Great food selection

The set tasting menu is excellent and the wines complement it perfectly. Add a nice guitarist to it and the evening became really special.

Came here with friends yesterday, it was amazing! A huge wine list, but that's the only decision you have to make! A succession of equally yummy small dishes brought out throughout the evening, but not so much that we felt too full by the end. The staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Loved it!

We were struggling to find vegan/vegetarian options on Sunday in very non-touristic time (January) in Valetta. Galina from Leglegin accommodated all our requirements. Food was absolutely delicious!!!

On our last night in Malta, after a tiring day of touring and walking Mdina and Valetta I turned to my iPhone travel apps to find a place with good food that would not be too far to travel. I must have been in the right place because what I found only three streets from the city's front gate was... More

This place may not be for everyone. If you are expecting a normal restaurant with a menu where you choose your food you won't like it. Its not even a wine bar in the normal sense either. On the other hand, its great for an evening with friends. If you are a sociable diner you will love this place.

Just around the corner from the theatre, this is a great place to come after a show. Nice atmosphere and a great cheese platter! They also make truffles that are simply delightful.

We were looking for a relaxed Sunday evening in a wine bar and we decided to book at Legligin. First of all they should remove the sign stating outside that it's a wine bar as this might be misleading in a Maltese context. It's actually a concept restaurant or one serving an expensive range of some sort of Maltese meze.... More

We read some good reviews on this restaurant and decided to try it out. We did not have a booking but my mistake, we got a table !!! - We had a feast of 13 Maltese Meze dishes which we TRULY enjoyed. We went back for more two days later. Unbelievably friendly service, romantic environment (although I was with my... More

We have now eaten here twice. The experience is very interesting. The food is good and well presented. Don't eat too much bread in the beginning of the meal or you will not have enough room in your stomach to complete the experience. The wine is excellent. This dining style is best for groups who would like to taste several... More
