Found it thanks to tripadvisor. If you didn't know it, you would walk past it. Very cosy little restaurant very near the main touristic street of Valletta. We had o.a. neonati, little local fish in a kind of an omelet, fenek, local rabbit dish and a risotto with leak and sage. It was excellent, as was the wine: a half... More

Ended up here with friends for lunch before flying out of Malta. We were all blown away by the atmosphere of the place, the amazing quality of the food and the service. Everything was perfect and Tonio treated us extremely well, even calling us a taxi to the airport. Food highlights for me were the caponata in the appetisers, the... More

Before our trip to Malta I had was very much looking forward to a trip to Rubinos after reading so many glowing reviews. The service was friendly if a little lacking in attentiveness. The waitress brought us through the menu but because of where we were seated it was difficult for my husband to look at the board to review... More

Rubino's is in a delightful and charming setting. The restaurant is small and everyone receives personal attention from the friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff. There is a wide range of interesting and delicious food, beautifully cooked and well presented. With very ample portions. The prices are very reasonable too. Fully recommended

No menus here - the waitress takes you through each of the menu items which are listed on a board. We had the fried goats cheese for starters which was nice, but perhaps could have had a better crumb to cheese ratio. For main I had the rabbit, which was extra tasty and eaten by hand. My wife had the... More

Went for lunch. Would never have come across this place if it wasn't for Tripadvisor. Very small (10 tables), with very nice ambience. Menu is a board on the wall, and everyting is simple and nicely prepared. Mains are app EUR 20, starters around 10 and desserts 5. Very nice wine list with many good, affordable wines.
