The food is great the staff are better. In four days on Koh Lipe I have eaten at Elephant four times, one breakfast, three lunches all were amazing and at reasonable prices. Their “save the planet (or at least Koh Lipe)” theme also appealed to me. Can’t wait for my next trip so I can go back.

My teenagers loved this place. It was cool-ish, had things on the menu they could relate to, in particular the burgers and curly fries. It was the only place I ate a salad on Koh Lipe as they claim to wash all fruit/veg in drinking water. Very clean, beer was cold. Sister restaurant Cafe Tropical - closer to Sunrise Beach on Walking Street is good too...but no aircon and it was pretty hot. We had multiple meals at Elephant and Cafe Tropical

A chill place with good coffee and good food. Slightly more expensive than your local places but i think cheaper than others catered to tourists. The food is around THB190-250 if you don't order dishes like beef burgers etc, which are THB300-350. Would definitely go back again, personally we enjoyed their fusion dishes (satay salad and satay chicken burger in the photo.)

Was amazing!!! we went for dinner and ordered hamburgers and a couple of shakes, the service was really fast the staff was very friendly. It is a bit expensive comparing thai prices but it is worth it! the food is delicious and high quality, the meat is soo juicy and the flavor is good. the place is very clean, I appreciate the details like they wash the vegetables with drinkable water and the ingredients are mostly homemade. highly recommended if you want to have a quality meal ✨

We can have lunch or dinner there when we would like to eat other thing than Thai food. The place is very cosy. The food is international and very good. The staff is nice and you can also have a drink , cocktails are excellent and you’ll always find a band singing and inviting guests to sing.

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere here, super healthy options as well as the usual comfort food! We even booked a wonderful day trip on a longtail here through their Pirate tours. We fished and snorkelled and then our Captain and his mate cooked us all the fish we caught on a deserted beach! I think it was the highlight of our holiday. So head here, eat and book a tour, you won't be disappointed!

What can I say about this beautiful place aside that it was THE HIGHLIGHT on my stay on this charming island in Jan 2020. Yes, I came for the tasty food (all vegetables washed with care in drinkable water so you won’t get sick), but what I loved most was their night music sessions where an open and friendly atmosphere takes all the space. Everyone is welcome to join in (I sure did). Thanks to the band and staff : Helen and Yaman on guitar and voices, Sunny, Belan and Benz at the bar, Dada and Jae beautiful and sweet waitresses. You helped me find where I belong. I’ll be back... Tonight in fact, (march 5th) As your sign at the entrance says, I’ll be “doing more of what makes me happy”. Being there again for the last part of my 6 months journey in South-East Asia, is most certainly one of them. Love you guys. Long lives Elephant ❤️.

A friend on Koh Lanta recommended this restaurant and I’m glad he did. There is only so much authentic Thai you can eat in a month and this place provided a welcome change.. I was going to have street food but my wife ordered a crunchy sate and sesame salad with fries! It was so good I ordered one too!! Live music from 8.30 most nights fills the place so get down early..

We had Jack's burger, crispy chicken and blue cheese burgers here and were all very impressed. Very good burgers! Menu made us think of the Hard Rock Cafe menu. Indeed a bit more expensive than other places, but still very affordable.

I was surprised at how good the burgers and the quality of meat in them were (and the special sauce which they gave us for free!). Truly outstanding on this little island. The staff was really nice and attentive, and the overall vibe of the restaurant is really chill and laid back. Good reggae music!

Visited Elephant Cafe at walking street due to the positive reviews. What a disappointing experience it was. The service was bad from the get go. The staff was more busy trying to look busy and was inattentive. We ordered the pizza and burgers and they were mediocre at best. The pizza was similar to store bought pizza and the burger patties were over cooked and dry. We could get more tasty and juicier burgers at other restaurants along walking street (The Steak House and Galley 29 Cafe). Won’t be back and would not recommend the Elephant to anyone.

We’d read good things about this place and so had high expectations. The hype is well deserved as the staff, venue, location, atmosphere and, most importantly, the food is SO GOOD! We came for breakfast and had eggs Benedict and a poke bowl, as well as a smoothie and a strawberry refresher, followed by some coffee. Everything was amazing - food was fresh and perfectly cooked, the staff were friendly and approachable and present when needed, despite the max breakfast rush. It is one of the most expensive places we’ve eaten, as we are backpacking on a budget, but the price is totally justified. Added bonus is they don’t use plastic for anything - so no plastic straws, bottles etc that seem to be a big problem on Koh Lipe.

Had a great final dinner here. Staff were friendly and their menu was really great. They have a bit of everything to satisfy all taste buds. We enjoyed a delicious chicken satay style salad, and a juicy beef burger. We also had some great cocktails too, which were really well priced compared to other spots on the island. Veggie and vegan options were really ample too. They also offer free wifi, and do not provide customers with plastic bottled water. Instead, they offer compliemtnary water from their water fountain, which I thought was a really nice touch and something other business really should consider offering. Some interesting live music was thrown in for good measure too. It's normally packed to the rafters, so they are certainly doing things right here. Thanks for a lovely final meal on Koh Lipe!

5/5 for food (when you want a break from asian cuisine), free water, atmospehere, cleanliness, staff. The only bad thing about this restaurants are ashtrays at every table. You can easily find yourself eating with your neighbour smoking right under your nose.

This nice little place is a real gem in the walking street. If you are up to treat yourself with something delicious next to the everyday thai food experience here is the place to go. From the very delicious chicken burger to the club sandwich to the strawberry pancakes - everything served within an instant and with a smile - you won‘t serve your beach body yet your soul.
