Fodor's Review

Here is an island institution. 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 (lifeless now and cut back to fit inside the roof), but most else is changed. Enter through massive mahogany doors and you'll be tended to by a large and gracious staff. The Mayan pulled pork and other sandwiches are popular midday, and for dinner Elvi's now features upmarket dishes such as shrimp flambeéd in tequila or grilled pork with sorrel barbecue sauce. For dessert, don't pass on the coconut pie. The Mayan Feast every Friday should be on your weekend list. It's a bit touristy, but we always enjoy Elvi's.
