Please more veggie on a plate

Atmosphere and interior in this restaurant is great. So is service. Food was very good, but quite heavy - chicken with bacon, degustation of pork. What I've missed was some sides that would ease my digestion. Too little veggie and/or fruits. Also, I know it is premium location, but I had better... read more

My own impressions, following recommendation of a friend I also highly esteem in his culinary experience and knowledge. Entry into this hard to find cellar restaurant is life endangering for anyone above six feet. So might be the exit with a low blood content in your alcohol... Feeling within the two rooms rather claustrophobic, only two tables in the upper... More

Guze offers a lovely atmosphere perfect for a nice dinner with friends or a romantic evening. The food is excellent. Our party had a wide variety of dishes and they were all gourmet quality served in well-sized portions. We were very pleased with our experience and would definitely come back for seconds. Make sure you get some Maltese wine!

In the heart of Valletta, this tiny place was the best dining experience we had in Malta. The starters' menu was a winner for me, was hard to choose but I ordered sea bass carpaccio, which was divine. Everything we ate was great, although red prawn risotto portion was perhaps too big (Maltese like big portions). The prices were really... More

International food but with a maltese touch. Very nice place I strongly recommend it. Great wines and the food is carefully prepared. The location is a quiet and romantic place.

Sadly we were not welcomed at Guze so we can't critic the food but the service and attitude was unfriendly and unwelcoming. Not for family's with kids.

The thing is, if a restaurant demonstrates the full package consistantly, they need not worry about negative comments on this site that may influence public opinion about where they should eat. What I mean is that there has to be a lean towards the full package, no one can expect to get it all right every time, but getting each... More

Wow! That was a 5 star gourmet experience. Everything from the vine to the seabase carpaccio, tuna steak and finaly the passion fruit panna cotta, was delicious. Not to forget the very friendly service. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Malta.

We pre-booked here, and wondered why the bookings were so hard to get, and at 15 minute intervals. We understood when we arrived - there are very few tables here (I think less than 15), and there is no rushing people - we arrived at 6.45pm, and there was no second sitting for our table. Food was excellent. More than... More
