On my third visit to Legate's Den I was surprised to find it had expanded quite considerably and with every table filled. Be sure to book to avoid disappointment. If you are customers expecting a sit-down three course meal- you will be a disappointment to the special ambiance of this restaurant. Once you have chosen a wine (the special's board... More

The concept of this restaurant is really cool. You pay 24 euro for a tasting menu. You sit down and food starts arriving in ideal portions for a tasting menu and in an order that makes sense. It was mostly Maltese food, and everything was fresh and delicious. To top it off the restaurant is in a nice old "house"... More

By far my most favorite restaurant in all of Malta. It's a small family-run business and the service was of an excellent quality. The tasting menu was authentic and it was great tasting food. It was originally a 5-course tasting menu for €26 but we were lucky as the chef carried on with the dishes and we eventually ended up... More

We had an amazing evening with excellent food and service. We went in without a reservation but I would recommend making one as it soon got busy. The food is a fixed taster menu of local delicacies and all of it was delicious, there are about 10 courses so make sure you go in hungry. The service was impeccable yet... More

Not a whole lot to add to the already positive reviews. However, it truly is remarkable that Legligin is charging only 25 euros or so per person for this full-on tasting menu. No, it's not fine dining or high concept dishes, but the quality is very high, especially for this extraordinarily low price. Also, the service was warm and personable.... More

Great food and great service. Was there with a few foreign friends and it is the perfect way to introduce them to authentic Maltese/ mediterranean food

What a great meal and experience. €24 fixed price tastings menu. Reasonable priced and exceptional wines. The staff were beyond helpful, attentive, responsive, friendly and knowledgable. We must have had three different bottles across 8 different tastings. Fresh sausages in beautiful sauces, cheeses, pork jaw, a grilled fish platter, tapanades, and chocolate truffles. Highly recommend this for a couple who... More

Leglegin’s unusual, but excellent, business model is “you pay a fixed price (for food) and you get whatever they want to give you. We went as the place opened (at about 6:45pm) and probably didn’t leave until 10pm. Good wine, lots of courses (probably about 8 in total). The quality was excellent. Not haute cuisine, but really good home cooking.... More
