We were concerned with the 'all things to all men' aspect of the menu of this restaurant but we had an outstanding experience. Looking for north african food in Malta is surprisingly difficult so we took the trip into old town Valletta for La Mere. We had lamb koftas and a tagine which was simply excellent in a huge terracotta... More

Food here was excellent - top quality Indian cuisine. Be sure to book before you go as it is very small inside but definitely worth a visit!

My wife and I have been to this restaurant on a few occasions, during the winter months we dine inside, in summer there are a few tables outside..the menu is varied and focuses on Indian, North African and Maltese dishes so there is something which will appeal to everyone. Very reasonably priced and very good service.

La Mere restaurant is worthy to try when you are in Valletta. Nice food, especially the Halloum and Falafel salad, one of the best! I chose the Moroccan Tajine which was really delicious. The place offers outside tables which offers nice dining experience. Staff also was friendly and helpful. Recommended for sure.

My husband and I visited the restaurant having read about it on the Internet. We fancied some Asian food. The situation was pleasant, on a quiet street with outside seating. The staff were efficient enough. The food was very good. However one thing has put me off and we will definitely not go back. We ordered as a starter their... More

Thanks for your review. We are glad that you were satisfied with the taste of the food and also the level of service. We are disappointed to find out that the starter size and price was not up to your expectations however we believe it is fairly priced because for 12.50euros (which is the price for 1 platter shared between...

An interesting though maybe a bit odd range of options. But the concept seems to work and the menu seems manageable and well presented. Really expands the food choices in central Valletta. Service was very welcoming, friendly and professional. We went for curry options which were delicious and freshly prepared. The only criticism would be that prices were a bit... More

This is a brilliant restaurant. If you like food that is spicy and full of flavour then this is the place for you. Very good service.

This is an unusual restaurant, offering a mixture of Maltese, Middle Eastern and Indian foods. Unsurprisingly there is no shortage of choice in Valletta when it comes to Maltese food, but to those of us who spent a good part of our time in London it is less easy to find other cuisines served with any finesse in Malta. But... More
