A little gem!

We searched for a number a restaurants during our recent City break to Valletta based on former Trip Advisor reviews. The best for menu choice and value for money (& looking through windows) in our opinion seemed to be Capistrano, so we phoned ahead to make a booking that afternoon. We were not... read more

It was one of the best experience I had. I ordered stuffed rabbit loin. Combined with Medina Syrah wine was an amazing experience. All compliments to the chef as well to the waiter.

My fiance booked a table for us for my birthday and we had a lovely dinner. The waiter was friendly and despite waiting for a bit between starter and main, we really enjoyed our food. It was freshly made and served warm. They also, after talking to my fiance, put a candle on my dessert and sang happy birthday to... More

Capistrano was a good find. The menu was small but there was something for everyone including choices for non red meat eaters. Each dish was presented well and there were good 'specials'. Service was efficient and a surprise considering there was a full restaurant. Definitely a restaurant that should be tried.

The waiter was brusque and did not look at you, it was a most uncomfortable atmosphere. The food was excellent, but we only went there once.

We ate here on our first evening and had a delicious meal. However we like to try different restaurants so usually eat at a different place each evening. We booked one for our last evening for 7.30 but on arrival it was closed - very disappointing. So we went back to our favourite Capistrano and if anything it was even... More

We had dinner here last Sunday. We tried to book on line but this did not seem to work - we phoned to confirm. Just as well - a lot of people were turned away by the very professional waiter despite how busy he was. Food was excellent - my wife had the pork and I had the rabbit. We... More
