The food was great - Can I have a look at the kitchen?

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.

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...

We are regular customers and the food has always been delicious. We cannot say the same for the young lady at front of house who happens to be the owner. We were not aware of the no child policy and made a booking for lunch today. No one asked us or informed us when we phoned to make the booking.... More
