Dining at Ali Baba is a sublime experience. I only recently had the opportunity of dining there for the first time, but it has fast become a favourite. From the starters, to the main, and all the way to the desserts, each dish is a feast on one's taste-buds, as everything is cooked to perfection. These people love what they... More

The food is truly amazing, from roast aubergines, to succulent lamb dishes, to a great selection of local and international wines, you have to try the amazing lebanese reds... The restaurant design is contemporary, the staff great fun as well as offering a very high service standard, truly they have set the bar high for other restaurants in Malta, part... More

The various tastes and authentic flavours from the mezes to the mains and excellent desserts to heavenly home made ice creams makes Alibaba one of the best dining experiences. Chef patron Hany is exceptional in the kitchen and as a host. Always looking forward to the next visit!

The top restaurant in Gzira and steps away from my front door and I never knew it. Honestly I have been 3 times and have only had the lamb shanks so far because they are sooooooo good. My GF has gotten several things and loved them as well. Very small place so reserve quickly.

What a treat to find such a wonderful authentic Lebanese restaurant in Malta. Our waiter guided us what to choose from the menu and it was all really tasty. If anything we ordered a little too much as we couldn't finish everything so we didn't get to sample dessert. The chef came to introduce himself, a nice touch. Service was... More

One of the best lunches I've ever had. It is a bit expensive yes but it's all worth it. The warm mezes are to die for and even the sweets. Can't wait to go again. Two thumbs up!

An opportunity to eat differently...through ordering different cold or warm meze dishes and share with your guests on the table. We ordered like 7 warm meze dishes, including aromatic lamb sausages and chicken, pistachios and ginger sausages - all home made. Marinated lamb tenderloins, marinated chicken livers, and dried chickpeas paste are to die for. It was more than enough... More

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.
