Good food and paintings

Restaurant owner is an artist and lovers of Miro and Picasso. Food is very good and the restaurant is decorated with paintings of the owner. Recommended : soup of the day

This place we stumbled on through walking Sliema and is a must. Everything is cooked to order and not pre-prepared, so if you don't mind waiting that little longer then it is worth the wait. Service, food & wine all fantadtic . It is a must if you get the chance

We visited L'Artist as a result of finding reviews online and were not in anyway disappointed with it. The ambience was good, the staff attentive yet personal, the food excellent. My husband ordered a steak and it was melt in the mouth texture, cooked to perfection. We would certainly recommend it, and intend to visit again.

We came here with friends for dinner. I only had a main course, which was the sea bass. Very tasty. Service was slightly slow but that may be because there were a few tables of 6 who arrived around the same time. Husband had the same main course. He ordered the homemade tiramisu was he said was good not great... More

Im a service freak. When i go out i want to be well served, given due attention, don't mind paying. This is one of those few places that give attention to their customers, they want them to return and enjoy their visit. Worth a try. Food is exquisite.

Friendly service. Starters were good but we both had the smoked duck for main course and were not impressed. It resembled more ham than duck. There was plenty of it though.

This was one of those meals where all of the courses were genuine Ely excellent rather than one or two. I can also recommend the local Maltese red wine that is served.

We stayed in March this year and found tucked away in one of the many side streets in Sliema this perfect family run restaurant. You are made very welcome and made to feel almost like one of the family. Very attentive service and nothing is too much trouble. We ate there 3 out of 4 nights in Sliema. That's not... More

We went to this place after reading good reviews and had a lovely meal. We both had the sea bass which was excellent. We plan to eat there again before we leave Sliema. It is a good idea to book.
