If you are staying at The Palace, turn out of the hotel right, with your back to the Salisbury Pub there is a street in front of you, 3/4 of the way down is the restaurant. It is advised to book as it only has around 26 covers and is very popular. The starters were inventive and very fresh, my... More

Great food and personal service. Easy to miss as up a side street. Well worth a visit. Local choice of food.

A family run restaurant, friendly atmosphere, probably the best choice here is fish, but on pastas they could be do better; recommended anyway if you pass by Sliema.

This little gem is situated just up a side-street from the beach front. Very friendly and professional servers that give a family feel to the experience. The food is absolutely amazing. Staying in Sliema? This is a must!

Found this little gem when out walking. Small place but very friendly and the Maltese cuisine was excellent. The Bragoli, the pan fired rabbit with garlic were excellent. As was there choice of fresh fish.

This is a delightful, small, family-run restaurant in St Vincent Street, a side road opposite the harbour at Sliema (near Sliema Ferries bus stops). The road is a very narrow, insignificant looking street with no other restaurants and could easily go unnoticed; luckily, however, there is a sandwich board on the corner, in the main harbour road, pointing towards the...

Lovely little local food restaurant. Excellent rabbit stew, and very good service. It is very small so would advise booking in advance, and like other posts say try not to sit by door as it would be annoying. Toilet tiny, but shouldn't put you off. Limited selection of food if you don't like red meat though.

Never mind we ordered something else, and then hey presto the electricity was back on. We ordered what we really wanted although there... More
