I really wanted to like this restaurant but we were disappointed. I would say it's a good place to eat seafood but don't go if you want anything else. We ordered something and were then told they didn't have it. They suggested lamb instead so my partner ordered that and I had a marinière of the day's shellfish. The marinière... More

Very excited by our first venture out into Valletta we found this restaurant by wandering up towards the main Piazza. It looked quaint warm and welcoming with a small select menu of local fresh fish and also offering Gluten free options which swung our decision to eat here as my partner is Gluten intolerant. The restaurant had a single table... More

Dropped in on a lunch time for a coffee and ended up going back in the evening. We got there early (luckily) as very soon after, all tables were occupied. You can book, and in the more popular times I would advise that you do. A great atmosphere in cosy, but not too cosy conditions. The tables are placed with... More

Located in the center of Valetta (close to city gate). This small restaurant is always full and it's not surprising. The clients are regulars and also tourists. Very good food and service !!

Went there (supposedly French restaurant) after the teatre as all other restaurantsi n the area were full. Restricted menu with over inflated prices and surly service from a Spanish waitress. Small portions, uninterestinglly presented & rather tasteless. - The wine list "complimented" the evening with similar restricted choice and high prices. Pity because it was an excellent concert marred only... More

I selected Chez Cyrille after checking out the restaurants around St George's Square on the basis of its looks and the fact that it was more crowded than any of the others. And I was not disappointed. I was served what was probably the best piece of fish I have eaten for a good while, excellently grilled and wonderfully spiced.... More

We visited this restaurant and found the whole experience brilliant. The fish soup in particular was right up there with the very best I have tasted, in fact I cannot recall what else we ate I was so blown away by the soup. My view - if in Valetta it is an absolute no brainer you just have to visit... More
