We had dinner at Blue Elephant on my husband's birthday - we last visited about 4yrs ago. The restaurant is beautifully designed with water & bridges making a lovely setting. We chose to sit outside and were quickly seated and brought prawn crackers whilst we perished the extensive menu. We decided on a set menu which gave us a selection... More

Visited the Blue Elephant whilst staying in a nearby hotel. We booked a table for 7pm and we were given one outside overlooking the marina. It was beautiful. By 8pm there wasn't any more tables available outside which goes to show how popular this place is. It was also very busy inside. The staff were really attentive and explained the... More

Absolutely stunning. The food is perhaps a bit overpriced but you pay for the overall experience and like I said earlier, very difficult to beat. The experience would have been even more positive without kids :)

Visited here towards the end if our holidays. Walking through the restaurant was lovely, through all the plants to our table outside, overlooking the marina. The service was brilliant - nothing was a problem and the staff were professional. The food was amazing - lots of different things to try - I was stuck for choice. When the bill came... More

the food was lovely, staff friendly and the environment a welcome retreat from the construction that seems to dominate Malta atm. I went as a birthday treat and wasn't disappointed. A little surprised that it wasn't more expensive, so that's a bonus! Thank you.

I visited this Hilton Hotel for my 65th Birthday. The Staff were so kind and upgraded us to a suite with cake and candies waiting on us when we arrived. The staff could not have been kinder. The suite was huge and looked out onto the sea and over the pool. In the evenings the meals were excellent and I... More
