Truly, I was certain we would eat well in Malta. I imagined something like Greece or Italy, Mediterranean food, light and full of flavors. Instead, we discovered water biscuits lacking taste, strange sausages and some interesting Gozo cheese. However, I never thought I could say that one of the best meals in Malta was in an Indian restaurant. To be... More

Two of the three main courses were very good . The Thalis are a great mixture of foods and you can chose how spicey you want it. If you are Swiss opt... More

I am glad we did as we were impressed with this little restaurant in the heart of valletta. The food was cooked to perfection and the taste was out of this word.... More

This place was recommended to us by a friend who had eaten there a few weeks before. After walking down the hill and then back up we found the little resturant (look for the "hungry" sign hanging down from the door arch). So pleased we went back to find it. We had the Indian option which was cooked perfectly and... More

Everywhere in Malta you get Pizza, Burgers and Fries. While we were walking during Valetta we found this lovely restaurant. The food is a mixture of Arabic, Indian and Maltese style.Very delicious food with a nice ambiente.

Having eaten a lot of Italian style dishes in Valetta, we were looking for something different...and pleased to say tried La Mere. Good and varied menu with plenty of veggie choices, excellent value wines (including many local ones), in an atmospheric setting.

As a lover of Indian food, I had to try their Thali. I had it with Palak Paneer and Chana Masala, both very good. The platter comes with really nice rice, tasty yoghurt cucumber dip, generous naan, crispy papad, teaspoon of hot chutney, and two more items; a salad which i didnt really care for, and an amazing creamy dal,...

Situated in the quiet street of Valletta, which makes it ideal for romantic dinner or for chit chat between friends. It specializes in Mediterranean, Indian and Arabic. Good food, service and value for money.
