Small cosy restaurant with a great ambience situated in Merchant Street, Valletta. The food was excellent, a mixture of Arabian, Indian and Mediterranean, home cooked, delicious and hot! You could taste the individual spices. The service was excellent and the attention to detail by the staff was impeccable. I liked the idea that you could take your own wine if... More

We stayed in Valletta for nine nights in the beginning of December. Our apartment provided a list of recommended restaurants which were all close by. I emailed LaMere for a reservation and promptly received a confirmation. The owner and our server were very friendly and accommodating. We split a Maltese Sampler and an Indian Thali with lamb and chicken. Both... More

I'm no expert on Arabic or Indian food, but the staff was very helpful in helping me and my partner choose what to eat. The design of the menu made me smile as I love simple and original designs. The location is very cozy and in a pretty central place in Valletta. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Great restaurant on Merchant Street. Food tasted great, portion sizes were perfect, staff were friendly and prices were very reasonable. Also they do ask you how hot you want your food but be aware the dishes are hotter than average. I usually like medium and my boyfriend likes hot, however both were a little hotter than we were expecting, although... More
