Nice atmosphere

Took my girlfriend there for our 2 year anniversary, greeted by very polite staff. The restaurant has a really nice ambiance and calming atmosphere. Not the cheapest however you definitely get what you pay for

Actually a very good place where you get really good that food. An extensive menu with something for everyone. The kids love to run around and look at the boats in the next door marina. Call for a reservation - especially if you want an outdoor table next to the marina.

I really, really hate going to St Julian's. It's overpopulated, noisy and the people are rude, stuck-up and self-entitled. One of the FEW good reasons for visiting it to go eat at the gorgeous Blue Elephant restaurant in the Hilton Portomaso. This is without doubt the most stunning restaurant in the Maltese islands, with its elaborate Thai decor. Still, decor... More

Been to a the blue elephant many years ago and felt like giving it another shot for our 11 years' anniversary. Emailed to book and received a quick and efficient response, so we anticipated a positive experience. The gripes first: Had some difficulty in finding the place. Perhaps because it's part of the Hilton (I'm told) unlike other restaurants at... More

The place is great, booth in- and outdoors. The staff is lovely and very efficient. Unfortunately the food is really tasteless. We ordered the royal set menu, so we really had the chance to taste a lot of the dishes. Unpleasant surprise that none of them where really good!!

I went here for my birthday meal when staying at the Hilton and it did not disappoint. Decor is beautiful and the service was great. I had the feast to share with my friend and it was huge! The waitress did warn us though! It was great to order the feast however as you got to try pretty much everything... More

Our Son And Daughter-In-Law gave us a gift card for this restaurant as they knew we were holidaying in Malta. Atmosphere in this restaurant is amazing especially when you are sat outside overlooking The Hilton's Marina. We went for the Thai Banquet for two. The food was fantastic and the service was second to none. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant... More
