The Oceana Restaurant which forms part of Hilton Malta Hotel is an exquisite restaurant that specialises in lavish buffet lunches and dinners. The way that food is displayed is a feast for the eyes. The variety of food and dishes on offer is vast. There is something for everyone. Desserts will drive you crazy...sooooo good. My last visit was for... More

The food was good, and the bread options were plentiful. The coffee was average, as were the waffles. I did appreciate the omelette station cook nodding along with a woman who was trying to instruct him how to do his job better without getting outwardly frustrated. But the price is a bit high. €22 for an average breakfast buffet is... More

Two old friends of ours wished to dine at the Oceana restaurant, Hilton Malta. Although we already dined there a couple of weeks before, we settled for the place and booked, and managed to get a nice table on the restaurant terrace. We were welcomed by a very friendly supervisor, Sarah, who showed us to our table and introduced Evelina... More

I do not usually give bad reviews to restaurants, but this was probably the worst Buffet Dinner that i have been to this year. Given that this is a 5 Star Hotel and the Buffet was 35 Euros p/p excluding drinks one would expect a variety of food stalls to choose from. The choice of food was a disgrace both... More

We don't usually go for buffet dinners, but due to wet day decided to eat in the hotel rather than venture out. This was probably the best buffet I have had in a hotel - there was a huge choice of canapés, soup, salads, fish, meat, pasta, desserts and cheese but all were of a good quality and served in...

This was an impromptu lunch for a special occasion - and did they pull the stops out! We wanted something off the menu, with which they obliged without objection and most charmingly. The main of gluten free pasta with seafood was well worth waiting for, particularly given the platter of seafood carpaccios with which the meal started. Try the cielo... More

My wife and I wished to spend some time together and decided to go to the Oceana Restaurant at Malta Hilton. The refurbished Oceana restaurant serves both buffet and a la carte menu so we took the latter. Being welcomed by a very smart supervisor, we were shown to a nice table on the terrace. Once seated, Mark, once again... More

Buffet Dinner. Amazing amount of delicious food. The spread of starters was never ending that we hardly tasted half of the items available. There was plenty of shell fish and other seafood, besides a whole variety of sushi, pasta and main course. And what about desert. So many items to choose from, including waffles with cream (my favourite), chocolate fountain... More

Enjoyed a delightful lunch al fresco (few metres away from the pool). The service was impeccable and the menu is a masterpiece.
