We were delighted that when we first arrived in San Pedro for vacation, we were pointed towards Elvi's Kitchen. We were promptly greeted and then seated in the main dining room. We particularly enjoyed the sand floors and giant tree in the center of the room. Our server was very personable and made the experience fun. The food was wonderful but if you go on one of their Mayan buffet nights, a great deal of the menu is only available if you order the buffet. Prices are very reasonable and it is somewhere that we went to multiple times. Great food!

Among a myriad of choices, Elvi's impressed with friendly and great service, excellent food, and prices that suggested tourists and locals are all created equal. Easy to find in the very center of the town, Elvi's offers a good selection of Belizian dishes and seafood choices, a sampling of Mexican food, and burgers/sandwiches. Elvi's also is a great spot for kids, with a sand floor and choices to satisfy all ages. Most of all, Elvi's is CLEAN! Not always the norm in San Pedro, at Elvi's you can see the kitchen and feel the clean throughout. A great choice!

I had lunch there today with a friend. It was delicious. I had the lime soup and the pulled pork tacos. My friend had the seafood soup and scallops fritters!
Excellent service, very friendly staff. They took care of us right away and kept checking back to make sure all was ok.
Very good value for a great experience!

Right in the heard of San Pedro is one of the oldest and best restaurants on the island - Elvi's! It was bustling when we arrived and they were quick to accomodate our big group of 10 people. The appetizers roasted garlic squid, waseviche (wasabi ceviche), and crusted calamari were fantastic. For the main course, we had the sumptuous garlic-chipotle lobster.
The prices were a bit high, but on par with all the other restaurants.
Definitely worth the visit to satisfy any seafood cravings you have!

We went for lunch Elvi's for the conch soup. Our snorkeling tour operator Alphonse recommended it. He wasn't wrong! It is made with potatoes, another vegetable and lots of conch. The broth is delicious! The conch are not rubbery! Served with coconut rice. The official name is GOOD FU DI BACK! It is a great lunch idea!
