Meals were superb, brilliant atmosphere, very friendly staff and incredibly reasonable prices for the whole package. That's why restaurant is always full and booking is recommended, but possible to get a table without reservation in early hours or in gaps for quick meal. Everything we tried was very tasty. I don't think anyone can find a better value.

Loved this restaurant, the food was amazing and reasonably priced. The staff were lovely too. My sister had the set menu which was very good value and they didn't sacrifice on the quantity or quality.

My husband and I were looking for the perfect romantic date night, and this was definitely it! After spending some time around in city, we made reservations for this special place. The inside was beautifully decorated and we visited on the night where the candles are lit. Such ambience for our getaway. The food was incredibly delicious too, much better... More

We went (unintentionally) on "Candle Wednesday", an evening when all of the tables are festooned with little candles. We were eating at the inner room (mentioned below) with the lovely furnishings and paintings. Strait Street is more of an alleyway, so you might need to work on finding this place. Worth it however; good food and excellent, unobtrusive service. We... More

We came upon this little gem by accident and had the best meal of the holiday at very reasonable prices. We did not have a reservation but would seriously suggest making one to ensure you get a table, it is a local restaurant offering good local cuisine with an excellent Malta / Gozo wine list. Worth a trip off the... More

Palazzo Preca was by far our favorite restaurant in Valletta. We made a reservation and were seated in the smaller red room with chestnut furnishing, which was very romantic and beautiful. The outside area was in white and didn't look as charming. The service was very good; the waitresses always came around to ask how we like our dishes. Their... More

Hence we had two dinners... More

Fresh whitebait, a generous portion and served with two forks so we could share. EU 8.50. The Penne Alfredo was very good, cooked correctly with a ham cream sauce. The main course portion was large and a starter size would have been fine. Rib-eye was good too. Helpful friendly staff.
