We were in Valletta for the first time and hoped to find a reasonable restaurant for our anniversary meal when we stumbled across Palazzo Preca. I wasn't sure initially of the decor and there seemed to have been few diners around. On reflection, that must have been because we were a tad early. In fact we were lucky to get... More

We had heard about Palazzo Preca via a blog on the Internet so were keen to give it a try whilst on holiday in Valletta. A beautiful building with lots of stone, candles, mirrors and beautifully laid tables. Complimentary goat's cheese, olives, pate and bread to start was enough before the main courses. This was something really to behold. The... More

We had a nice dinner with a combination of sea food and poultry. Both starters and main courses were tasty but not extraordinary. The desert tasters offered a good combination but we have eaten better tiramisu and better brownies... The reason for the score 3 is the combination of a bit lower than expected quality of dinner and the service... More

I had been wanting to go to this restaurant for some time as had heard good reviews and I was not disappointed. My wife took me for lunch on my birthday and it was great. I had the Neonati fishcakes for starters and Antoinette had the octopus. For the main course we both opted for the Spaghetti al mare. Delicious.... More

A word of warning for anyone dining here, you are going to be well fed which may affect the choice you make. After ordering our food and wine, we were given a complimentary starter; this was not a small canape or amuse bouche; it was a sharing platter. Mushrooms in herbs, a pot of bigilla (broadbean pate) bread and olives!... More

Many have written about this restaurant and certainly its reputation is justified by our experience. We had reservations but when we arrived it was proposed that we should sit in the main dining room near a table clearly reserved for a large group. I asked for an alternative and we were seated in what seemed to be a library with... More

Looking for a nice restaurant for lunch after a visit to the Battery in the gardens, we wanted more than a snack when we stumbled on this great restaurant in Straight Street we never knew was there. Fish soup to die for Lamb shank so tender it melted, great bottle of wine. This family run restaurant is well worth a... More
