A welcoming family-run restaurant

The restaurant was fully booked for the first two days of our visit to Malta but we managed to get a table on the third day. The restaurant is a small Italian style place serving a mixture of traditional Italian and Maltese dishes. The food was excellent, as was the service. One of my daughters is... read more

I was so disappointed at this place: we had a table close to the kitchen and I saw how the cut open the pre-made tortellini package that you can buy in any supermarket (I ordered the ricotta tortellini w duck) and when the dish arrived - it was w chorizo, not duck. The other starter was the goat cheese Filo... More

We came upon L'Artist on our first night in Sliema and it looked good so we went in. Sadly they were fully booked, so we reserved a table for the following Monday. This was just as well, since when we arrived all the other tables were also reserved. This restaurant has clearly developed a good reputation and I am not... More

The soup has strawberry jam sprinkled on top and sounds weird, but believe me it's delicious. The Steak is cooked over a 3X flame so the flavour is seared in. If the wife wants traditional Maltese then this is as good as it gets. The owner will meet and greet you and it is in the center of the shopping/ferry... More

A friend and I go here nearly weekly... Order the filet medium rare, not sauce needed. Finish off your meal with the strawberry cheesecake! Love the ambience, service and the chef who comes out everytime to say hi.

We came here the last time we were in Malta, and wanted to see if it was still as good. In short, it was, if not better. The food is amazing, but what also makes eating here such a good experience is the host, who works the room very well, making sure everyone is happy and smiling.

Thanks to a 1 kilometre detour (never ask walking directions from a motorist) and a downpour following a thunderstorm, umbrella-less, we arrived at L'Artist utterly sodden and cold, like a couple of drowned rats. The staff were magic, helping us dry off and generally going the extra mile to make us warmly welcome. This was also our first taste of... More

Really good meal at this restaurant, lovely staff who went out of their way to cook me vegetarian options that were not on the menu. The atmosphere was great as well, you can tell this is a family business and they care about doing things properly and for their customers! Best meal in Malta!
