Sunday evening discovery

Anyone who has visited Valletta will know that it is difficult to find a good restaurant on a Sunday evening as many are closed. With this in mind we found ourselves sat in the hotel bar scrolling through tripadvisor where we came across Capistranio. What a find! The restaurant is just up the... read more

Capistrano was our first gastronomical experience in Valletta, we went there right after arrival on a Saturday evening. We were lucky to arrive early, as the place was empty, but filled up quickly. Service was excellent and the food was delicious.

We had a delicious meal in this delightful restaurant! It is a must if in Valletta, the service is lovely & a good chance to try the local delicacies. If you don't like them here you won't like them anywhere. But definitely leave room for dessert.

We went for a long lunch and despite insisting we wouldn't have three courses, we couldn't help but try every part of their menu! The server was exceedingly friendly and welcoming. We couldn't decide which was better between the rabbit and venison, so you really can't choose poorly here, but the risotto starter is definitely worth a recommendation. Apple crumble... More

Thank you Trip Advisor for leading us to Capistrano!! Absolutely fantastic visit. Myself and my partner went here on our last night in Malta, and the only negative was that we didn't go on the first night so we could go back! We didn't book but it was quiet enough when we went in to get a table upstairs (steep... More

Octopus carpaccio, rabbit loin wrapped in bacon, rabbit sausage, crushed peas, deep fried balls of pork and MORE rabbit, followed by one of the nicest desserts I've ever had. Not to cloyingly sweet, just delicious. Thank you!

This was probably the best meal my sister and I had in Malta. We arrived via the ferry and came across this place by chance wandering up from the ferry. It happened to be the weekend of a feast in Valetta and they accommodated us without a reservation. Because it was so busy, things were a little slower. But to... More
