Excellent wide variety of food that will appeal to all diners. Fabulous view so get there before sunset. They will come and pick you up which is an added bonus.

This restaurant is well located, lovely view and nicely decorated. Wait staff were excellent. Meals were nice but not breath taking. Nice music from a local chap. Worth checking it out though, lovely to see local wait staff who were charming and astute.

Paul M,

Our waitstaff at Elilai would like to thank you for your excellent review of their work. They have been well trained and also have very positive attitudes, We also take a great deal of pride in our culinary staff as we do many of the menu items from scratch. Elilai makes its own bread, ice creams and some of the pasta. We do love to cook.

Safe travels,

Chef Roy

Had a lunch at Elilai. The view was breathtaking, really made me feel on top of the world! The few different types of steak we tried are all juicy and tasty, and the bread are warm and nice. Enjoyable meal.

For our last evening we went to Elilai.
Well it was worth it. It the best restaurant in Palau for sure, but it can give a good fight for a lot of Resturant’s in different locations with no feelings of inferiority.
The place is well designed. Service was great and professional.
We took crab soups and Tom Yam. Both where great. We had wonderful Som-Tam and great pasta.
We finalize with real Vanilla ice cream (but it was little bit icee) and good macchiato.

Excellent food and attentive service. While you cannot see the sun set, you can see it colors reflected over the bay. They offer a shuttle service and will pick you up and take you back to your hotel.
