Went to eat at the Oceana restaurant with my family a couple of weeks ago. The choice of food is breathtaking! The selection of desserts were to die for! The service was excellent and the staff were very attentive. Good value for money, I will defenitly go back again.

This was not our first visit to this excellent buffet, but the first time after Hiltons refurbishment and first time for lunch. We were welcomed warmly and seated immediately (our only 'complaint' for the review was 3 of us being seated on a sofa, you can always ask for a table with chairs only or better still near the huge...

We’d eaten very well throughout our trip to Malta, sometimes fine dining and sometimes honest hearty country fayre. On our last night on the island we decided to eat a la carte in the Oceana Restaurant having spent six days in the Hilton Hotel of which it is part. A starter of foie gras, confit chicken and duck terrine was... More

Went for Sunday buffet lunch. The restaurant was crowded with big tables. The ambience was very noisy and chaotic. The food is abundant and most items are good. However, a number of food items were not labeled and the labels had no reference to which items contained gluten and nuts. Not all items that finished were replaced. As one would... 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
