We ate here during our stay at the Hilton hotel. Service is very attentive and friendly and the food was delicious. We ordered a variety of food choices across the menu. Scallops for starters, duck for main and pancakes for dessert. It was just absolutely delicious and we indulged ourselves in a culinary delight. Location is very nice. One of... More

An Explosion of Tastes! Part of a world-wide network of opulent restaurants, the Blue Elephant accomplishes its promise not only to travel its guests to the lands of the East, but it does it in style too. The very last evening of my stay at the Hilton it was arranged that I have a Tasting Experience at this amazing restaurant.... More

Wherever there is a Blue Elephant you won't be disappointed! Stunning decor with waterfalls, Koi carp lush foliage and a bridge! Fantastic service and exceptional food. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - Wife is allergic to eggs (so Pad Thai no egg and rice ) no trouble, not too spicy - no trouble. A must visit to... More

I believe this is the most beautiful restaurant in Malta. The main area being a garden with a bridge going over a body of water, with a couple of 'rooms'. From the moment you arrive, you are given the perfect atmosphere. The staff is very welcoming, cordial and friendly. Being a person that usually goes for meat or similar options,... More

Had dinner. Showed up at 2045 and had the to wait 45 minutes as we didn't have a reservation. It took some time to get started but once we ordered things moved right along. The food came and it was really good. The crispy red snapper was a little pricey since nothing came with it but it was fantastic! The... More

Quality restaurant, great menu and choice. Amazing food and we found very child friendly when asked to make simple chicken and rice for younger children to eat. This was not a problem at all. Great restaurant.

Only good thing is the ambience and location. Food is overpriced and not authentic at all. The Fried Catfish in Salad was only with onions. The Pad thay had two small frozen shrimps and no nuts, not spicy, too sweet and no lime. A bowl of jasmine rice it's 5.50 Euro crazy. I don't mind spending money in restaurant, but... More
