night but the music selection was great, creating a relaxed atmosphere (Sade, randy Crawford etc). Had the mixed cerviche to start, a lovely selection and not too big a portion which made a nice change. The hot stone grilling was fun and very tasty. The pork skewer was especially nice. Fillet...

the restaurant speciality is cooking on a hot stone so your protein (meat or fish) arrives raw but with a hot stone so you can cook it yourself. served with rice and vegetables. Decent wine list and not too epensive. Nice large outdoor terrace for seating. Bill for two with a bottle of wine was c B$250

We had the fish special of the day and shrimp. You cook your own meal on a stone at your table. Both meals were OK but not exceptional.
