It was our 4th dinner at Blue Elephant. Food was excellent, with great value for money with the set menu. I would like to thank especially Kristof, our polish waiter that made our evening especially nice by its kindness and great attention. 5 stars to...him !More

I absolutely love Asian food so I couldn’t wait to try this Thai restaurant after a year of living on the island. The restaurant is simply divine. A wonderful, authentic atmosphere. It brought back many wonderful memories from my time in Cambodia. It’s just so...beautiful decorated. The food was fantastic! Personally, for us, we ordered the set menu and we believed that it was very large. We were very glad when they said we could take our leftovers back home with us as we didn’t want to waste it. The cocktails were also delicious. The service was superb! You couldn’t get such attentive servers, always smiling! Thank you for a wonderful time at an exquisite restaurant. We can’t wait to be back!More

We visited the Blue Elephant restaurant during our stay at Hilton, Malta - we had reasonly high expectations given the venue (and a bit irrational based on very good experiences from the Blue Elephant in Copenhagen - no real relation). Coming in we were impressed...by the decors and the ambiance of the restaurant. Our wellcome was slightly strained as the restaurant manager/usher was in a lengthy phone conversation when we arrived - but that can happen. The reason for the low score is the quality of the food we got. We started with a Signature Starter plate with spring-roll, dumpling and more. It all tasted of nothing - like really nothing. For the mains I got Sweet and Sour Pork, which would have been ok at a mediocre chinese street stand, but not at this restaurant, my wife had a sea-bass, which was ok, but not to write home about. To accompany this we ordered Royal Fried Rice, which had nothing royal, and nothing fried about then. When the waitress took our only half emptied plates out, she never asked if the food was ok, or anything similar. Needless to say, we are not going there again.More

went here twice whilst in Malta, the decor is to give you the impression you are in a thai village, it works and it is great as is the food and the staff. You can eat inside or outside, with the outside overlooking the marina

My wife and I went a few times to that restaurant a very long time ago and our last visit was really disaapointing.. it was expensive and barely good. even the staff was uneven. We went this time for my birthday diner. What a change!...the staff was perfect. the food was incredible, tasty, felt like a good restaurant in Thailand! The most noticeable point is how much the management made an effort on the rates. a set menu at 35EUR PP ... just flawless! no one can go wrong with that! and it is not only fair it is tasty good!! We will definitively become regular again. see you next time!More

We visited the day we got engaged and upon realising this, the restaurant made us feel very special indeed. The staff were lovely, the food was excellent and the interiors are some of the most picturesque I’ve seen. You really could order anything and it...would be lovely, I imagine. I ordered the fish cakes to start and a Thai green curry for main. It tasted fantastic and was very filling. I was hoping for a third course but I couldn’t fit it in! Great value and the kind of people who deserve your business.More

We went to the restaurant as we had some vouchers to use as it is a little above our normal budget. We were very surprised to find a 3 course set menu including wine and water for €35 pp. This was not only a very...pleasant surprise, the food and service were absolutely first class. We chose the vegetarian option and it was excellent lots of variet and perfect portion sizes.More
