Consistently excellent

We have eaten here several times and have NEVER been disappointed. Waiting staff are very polite and efficient. The choice of food is extensive, including Indian, Arabian, Maltese and Mediterranean cuisines, and it's all really delicious. One of the best places to eat in Valletta.

Booked online and stated family includes a buggy for a baby and called from hotel to confirm it was received. The restaurant called back half an hour later to say that they have a no baby policy so cannot accommodate a buggy! Disgusting!

We had a very enjoyable meal at this small restaurant. The waiting staff were friendly, the room itself was attractive (stone walls and pretty wall lights) and the food! A mix of Indian, Maltese and Arabic items made an interesting assortment from which to choose. We all had sharing platters to start, followed by Arabic main courses. The lamb fillet... More

We were taking in the sights of Valletta and we happened to pass this restaurant. We checked out the menu and it looked good but we just "filed" it for future reference. However, we got the bright idae that night that we would try it out so off we trotted. When we arrived the place was full but the owners... More

The food is divine, & the service excellent. Antonella is kind & very helpful. While we were dining at La... More

As a Food Safety consultant, I always request to 'visit' the kitchen after a meal. I read some favourable comments on trip advisor and decided to try out this little chic restaurant in the core of Valletta. The ambience was very relaxing with very soft music but I discovered that this was possible because they have a policy of not... More

We visit La Mere every few months and we have never been disappointed. The food is genuine, fresh, tasty and cooked with care. The variety of food is comparatively extensive and the service is very good. I like the idea of 'bring your own wine' with a reasonable €4.50 corkage per bottle. Keeping the alcohol prices down goes a long... More

After looking all afternoon for reservations for Valentine's Day, this was the only place we found with available tables. We were pleasantly surprised by the food, service, wine selection. The food is varied from local, Indian, Mediterranean. Everything was delicious and prices great.

Thanks for your review. We are glad that you had a pleasant evening and enjoyed our selection of food & wine. May I also say that you were really lucky to find a vacant table, because being Valentine we have been fully booked all week but we had a last minute cancellation and you phoned to inquire just in time...
