Delicious local food

In this narrow street of Valletta we enjoyed traditional well cooked food. I liked the atmosphere, the nice service, and of course the duck I chose for dinner.

This place was recommended in two of our guidebooks and coincidentally turned out to be next door to The Pub which is also an excellent place to visit. The food was fantastic, the service was speedy and attentive and the price was pretty good. Also right round the corner from the Palace so really handy for lunch.

This restaurant is well located in the centre of La Valletta. The day I went it was quite busy and people had to wait a while to get a table - that's why I strongly recommend to book a place in advance. The menu does not offer many variety and it is overpriced.

I cannot stop thinking about this place. Situated on a narrow street off of Valletta's main square, Ambrosia embodies everything that is Malta. Make sure you ask for recommendations from your server as they are very personable and know what's great, what's decent, and what to avoid based on your tastes. After a delicious baked goat cheese appetizer I moved... More

This place comes highly recommended in the guide books, and with good reason. A fresh, varied menu which obviously changes regularly as it's only available on a blackboard! We had a lovely lunch- some of the best pork belly ever! And delicious desserts too- save room! It was quiet when we arrived but soon filled up so there was a... More

The decor was interesting, the staff friendly, but most of all the food was delicious. I chose a leek tart, with a poached egg and other bits and it was divine. The Cabernet Sauvignon purchased was extremely reasonably priced and delicious. What was more it was actually served at the correct temperature!.
