It was not my first time at Chez Cyrille and definitely not my last . It is one of the best (if not THE BEST) meals I have ever had. The foie gras is the best, everything else is also great. I could not resist having the rib eye cooked to prefection FOOD--- I'm afraid that's words simply cannot do... More

Found this restaurant by accident, never regretted it. Langustines were superb, you should try it! We also had scallops with pasta,very good, but didn‘t match the lagustines.

We found this restaurant on our last visit to Valleta 4 years ago and it was first on our list for this visit - we were not disappointed. I had a wonderful fish soup to start, so full of flavour and with so many varieties of fish, each mouthful was a delight. My husband was equally complimentary about his calamari... More

We began and ended our nine days in Valletta by dining at Chez Cyrille's Cordial Restaurant. We chose it for our final dinner in Valletta having dined well at those among the top ten, and let me tell you, Cyrille's is the very best in our opinion, and we're foodies. Let Cyrille work her magic for you! We shared the... More

We came back to the restaurant 2 days later just to try that surprisingly mouth watering simple dish. You just gotta try it!

We stumbled across this place whilst wandering the streets of Valletta and went in a for a late lunch. GF was catered for and some of the dishes were changed to accommodate requirements. The quality of the food was superb, as was the portion sizes - make sure you're hungry! Also it is very reasonably priced considering the quality and... More

We stumbled across this small restaurant on Friday evening looking for a quiet place to have a light meal. In fact it delivered on a higher level. While we were outside looking at the menu what we now know to be the owner spoke to us and said it served very fresh local seafood. So we went in. She (Cyrille?)... More

We walked past this place on our way to another restaurant and we were interested enough to come back the next evening. We did not have a booking but were early and welcomed graciously. Absolutely great seafood expertly prepared. This is the time of year Malta harvests dorado ( ie mahi mahi). We tried unsuccessfully to order at other places.... More

I really enjoyed lunch at this tiny restaurant just off one of the main streets. The food is fresh and good value. I had the Risotto Nero from the specials board. This was the blackest Risotto Nero I have ever had, full of flavour and almost too much to eat. Delicious coffee.

We ate at this restaurant a couple years ago on our first visit to Malta and loved it so much we looked it up the second time. The chef had taken the frogs' legs off the menu but she still had some upon request, and they were as good as we remembered. We ordered the barracuda and sea bass for... More
