We can not recommend Blue Elephant enough. A warm welcome, super atmosphere, incredible foot, proactive service and a special birthday surprise for my wife at the end of a lovely meal. A great experience.

Been there a couple of times and was never disappointed. Obviously it's on the expensive side but food is always great and staff are very attentive. The offer a wide range of dishes from different countries and ingredients are always fresh.

If you’re looking for a restaurant which is both decorated elegantly and serves food extremely well , this restaurant is the right place to be in. I suggest that you select one of the set menus and make a reservation in advance.
