Fodor's Review

In the old days, in 1974, Elvi Staines sold burgers from the window of her house. Soon she added a few tables on the sand under a flamboyant tree. Today, the floors are still sand, and the tree remains (though now lifeless and cut back to fit inside the roof), but everything else is changed. Enter through massive mahogany doors and you'll be tended to by a staff of a couple of dozen. The burgers are still good, but for dinner Elvi's now specializes in upmarket dishes such as shrimp in watermelon sauce or crab claws with garlic butter. There's a Mexican-themed night on Wednesday and a "Mayan Feast" on Friday night. For dessert, don't pass on the coconut pie. It's all a bit touristy, but we always enjoy Elvi's.
