The most famous restaurant on Ambergris Caye is undoubtably Elvi’s Kitchen. From the humble beginnings of her Burger Isle take-out stand in 1974, Elvi Staine and her family have turned this delightful place into an International Gold Star Award winning establishment. In the early days, a huge flamboyant tree grew right through the palm-thatched roof, out of the sand-floored dining room.  Even through the renovations over the years, the tree still contributes to a cozy and comfortable atmosphere.  It has been overlooking diners at Elvi’s for more than twenty years.

Mrs. Elvia Staines, known as Doña Elvia, is the proud owner of Elvi’s Kitchen which has become one of the most popular and distinguished restaurants on Ambergris Caye. With their excellent seafood menu, their great service and wonderful ambience, Elvi’s Kitchen has become a favorite among tourists and locals.

Elvi’s Kitchen is brought to life with live entertainment from local artists on special Caribbean and Mexican Nights, as well as its Mayan Feast.  The restaurant is known for its unique setting and delicious food, but also for incorporating local music and different Belizean cultures into their service.
