We went to the resturtant as we where staying in the Hilton.
The evening was a taster buffet evening. The whole evening was really nice.
The range of food was fabulous. I thought the resturant because of its size. lacked atmosphrere. and was more of a canteen feel.
However, the food was good but the drinks are expensive, but this is the Hilton!

Dear Stuart C,
Thank you for your review of our Oceana restaurant. We greatly appreciate your kind comments regarding our buffet offering however we are also disappointed that your overall impression of the restaurant is not 100% favourable.
It’s our aim that each and every one of our guests has an enjoyable experience and leaves, willing to return. It would appear that on this occasion we have failed to meet, both our own aim, and your expectations.

Kind Regards
E Phillips

This place demands a five star rating purely based on the buffets, both breakfast and dinner! The breakfast one is great with a large selection of all the normal continental type pastries and cold cuts, fruit, yoghurt, cereals, breads, smoked salmon, cheese etc. Children have to be hauled away from the muffins, doughnuts, cakes etc! Then you have a cooked section with all the usual. THEN you have stations where you can get stuff to order. Eggs of all kinds, including brilliant omelettes, and waffles and pancakes. Wow!

While the breakfast one is good, the dinner one blows it away! They vary from day to day so it’s impossible to give a comprehensive description without writing a pamphlet, but it is true to say that all three courses offer a bewildering array of options, all of which range from “yum, that’s really nice” to “holy moly, that’s amazing!” I absolutely loved it! There is an a la crate menus from which I ate once. It was delicious, but I missed the buffet!

You can sit poolside or inside, both of which provide a lovely environment. The service is super efficient and friendly.

Not cheap but what a fantastic buffet. Eat as much as you want from excellently prepared foods. Mostly mediterranean but a nod to English roasts and and Japanese cuisine. This worked out as good value for money. Lovely setting including an outdoor, poolside location looking out to sea and inside live music which added to the ambience without being intrusive. Very popular with hotel guests and local people.

The Oceana restaurant is good and i could't fault their food..although it's on the expensive side compared to some other places you can eat in Malta if you walked down a few blocks..all in all a good place to grab a bite..
