Superb Meal, Friendly Service

On our first night in Malta we had a fantastic meal here. At first, the restaurant seems a little off the beaten track, but once inside it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I would strongly recommend to all. Service very friendly

We were told that there were a few good restaurants on Old Bakery Street and as we didn't know any of them we randomly chose this one. What a delight and surprise! From the friendly welcome to the excellent, well cooked food nothing in this restaurant disappointed. Even though we had a humble lunch we were treated as old friends... More

Nice interior, cozy, fast and good service, good foods, reasonable prices. We had a three course dinner with starters, tuna steak and stuffed rabbit loin as a main and mascarpone-chocolate mousse for dessert. Everything was excellent.

We went here on two occasions the first when we had not booked we had to eat in the downstairs area of the restaurant which was too hot to be really comfortable. We booked to be sure of being upstairs on the second visit and we were one of only two tables. However the food was good and staff pleasant... More

When you travel, you hope that you'll find good restaurants (at least I do. Discovering the cuisine of a country is a part of discovering the country itself). In this respect, all the restaurants I had dinner at in Valletta were a good surprise. Capistrano is no exception. I had a very good pasta main meal with Maltese sausage. Yummy... More

We visited Capistrano on three occasions during our recent trip to Malta and each visit was nothing short of perfection. Food was divine and the atmosphere and service just spot on. The wild mushroom tart was a particular favourite as was the amazing pannacotta dessert. The chefs were very creative and we really enjoyed the clever food combos, food always... More

Very good food, indeed. Tremendous venison with carrots as well as salmon carpaccio as a starter. And yet I simply cannot give 5*****. Since there was only one guy "running the show" for the entire place (bartender, waiter, cashier in one person), it inevitably resulted in slow service.

Visited this restaurant twice during our week in Valletta. Excellent food, wine and service. The rabbit was wonderful. Excellent value for money. We ate downstairs the second visit as we hadn't booked so recommend booking for dinner.

Looked this restaurant up on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. The two waiters were very friendly. We had the sea bass and pork fillet, It was wonderful. Reasonably priced too. Definitely go again
