I had the fish broth as a starter and liked it so much that I subsequently tried fish broth or soup at two other restaurants and was not nearly as happy with them. My rabbit was also very good.

To me this is the best restaurant in the City. Set in an old palazzo, the ambience compliments the exquisite food and the service offered is consistently top notch. If you want one good meal in Valletta, then go to this place

The seafish was good, the restaurant was well decorated, nice candles and red clothes, but the waitress was extremely moody, unhelpful and made us feel unwanted. Very bad, bad service which spoiled our whole dinner.

Situated in a narrow part of Strait Street. We went (4 adults and a 10-year old) on a Thursday evening. Recommended by our hotel staff at The Palace Hotel in Sliema and I had already done some research and this restaurant was 'on the list'. We could feel the vibe as we were shown to our table. The menu had... More

We visited this restaurant as reviews on trip advisor were so good. Initially we were offered a table in what appeared to be a 'hallway' no atmosphere! We asked if there was a table inside and were offered one, this was much better as you actually felt like you were 'in' the restaurant. Starters were lovely. My husband had the... More

I have recently dined in this beautiful Palazzo with my family. We had a pot of mussels followed by king prawns and pan fried octopus. Everything was fantastic and with a good value for money (Portions, Complimentary antipasto and liquors). WIll definitely visit again and maybe try their pasta :)
