The best rabbit spag I have tasted. Very polite and friendly. Would definitely go here again. :) . When we was looking at menu outside the staff asked us if we were ok but didn't hassle us to enter which was nice. They would accommodate for fussy eaters and change orders if ness. Vey good for all the family and... More

The place was highly praised in our guidebook and looked inviting when we arrived on 18.6.2014 for an early dinner. It smelled mouthwatering from the kitchen so we were looking forward to a lovely family-dinner. Asking for a table for 4 in the almost empty restaurant at 7:15pm we were denied entrance as we were told by the waiter that... More

Having been to this restaurant a few times now I would call it a good Indian restaurant; however that is just based on the type of food I like and order! If you like Arabic dishes you may call this an Arabic restaurant first, serving Indian dishes! What ever food you prefer this is a good place to find it.... More

I have been going to this restaurant for a few years and I'm never left disappointed. The food is always tasty, the staff are always really nice and it is a little gem in one of the back streets of Valletta.

Stumbled across this place, slightly unassuming but thought we'd try it. They have Mediterranean dishes as well as Arabic and Indian dishes across the menu. We had fish cakes and grilled aubergine, then thali and tagine, all well presented and full of flavour. You can choose how spicy you want your dish. Great service, knowledge and excellent value for money.... More

La Mere was highly recommended by the locals to our apartment in Valletta. The men both had curries and were very impressed with taste vs spice balance. I opted for Maltese options and again was impressed with the combinations of delicious food!! During our 7 night stay we visited twice and thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the relaxed atmosphere! Highly... More

We found this restaurant via trip advisor and it does not disappoint. A laid back atmosphere and a good menu that has a good variety of Mediterranean and Spicy / Curry dishes. The Vindaloo was as good or if not better than anything here in the UK. If you like spicy then it's a must visit restaurant.

I managed to convince Mrs Bungee that whilst on holiday in Valletta, a visit to the local Indian was a really good idea. The interesting thing about La Mere is that it doesn't just serve Asian cuisine it also has Maltese/Mediterranean dishes as well as Middle Eastern / North African influences. It is quite an understated and laid-back restaurant and... More

I bumped into La Mere while wandering around Valletta just at the time I was starting to get hungry and needed to use a toilet. 100% accidental choice! The restaurant was very quiet (which I appreciated) and relaxing. The food wasn't to write home about but it was good nonetheless - I had the chicken tikka salad with mint yogurt... More

A very nice setting with attentive service but very little food for the cost. Selected Tagine Kharut and the marinated lamb was delicious but it came with a paltry helping of cous cous, a salad with a bitter dressing and half of a crisp/thin nan bread. This cost €17 which is high for a main course in Valletta. There are... More
