Palazzo Yummy!

The food was delicious!! The waiting staff was so friendly and they came to ask if all is well without being intrusive! A great variety of food. We stuck to fish and shellfish and it all tasted fresh and amazing. The place itself is set up very nicely. I really enjoyed the vibe. If i want to be... read more

We were searching for food around 630 in Valleta and met a couple from Liverpool who were looking at the menu having found it on trip advisor. Without wifi we were grateful to have the recommendation and went in we had a great table x food was fantastic. Johnny had the local Maltese bragioli and I had salmon x wine... More

We have visited Palazzo Preca on a number of occasions previously and have always been impressed. On our annual visit to malta we decided to return. Admittedly we had not made a booking ( but this restaurant seems unwilling to take bookings by email or website) we were seated at a table in the entrance. Clearly they take the view... More

It was quite a quick decision and we headed in.No reservation.We were quite lucky cause the place was quite full. The people serving us were very nice and whatever we have eaten was superbe. The seafood was so good and everything fresh.I recommend this place and I assure you that you will write a review that is a credit Thanks

This is a great restaurant in the heart of Valletta, with a tray of fresh fish wheeled around from table to table. We ordered off the specials - not least least because we saw someone go in with bags of fresh fish half an hour before we were due to arrive - and enjoyed excellent sea bass and tuna steak.... More

Just returned from a marvellous week in Valletta,and after trying several of the top rated restaurants I can honestly say Palazzo Preca was the very best out of an excellent bunch. From the quality of the food,wine to the very attentive service from the waiters could not do enough. I cannot fault anything about this restaurant,first class.

We went here based on reviews in trip advisor and were not disappointed. The food was very good and there was certainly enough of it. The staff were friendly and attentive and clearly knowledgable Not the cheapest restaurant in Valletta but not the most expensive Good value

On our second attempt at trying to get in this restaurant we were successful (the first time they were fully booked, so suggest you make a reservation). It was well worth waiting for. The menu was varied and a specials board was also provided. We had a lovely meal with a bottle of wine and it was very reasonably priced... More

The best dining experience one can have. From beginning to end. We took fresh oysters and scallops, so mouth-watering! The taste and how the scallops were cooked to perfection. After that we took fresh prawn ravioli, delicious! Absolutely worth a try.
