One of the best restaurants in Malta. The food and the atmosphere is amazing I would fly into Malta to eat here. The appetizers are especially well done.

Best food we have had in Malta, and best service ad well. We had 6 warm mezze and hummus, and that was plenty. I would recommend specific dishes, but I don't remember the names. But let the staff guide you, if you're new to Lebanese food.

Food is great, seating is a bit limiting so you need to book in advance. Might be a little bit tight for bigger groups like were, but it was okay. Looking forward to dining there again.

I went here with some friends not long ago and didn't quite know what to expect... The service was great, from what I heard they are a family run business and this certainly reflects in the service you receive. They take great pride in what they serve and give great attention to detail. We didn't really know how to proceed... More

We have never had a bad meal at Ali Baba. Hani is a wonderful host, makes you feel special. His staff are excellent, very attentive. We normally don't order, just let Hani choose for us. He has never lets us down. All the mezze bits are beautiful, but his lamb & chicken livers are spectacular. They have a great selection... More
