I have got to agree with other reviews that bought in food makes up a good proportion of the menu. There are a few good stand alone dishes but not enough to warrant a return visit. This needs to alter or this business will wither and die. A more professional approach needs to be adopted, especially with matters of finance... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful evening with plenty of delightful Maltese dishes at Leglinin in November 2014. They run a taster menu that we went with. They also have a wine with cheese option. We didn't have a booking but luckily got a table. I would recommend a booking if you are looking for a specific time. The... More

This is the place to be ! The place is cosy, very welcoming, and the food is absolutely delicious! If you want to discover plenty of Maltese specialties, this is definitely one of the places you should go.

Really enjoyable evening sampling a variety of Maltese food. Very rustic and great service throughout the meal. Wine was a little overpriced for quality but otherwise a great experience.

We booked to eat after a show at the Manoel Theatre, and even though we were a bit late we were glad we managed to sir down and eat. The restaurant itself is really well decorated outside and in, with a chic rustic look that creates a really relaxing feeling. Onto the food, which is why we were there! The... More

I visited Malta last week with a group of friends who are all meat eaters and visited Legligin on recommendation. I was initially apprehensive as all the other Maltese restaurants we had previously visited did not cater well to vegetarians at all but the staff were very friendly on the phone and said they would cook a separate tasting menu...

Great atmospheric cellar with a superb wine list. The tasting menu was worth every euro....every single thing you will eat here is delicious. Great service with many dishes carried straight to our table by the chef himself. A lovely end to a day in and around Valletta.

If you are prepared to put yourself in the hands of the chef this is a great experience with a tasting menu at €25 Euros which will test your capacity. We watched the single chef produce an array of appetising dishes in the small basement kitchen and were entertained by a not too obtrusive guitarist who we discovered came from... More

I had never tried a tasting menu before but this wine bar/bistro had so many good reviews that I felt I had to try it. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed and the food was uniformly excellent - I even ate the tuna ravioli and I don't like tuna. If you have food allergies, don't worry:... More

We were a party of 8, all of us thoroughly enjoyed every delectable course which were devoured rapidly! The food was traditional Maltese, as each course was served the name and ingredients were translated into English by our waiters.The staff were very friendly, and we were not rushed,as can happen in some restaurants, it was very leisurely, we cannot remember...
