Western out to find a restaurant and passed Capistrano. I was looking for rabbit as the Maltese national dish and was interested in their rabbit stuffed and treated in a variety of different ways. It was delicious. W had a prawn entree to share and then the other main was grilled salmon with delicious veggies. Finally the desert of the... More

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

We ate here twice on our last visit. We ate on a Sunday evening when a lot of the restaurants in Valletta are closed. The food was first rate, special mention for the pork, and save room for the desserts which are beautifully presented. The waiter was very attentive. the décor is a little bland but do not be put...

Arriving at the restaurant at 11hr30 for a mid-day reservation we toyed with giving the place a miss. Old Bakery Street is not easy to locate and is not in a very 'nice' part of Valletta and the small shuttered restaurant did not look inviting. BUT...it was worth waiting for.....excellent starters, interesting main courses and the chef wecomed our personal... More
