We stumbled upon this restaurant whilst winding our way around Valletta's streets one evening and we asked a couple who had just left what it was like, they said it was very nice so we went in and gave it a try, we had never done a taster menu before and didn't know what to expect. We were very pleasantly... More

As an erstwhile fan of this restaurant it's a shame to write this, but they have over stretched themselves recently. Legligin was a great wine bar and ventured into food a few years ago. Originally, it was small tasty plates, but my recent experience was poor. Some of the starters were direct from Lidl packets (we all know, because those... More

This is another of Valletta's tiny bistros where reservations are a must. You come to Legligin for a dining "experience." It describes itself as a tasting menu. There is no menu per se. You're seated & the courses begin. You don't have any idea of how many or what. In the end we had 13 of 14. As we don't... More

Every so often you find one of those places where everything is perfect....the food, the service, the friendliness and passion of the owners, and the price! Go to this place - eat, experience, enjoy!!

We stumbled into this place tonight; they found a table for us without a booking. We told them we did not eat meat; they said not a problem, though they operate on a tasting menu system. They just substituted the meat for fish. By the end of the evening we ended up having an exquisite dining experience. Grape leaves, sun... More

We are very happy to have found this place. The food just keeps on coming (say when you are full!) the service is great and the quality is very high. Lots of locally sources ingredients and well prepared. We had the house red wine which was inexpensive and quite nice one it had a breathe. Overall I think my fav... More

We were very lucky to get one of the few unreserved tables on a Sunday evening in this cosy wine bar/restaurant. The staff were very friendly and the tasting menu was superb, with an excellent selection of wines available. There were many dishes, all explained by the helpful staff as food was served (as there is no set menu), with... More

Great Maltese tasting menu served here for 20 Euros each. Not many restaurants are open on a Sunday Evening in Valletta, so it worth booking this one in advance to make sure you get in! Lovely friendly service and good wine list.

As other reviews tell, the tasting menu was just great! Only minus for this dinner was that our evening cost 91€ for two persons and we paid with 100€ - never got rest of the money back.. I guess the waitress thought that 9€ was a tip...
