After not getting a table at a nearby restaurant we went for this one and we were certainly not disappointed. May be lucky to arrive just before two large groups, so service was prompt and food excellent. Table upstairs, very good portions, fish cooked well and above average price. Puddings were excellent, in fact she is saying it was amazing... More

Was recommended this place and it did not disappoint. I am veggie and things can get boring but there was several choices and luckily for me they had my favourite pasta, pumpkin ravioli - amazing, so good we went back on our last night. The pudding are a master piece and very tasty too. The price was reasonable, though we... More

Me and my husband were out with a couple of friends in the centre of Valletta, heading to one of our friends' favourite restaurants for dinner. Horror! It was closed! But that did us a great favour because we decided to just chance going into the Capistrano which looked as though it might have a table for us. It was... More

The title says it all: the food is awesome and very artistically presented, value for money is very good and the ambience is decent. The latter could be better but for the price and the food you get, the overall deal is excellent.

This restaurant is on two floors and you need to be quite agile to manage the stairs down to the lower level! The food was reasonably good but we got the feeling that they may have been short staffed the evening we went as the one waitress on our floor was dashing about and seemed quite harassed, there were also...

Restaurant is small with nice atmosphere. The waiter was wery kind and polite. Unfortunately service was slow, it took almost on hour to get starter. Bruscetta was burned, salad - tomato and mozzarella was poor, bad, tasteless tomato and old rucola. Vegetable soup was perfect. Swordfish was great too.

Very nice experience from Capistrano. The food was simply perfect, we couldn't put to or steal anything from the service and food. Highly recommend if you would like to taste some special on a reasonable price. We definitely will go back :-)

First time that I visited this restaurant was about three weeks ago for lunch, whilst exploring the area. I was really impressed by the attentive service, the complimentary appetizers and the food that I ordered. I had a fresh seashell soup followed by a chicken Caesar salad. This was one of the best that I had eaten in years. Before... More

Superb food, great menu. Traditional food is cooked with a contemporary twist. Beautifully fresh and well presented an served. Best to book and check when open. The rabbit loin is quite a large portion but my husband did manage a sweet after. The prickly pear liquor was daunting but surprisingly good. Recommended

Capistrano delivered everything that we could have hoped for from an evening meal during a long weekend in Valletta - delicious Maltese dishes, great Maltese wine and friendly service. The menu offered so many tempting choices that we had to come back for a second evening to try a few more! A complimentary cup of cream of roasted pumpkin soup... More
