A fabulous degustation menu that covered the foods of the region. The seafood was outstanding and the chocolate truffles ( an extra) were exceptional

If you're looking for an intimate dining experience in Valletta that serves traditional Maltese fare, then this is it. Sit down, choose your wine and then based on seasonal availability, await your degustation. We were served something in the order of 8 or so dishes in both a tapas like presentation, and larger course, but with an emphasis on sharing.... More

Second visit, still excellent service and excellant food. If you don't know what you want to eat, just book a table here and all you need to decide on is the wine you want to drink! Superb value for money and really good atmosphere.

This restaurant is a lovely hidden place to enjoy great specialities of malta. Perfect for a romantic dinner after visiting Valletta and the 3 cities. We had the chance to enjoy a charming solo guitar while enjoying this Maltese experience. Highly recommended! A special thanks and congrats to the lovely team! Laure & Cyprien

We used leglegin for a private function last night. The venue was superb, the staff very helpful and the choice of food and drinks were excellent. We had more food than we could take and the drinks kept flowing until we left. Chris could not do more for us. His whisky choices are varied and for those of us who... More

Tiny little restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Loved how they tailor the menu around what you do and don't eat. They bring out plate after plate of delicious, rustic dishes for you to try. The servings are small, but you have so many different ones that we could not even manage the last one as we were so full. The... More

We only had to choose the wine and were recommended a lovely red wine and from then on were in the capable hands of the delightful team serving us with a smile, personality and... More

We went to this restaurant on a Sunday evening. It is a set dinner consisting of numerous courses and to be honest we struggled near the end but they were all very tasty.
