Excellent food

Visited this restaurant for the first time. Had a duck which was cooked to perfection and my other half had a rib eye which was also perfectly cooked to medium as was requested. They also have an excellent choice of desserts. Will surely return.

We were quite excited to go here, after reading some very good reviews. We read a few reviews that criticised the lighting, but I think they must have gotten the Restaurant mixed up, because the descriptions were wrong and this restaurant doesn't even have an upstairs eating area, as far as I could see. For my starter I ordered the... More

I enjoyed the main meal from the specials options. The food was good and so was the wine. Service was good too, but only one other table on the January Monday evening. Some lovely options on the menu - I could return!

Not initially inviting from the street, the restaurant is, nonetheless very friendly and immaculately clean. Mote importantly they serve wonderful typical Maltese food including local rabbit which was very good. Good value, good wine. A very nice evening. Recommended.

Surely will visit again. My wife and I went there on Christmas eve and the service was excellent. Although the menu was a set-menu everything was above standard. Desserts are to die for.

Capistrano is open on Sundays for dinner. A lot of Valletta's restaurants aren't. However, I would recommend booking so that you have somewhere guaranteed. The food here was excellent and, as a vegetarian, I was well catered for. A pumpkin risotto which was a starter was increased to provide me with a delicious main course. I found the majority of...

We booked for 27th Dec ..there was a large party also but everything ran like clockwork.... Wonderful food...beautifully presented. Well attended by Malcom and everyone. Don't hesitate to go and you must have the duck and the crème brulee.

Having been caught out not being able to find a restaurant on Christmas Day before we made sure we had a booking well in advance. Well what a lovely way to enjoy Christmas lunch, with well cooked food from a well thought out menu. Traditional and alternative food was on offer. Along with the other reviews we enjoyed every mouthful.... More
