We always check out restaurants on TA before travelling and this was the top of my list to visit given the reviews. We were not disappointed. Having found a couple of our options already full one evening, we walked past and found a table was free here. The waiter was extremely friendly and... read more

We selected this restaurant based on what was within close proximity to where we were staying in Valletta. We searched the restaurant online and decided to make a reservation. From start to finish, the service was impeccable. The food was delicious, fresh, and well-presented. We tried the traditional Maltese rabbit, as well as the venison. The dessert was one of... More

We went twice to this restaurant and on each occasion the food and service were first class. It is reasonably priced and the portions are generous. An added bonus is the fact that this restaurant is open on Sundays while many others are closed. It is wise to make a reservation as it is busy and popular.

We discovered this restaurant by chance as it was near to our hotel and we were still recovering from the journey. The outside appearance suggested just another Valletta restaurant, inside recently refurbished, simple and stylish. The service was attentive and caring - the food was superb, fine dining at an incredibly low price. Book, go early or be disappointed as... More

Excellent food and efficient, pleasant service - I would particularly recommend the pork which was delicious, and my husband was pleased with his steak. We also enjoyed the home made desserts which were beautifully presented. Our bill came to 70 euros which included a mid range bottle of Australian wine, a beer and extra glass of wine so all in...

All I've got to say about this place is that the food is very good and the staff is efficient and friendly. Besides that, it's located in the capital city of Malta and so it has easy access by public transport. Highly recommended as prices are very reasonable.

We very much enjoyed our visit to this bistro in Old Bakery St (we were tipped off this was the street to go for the best restaurants). Presentation wise the food was incredible (Michelin Star level) and the restaurant has the feel that it's trying to be ultra stylish (but maybe a little too stylish for my personal taste but...

This restaurant was recommended by a taxi driver, and seemed to be popular with locals as well as tourists. Food was excellent, and service was very good, surroundings were OK - but best to book to make sure you are upstairs (entrance level) rather than downstairs.

When we ate dinner here, Capistrano was ranked #12 of Valletta restaurants. If this is number 12 then Valletta must be amongst the best food cities in the Europe. I've eaten att Michelin starred restaurants that would have to work hard to beat our meal on preparation, taste and presentation tonight. Never the less, I would highly recommend you to... More
