Description: The Blue Elephant is a tranquil oasis of waterfalls, luscious greenery and tropical flowers. Smiling, friendly staff and the best Royal Thai Cuisine in Malta guarantees a memorable visit. Fresh fruits and herbs and also tons of orchids are flown in weekly direct from Thailand. Blue Elephant Malta offers you the possibility to reserve your own special space in this magnificent restaurant. Here you can surprise your guests in a unique atmosphere in our private huts. Blue Elephant can cater for a variety of occasions such as: Intimate Dining, Private Parties, Wedding Parties, Conference Dinners and many others….From the moment you step in the restaurant, you will be transported to the lands of the East. The waterfall, the landscaping and the seating will certainly carry you far, far away. Savour mouth-watering delicacies prepared from authentic Thai ingredients and forgotten centuries old recipes from the Royal Palace.

“Beautiful restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

My husband and I ate at the Blue Elephant for our first wedding anniversary and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, service great and it wasn't too expensive (although pricier than other restaurants in St Julians).

My only regret was that we ate quite early (8pm) when it was fairly quiet and it would have been nice to have more of an atmosphere but that's a very minor point.

Would definitely recommend!

“Good on two visits terribly disappointing on the third visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We spent 10 days at the Hilton in Malta and we have always liked the Blue Elephant. On this occasion we ate there twice at an outside table as requested and the service was excellent. Really good food too.

HOWEVER on our third visit booked in advance with an outside table requested we were told flatly it is 'first come first serve' re outside tables. I explained that this was our third visit in a week and that we had booked in advance. The waitress was very blunt and said you can go and wait in the QuarterDeck which we did and came back down 30 minutes later. We were still offered just an inside table which we reluctantly took. The service from that point on went way downhill…no crispy prawn crackers on table, no smiles nothing. Really really disappointing. 70 euro for 3 main courses and one starter and poor service ? Not good enough.

“Fabulous”

Lovely setting and amazing Thai food. Probably our favourite evening of the holiday. Cocktails by the sea and delicious food. Would definitely return and recommend.
