This is a very disappointing restaurant. This was our second visit and it has not improved. It's quite expensive for what it is and quite simply the food is boring. The only dish worth compliments was the masandam curry. Service is painfully slow too, nearly 2 and a half hours for 2 courses. Not recommended.

We went twice as a family. Both times the food and service was great. If you go for the set meal, there is a lot of food! But it is a great way to try a variety of dishes. We did that the firs time and then selected a few that we liked the next time.

Very good food in a great setting. Different twist on cocktails. Cocktails, wine and main course for two was 80 euros. A memorable evening.

We ate at the Blue Elephant on our last night staying at the Hilton, which was lovely. Really great service and atmosphere. Also a 3 course meal with wine, cocktails and water only came to £90 which is substantially cheaper than its sister restaurant in Fulham. We asked in advance for a table overlooking Portomaso Marina and this is what... More

The restaurant is is connected to the Hilton Hotel. Great if you want some something spicey for a change. Staff are very helpful, friendly and attentive. Not cheap, but nice for that special occasion,

The Blue Elephant has restaurants in 10 different cities around the world and our first one has been in Hilton, Malta - we had our anniversary dinner. I have eaten Thai food in lots of countries and although the food in Blue Elephant is decent, that is not what impressed me the most. The brand visualisation of Blue Elephant with... More

We decided to celebrate my wife's birthday at this restaurant connected to the Hilton Hotel. The place has a very pleasant atmosphere with a lot of plants and fishes swimming around, and good place between tables. The waiter was very service oriented - and had visited Lofoten! The food was very original Thai style - tasty and spicy if you... More

This was my second visit and it will certainly be my last. Whilst the service was good and cordial, the food was terrible. I did not feel like complaining there and then so I paid the relatively expensive bill and left. I would certainly not recommend the place.
