Miss Elma is a great place for seafood. Nice big menu to choose from, and the portion and generous. We enjoyed the service, food and the view. A must go to place when in Providencia.

We ate at Miss Elma’s 4 times during our 2 week stay, once just for their main ice-cream. The plates are generous and the food consistently delicious. Go for the specialties of Miss Elma, including the pescado dream and pescado with lobster sauce.

The staff at Deep Blue recommended Miss Elma, so we swung by one day. Wow! I had the Pescado al Ajillo, fish with a garlic sauce. The dish was amazing- a very delicate butter and lemon with garlic, but not an overpowering garlic. My wife...More
