We have been dining at Cyrille's for a number of years and it was, still is, and I can with great confidence say, will remain, our favourite restaurant, with Cyrille our favourite chef. Cyrille can cook anything...perfectly! We have tried all types of dishes, starters, main courses and desserts, everything prepared and served to perfection. I love French cuisine and... More

Fantastic. The fish is presented, and you are told how it can be cooked, you pick, and you eat an excellent meal. If you are a fish fanatic, then you shouldn't miss this place. The moule was superb. Cannot recommend enough.

We found this small restaurant in a side street off Republik Street. We were given a table outside. The incline of the street made it a challenge to keep cutlery etc on the table all the time but that just added to the charm. The waiter was asiduous in taking care of our needs. He brought seafood to show us... More

Happened upon Chez Cyrille by accident, just liked the menu and feel of the place. Lucked out and we were right. A local expat, who was eating there, claimed it is one of the best in Malta, and by the time we finished lunch we agreed. A local Malta white wine, homemade ravioli, tagliatelle with fresh scallops and a light... More

We had a fantastic lunch at Chez Cyrille. Fresh fish and seafood cooked with care and love. We will return when we are in Malta next time.

I've eaten here quite a few times with a number of visiting clients, colleagues and friends but having only recently signed up for a Tripadvisor account, last night's visit now gives me an excuse to pen a review. This is the sort of place a visitor to the city might never come across or might walk past without a second... More

We were squeezed in at a round table feeling a bit like elephants in a china store, but once we were seated, the wine was poured and the dinner served, it went from small to intimate. The cuisine is French, the quality high and the taste authentic. With a loud cook, the sound of pots and pans in the downstairs... More

The food was good, but the atmosphere was far from cordial. There was an undercurrent of tension between the waitress and a slightly bedraggled patron who we took to be Cyrille. The latter would emerge from the kitchen to berate the waitress, and fill up diners` glasses with water, then later have a full-blown argument back in the kitchen. Diners... More
