We'd strolled by Capistrano Restaurant and were intrigued by the video in the window of the chef at work. We later booked, and we were delighted with the warm greeting and service from the elegant waiter. We are happy to have experienced this restaurant during our nine days in Valletta. Our dinner was delicious and beautifully presented.

Small place decorated in a trendy way. Interesting menu and pleasant food very well presented. Service a bit slow due to the fact that tbasically there is only one guy doing everything in the dining and bar.....so when the place is full doesn't have the possibility to do his job well. But all in all good place.

The semi-gastronomic fresh food and the so nice and pleasant delivery man, everything was all-right and far away from touristic places too busy on week-end.

When we found our restaurant choices either booked or not yet open, we were pointed toward Capistrano - what a fortuitous find! We were impressed from the moment we entered the door by the very pleasant, personable and attentive wait-staff. And the food did not disappoint either! Innovative, fully-flavoured and beautifully presented, all at very reasonable prices. Already highly rated,... More

This restaurant was almost empty when we entered, but we were charmed from the beginning by the kind service and the quality of the food served. We had a home cured salmon starter, a local goat cheese mousse, followed by rabbit and sausage, and tagliatelle with salmon. The sweets very tasty. The Maltese Chardonnay (ISIS) appeared to be a vary... More
