The food here is just amazing. Presentation is superb and the staff are sooo lovely. The surroundings are just stunning and you get the whole feel of being in thailand. Each time we go to malta it is a must visit as this restaurant and the hilton hotel are beautiful.

The restaurant serves very good food and is at reasonable prices as compared to the London branch. Recommend booking to avoid disappointment. The place has the characteristic blue elephant ambience with lot of wood work, plants and a small pond with fish. The tables on the deck overlooking the marina are in high demand so best to ask for it... More

Two nights and many wonderful dishes. The chilli lamb was exquisite. A veritable tsunami of flavour and fire. Quite simply the best spiced lamb I have ever eaten. Oh and that Baileys milkshake was heaven. Impeccable staff with impeccable manners. Just joyful.

Beautiful Resturant at the Hilton, big portions and plenty of choice! Staff were great and couldn't do enough for us. We sat outside which was lovely as the setting of the marina in Portomaso is stunning!

Booked a table at 8:30pm for my wife and 8 year old son on a Saturday night in August. Whilst we would normally order Thai food for our son, we were pleased to be offered the Hilton hotel kids menu for our son and ordered a pizza. However this turned out to be a terrible mistake. After two hours, my... More

Both of us opted for the set menu, and we struggled to finish it off. Very nice ambience and good food. Desert was a bit of a let down. But on the whole nice dining experience.
