The food here is good and reasonably priced.When we went there was only one member of staff visible which we thought a bit odd but he seemed to be coping and was friendly and helpful.I know it's a personal preference but we thought the lighting was too bright and the place lacked atmosphere,it felt more like a cafe than a...

The two waiters working here were amazing, so polite, knowledgeable and make you feel as if you are dining in their home. The food was to die for, I had the rabbit which was superb as was the panna cotta. Well done to the wonderful chef as well. Can't recommend highly enough. ps Chippy you are a star.

Recently I've been at Capistrano Restaurant with my family and everyone of us were satisfied with the quality of food and friendly service. It is situated in the historical capital city of Valletta.

We ate here twice on our recent trip to Valletta and by the end of our second visit the wonderful food and helpful service had convinced us that if this restaurant was local to us in England, we would be regular visitors. We ordered tortellini, risotto and a pork main, all were superb. We also had two varieties of cheesecake... More

I contacted the restaurant prior to our visit and the excellence started there, Malcolm baked a wonderful birthday cake , personally decorated for one of our party. We all (12 of us) loved the food, it was the best we had on Malta, the staff could not have been more helpful and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Malta.

I was more then satisfied at the end! Price: I... More

We managed to get a walk up table on a Friday night. All 4 of us had fantastic meals, including local cheeses and fresh local fish. All meals were prepared with style and class. Service was friendly and helpful. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This is a good restaurant. It's problem is a shortage of staff and a shortage of food. There is a single waiter/mc with a keen if ironic sense of humour (he needs it) and possibly only one person in the kitchen. Food takes a long time to arrive (this is based on 2 visits months apart). When it arrives it... More

Made a booking based on Trip Advisor reviews and glad we went - food was amazing! We skipped a starter and were treated to the most refreshing chilled melon soup accompanied by bruschetta. Restaurant handily does half bottles of wine at reasonable prices as it was our last night and we knew we'd struggle to drink a full bottle between... More
