A small entrance into a wonderful location. A tasting menu so you offer up yourselves to the team to cook what they have found in the market that day. Choose your wine and sit back and enjoy. We had seven wonderful courses that defined local cuisine including fish and freshly made meatballs. Will recommend to friends who live in Malta.

The ambience is a typical Maltese house of character tucked in a quiet street in Valletta. The food is good, the wine selection is fabulous, but not cool enough to feel really comfortable in a heatwave during the night. Service and hospitality is very good. Price is medium range. Overall rating good.

This small restaurant is located just off Old Bakery st and looks very inviting from the outside. On the inside it is full of old world charm and shabby chic. We were shown to a table in the cellar room which seemed to be the coziest option. The waitresses were lovely and friendly and opitomized service with a smile. The... More

This is well worth a visit for a slightly different meal. There is no menu, instead they serve a taster menu (€24 pp when we visited) consisting of exquisite maltese food. They were still bringing out dishes when we had to admit defeat! The staff were friendly and really want you to enjoy their food.

Legligin is one of the few restaurants in Valetta open for a Sunday dinner. Inside it resembles other places we visited, proudly exhibiting its bare stone walls and lots of wine bottles. The space is rather small, but does not feel cramped. What most people seem to order is a set menu of traditional Maltese dishes. There are about 6... More

We were there as a family of 4 in July 2014, what an experience. We had the taster menu and I reckon if we there today they would still be bringing us food, small portions but very satisfying with many, many dishes, ranging from home made vegetable soup, beef olive to swordfish and rabbit, an eclectic mix wonderfully presented.

-- Great ambience - Set in a characteristic Maltese converted building. We were seated downstairs with candlelit tables and a musician playing the guitar on the steps behind us added to making the environment more relaxing -- At 24euros per person we were served multiple taster dishes - by the end no-one could eat much more! We also ordered some... More

We came over from St Paul's Bay for dinner in Valetta and ended up at Legligin, lucky us! The small restaurant is in the lower ground floor of an old building, fabulously atmospheric! The tasting menu had lots of variety, covering lots of more traditional Maltese dishes, including cold salads, quail, rabbit, sea bass, prawns and lamb. The lovely waiting... More

We came here after being recommended by our accommodation and wanting to try some traditional Maltese food. We were seated downstairs in this cute candlelit room with a man playing guitar softly on the steps. The setting was very nice and I really liked the mixture of crockery used, it felt like a nice and small family run restaurant. I... More

I originally booked to come here on Saturday night but arrived to find that they had a private function on. Determined to eat here, I booked for the following night and was so glad that I did. For €24, you get a selection of delicious regional dishes and all you have to worry about is which wine to choose (this... More
