I have been in Malta one week and it was the best place for dinner. Food is so amazing! I have never eat anything seven similar (don't take me wrong - I have eat ravioli. But they never taste like that)! Ravioli with mushrooms were amazing, and pork cheeks was delicious. Owner was also very nice and told us many... More

I am allergic to onions, all onions and I am use to getting a dry piece of protein once I ask if the chef can accommodate. At II-HORZA, I was immediately given several options that could be prepared without onions. Each course was a delightful surprise, perfectly seasoned. The menu changes nightly. It was a real treat. Can't wait to... More

We've been visiting il-Horza for the past 4 years and we were never disappointed. Excellent for business lunches, quiet evenings and also special occasions. Everything was just right! Keep it up!

This is a great restaurant. I introduced this restaurant to a few friends from Germany. When they returned to the Island, they insisted on returning .... with even more friends. Who can blame them.

HAd many nice meals during a recent 6-day but this was certainly the best! At first a bit annoyed as we came to eat there one night and the sign said opening at 7.30. We had heard such good things that we decided to wait out the half hour at nearby park and when we returned, we caught someone going... More

I've been to Horza many times & feel it's about time I write a review for it. The restaurant is very small, maybe four tables up a few stairs from street level, with another six or so downstairs. The food is incredible, so extremely tasty and very well presented. The owner Charles will guide you through and recommend the specials... More

Having tired of trying to find a decent restaurant on the front we headed back into town up the next available side street. As we walked up the road the smell of great food hit us and then a small door shrouded by a net curtain. We braved it and are so pleased that we did. Seated in the cellar... More

My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant for her birthday. The venue is situated in a quiet side street in Valletta. The venue is small, quiet and cozy with a romantic rustic feel. There are probably not more than 8 tables so booking in advance is a must. The choice of food including starters, main courses and desserts was... More

My bf and I decided to spend my birthday dinner at Il-Horza and it was a blast! From the moment I have booked the reservation, I knew it would be wonderful. The place is small and cosy; a good place for romantic dinner or a good chat! I wanted to try different dishes than usual; as a starter I chose... More
