One of the best restaurants on the island. I have to visit at least once a year when I am in Malta since I work abroad. Some might say it is a bit on the high side but I say it's worth the money. Very romantic restaurant and I love the cascade and river ambience of the restaurant.

From the moment you step in you are transported to a Thai oasis in the middle of Malta. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the marina in beautiful tranquility. The staff are so attentive, friendly and polite. Fantastic, crunchy fresh basket of slightly spicy Thai crackers delivered promptly while you browse a menus that has just enough variety but not so...

Blue Elephant has Really tasty food and great atmosphere! Try the lamb curry and the Mai Tai cocktail. They are both delicious. It is worth visiting and then taking a stroll in the St Julians Marina,

I stopped by this Thai restaurant while staying in a nearby hotel, hoping to gaze out over the marina on summer evening. Two things struck me as positives--the efficient and friendly Romanian receptionist who was informative and helpful, and the Thai server who recommended a terrific marinated salmon dish that was superb beyond my dreams. The restaurant is on the... More

We went there for dinner on Friday evening and it was a great choice. The table location on the terrace was great, the service was fast and attentive. The menu was very comprehensive with plenty of choice but not too much. We will definitely be going back again.

The attractive setting of the Blue Elephant restaurant does not reflect the food we ate.. at least my 'speciality of the day' sea food special was very poor..my wife and daughter both enjoyed their food. My boys commented that even their dish, blue elephant meat special was not up to expectations. This is the second time I've been to this... More
