Whenever I'm in Valletta, I swear by this place. Not only is a tastefully decorated restaurant full of charm and taste but the food is to die for. It's the simple story of spice, you can choose the Mediterranean route of gently spiced dishes, take a walk through a North African/Middle Eastern Souk or you can head straight for the... More

Went there with family.. A great variety of choice.. surely on the more affordable side for such a place with such food. Staff are friendly and take as much care of you as possible.

Mixing different styles in a restaurant isn’t easy to pull off well, but La Mere has it cracked. We were a family group of four and decided to have dinner there one evening because holidays don’t seem complete to us without trying at least one Indian style restaurant. We mixed and matched some of the different styles, albeit with a... More

I always go for the Indian options on the menu, cooked well, can be done to your liking with regard to how hot you want it. Decent service and not too pricey.

It was my husbands birthday and the restaurant had been pre-booked. I hadn't thought to book outside but when we saw the quiet street we chose there instead and our female host/waitress did everything she could to ensure that we got a table quickly as it was very busy. They were so busy they had run out of Prosecco so... More

Definitely the place to try something different from the usual fare. Has a variety of food to cater for different tastes. The beef kebabs were spicy and tasty. My wife said that the rabbit (Maltese style) tasted heavenly. Service was efficient with just the right waiting time - not too long but not rushed on the other hand. Ambience was... More

We ate at this restaurant several times this trip, having previously eaten here on past visits. The food was as wonderful as it always has been: generous portions, very fresh, delicious flavours and with a good range of choices, especially for non- meat eaters. The food is Indian/Middle Eastern and Mediterranean. There is now the option to sit at a... More

Thought we'd try something different to eat and saw this had good reviews. went there without booking and although they were fully booked, they managed to fit us in. We did arrive before 8pm and were told we had to be finished by 9.15pm as they would need the table then. This was not a problem for us but others... More

I decided to try out a new restaurant, so I decided to visit this restaurant with my family. I can honestly say that this is perhaps one of the best meals I've have ever had. The price is very reasonable, and the portions are just right. The menu also features a wide variety. The restaurant is very classy and one... More

You can bring your own wine! The food was outstanding. I had the Sagwala & my husband had the rabbit. It warps truly one of the best meals we've had. Got a table outside & loved City in the street watching people walk by. They had a Bolivan busker play beautiful guitar music as we dined. Truly a magical experience;... More
