Always a treat to return to Chez Philippe. Daily special menu may change but Lisa's and Kim's welcoming smiles are permanent! The fresh fish is delicious - save room for traditional Maltese "imqaret".

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.

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...
