We went from restaurant to restaurant looking at menus to find something that would represent Malta as we toured the city of Valletta. Legligin was on a side street and down half a flight of stairs, but it had a tasting deal for 22.50 euros. Everything was great. We were brought about eight small courses of local food. It was...

Fantastic prix fixe tasting menu and a great way to sample typical Maltese and Med. dishes. Quite cheap for what you get (22EU per person, we ended up at under 60EU including a bottle of wine). Menu varies every night. On our trip, we had: • Bread and olive oil • Vegetable soup • Tapas - two roast veg spreads,... More

You get a wide selection of tasting plates of typical Maltese food - the soup, deli meats and fish were a highlight, but you also get good bread, cheese, rabbit, pork... You can only have the tasting menu but it's about 22 euros so good value. Service let them down; I visited on my own and they forgot me several... More

Please make the effort to find this restaurant. We chose the taster menu, fixed price to taste some wonderful freshly cooked food. There was too many to mention. All tastes with a local Maltese flavor. Value for money was excellent.

We found this Valletta gem while wandering the city's charming streets one afternoon. We arrived without a reservation at 9pm and were immediately seated by the charming and engaging owner, who was careful to enquire about food allergies or other dietary constraints (and one of our group indeed had a gluten allergy). Given there is no set menu this gesture... More

Located down steps in a converted cellar, Legligin packs a lot in a small place. Eclectic and vintage look with a hipster feel. Staff very helpful and relaxed. Five course taster menu was well presented, cooked and explained. Don't be tempted to eat too much bread at the beginning as the courses all add up. Meat was substituted for fish... More

I came here 2 nights ago with my partner, despite some dodgy tripadvisor reviews (Vera B245 what a low-life, what kind of person posts a deliberate sabotage on here?) but I'm glad I went with my instincts. We had the taster menu, giving us a variety of authentic Maltese food, (including rabbit) and everything was fantastic. We ate far too... More

We got there by recommendation from the hotel, but did not like what we got. This restaurant is very nice though, but they urgently need an other chef as this one can not cook.

Tucked away in one of the side streets of Valletta, you will find this wonderful wine bar and bistro. You might think...well, so what? What make this place any different to others? It's all about the food. There is no menu. You will get whatever has been prepared for the day. And the food keeps on coming out until you... More

We had the pleasure of stumbling across this gem of a restaurant when we visited Malta in July (sadly due to ill health I have been unable to review sooner). It was undoubtedly the best meal we had during our stay in both Malta and Gozo, to the extent that I recommended it to every other traveller we came across.... More
