Great atmosphere, delicious authentic Thai food, terrific martinis, beautiful views. Was very warm dining inside. Recommend balcony dining for the breeze.

We had a bit of an issue finding the restaurant in the dark, but glad we persevered! Parking also is extremely tight and we had to have 2 guys help guide us out. We got there at a good time, as didn't have to wait for a table or very long for our food. Both our dishes were great - and we were pleasantly surprised with the bill of $32 before tip, for the 2 large entrees, one appetizer and one drink. We highly recommend!

Odd to have such delicious Thai food in Puerto Rico, and in such a beautiful location!! One of the most beautiful views from a restaurant I've ever seen. We are huge Thai food fans and this was absolutely delicious. The drinks were also very tasty! Our waiter was amazing, attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, and gave us great recommendations! Definitely recommend this place -- a MUST while in Rincon!

Elephants is always a stop when I'm in Rincon, and while I'm not a full time resident I do have a place here and spend about 6 weeks a year here. I have been a fan since they opened and continue to recommend them to friends and family who are visiting. The garlic chicken is a must have. I suggest eating family style and getting several dishes to pass around. They can adjust the level of spiciness to your taste. The martinis are inventive, delicious, and strong. The quality of the food is top notch. Service has always been attentive and very knowledgeable. This place is not easy to find, so bring their phone number or input their gps coordinates if you are unfamiliar with their location. Parking lot is across street, and very dark, so make sure you have a flashlight app on your phone. Well worth the trip, every time!
