If you ever wonder which restaurant serves the best food in Malta then don't look any further, here it is. Chez Philippe serves the best beef filet on the island. The service is topnotch. They also have a really nice selection of wines. Better booked ahead.

I have been to Chez many times for business and couple night. I highly recommend that if you have a business lunch or dinner guest/s you make a reservation here and treat them o fine dining in Gzira. I was impressed with everything, even the decorations. Remember, call ahead!

Chez Philippe is renowned for meals which are prepared and presented with gusto. Menu varies from simple salads and pasta dishes to sophisticated dishes which are quite unique. Their gravlax as antipasto has withstood the test of time. Sweet menu is also quite original and includes some Maltese delicacies. Watch out if you intend going in the evening because restaurant...

I have eaten there many times but latterly, the management seem to have taken their eye off the ball and while the food is still acceptable, service and ambience seems to be going down-hill.

It would be easy to bypass this restaurant, given that it is situated in a less than salubrious location, however it is worth a detour. The ambience is charming, whilst we enjoyed a first-class meal made from fresh ingredients. The menu is tight and concise, which works well, and the wine list is well chosen and good value. All in...

A lush dinner for 2. I had a most delicious starter of roasted mushrooms and the most lovely seabass as main. Dessert this time happened to consist almost only of fritters this time though.. which I'm not fond of. Service is professional.

We went for dinner with some friends, the food was excellent, both the starters and mains were divine, I had a brie salad then the quail as a main, which were really nice. The desserts were all too tempting, we couldn't decide who's getting what, so we ended up ordering all 5 of them to share !!! delicious :))) ........ More

Had a business lunch, so some good light food to discuss over business matters. Staff really entertained us during the time will visit again.

I note a lot of good reviews here. They puzzle me. I went there on a day when it was very bad weather (a cyclone) over Malta, and lots of people had cancelled because they couldn't actually get there. So the kitchen should have been perfect, with full attention on the very few guests who actually made it there that... More
