Hidden gem of Valletta

Saw great reviews about this restaurant, it was not a disappointment at all! Great food and service! It's abit expensive but the food is exquisite so it's totally worth it. This restaurant is slightly hidden but did not take me long to find it! Highly recommend it.

Want to splurge on a special occasion then this place is a must. It was the most expensive meal - E93, but we did have an expensive bottle of wine. The food was delicious, with shellfood pasta and a most lovely butternut squash soup, bread never stopped coming. The mains of salmon and steak both in amazing sauces and profiteroles... More

Been waiting outside for 30 mins since 530pm. Went inside at 555pm asked the chef what time do they open. I was told they open at 630 and fully booked already. Shown them their website opening time it says 6pm. Totally disappointed . Please tell the owners to update their website.

My husband and I visited the restaurant yesterday evening on recommendation by a waiter at Charles Grech and it was a very wise decision. The room is elegantly furnished and each table was adorned with candles which added to the whole ambience. The food was sublime from start to finish complemented by a delightful bottle of Maltese red, Melqart, with... More

Palazzo Preca restaurant is run by two sisters and both of them are exceptional chefs. The food over there is very good both in quality of the food and as its presentation. As the saying goes, the eyes eat first. They specialise in fish and seashells mainly but meat cuts are also to cry for.

Do take the trouble to find this charming restaurant ( just off the main Republic street) as its consistency of excellence never fails to appeal. For non fish lovers there's an ample selection to choose from, but it's arguably the exceptionally fresh local seafood and fish you should really go for. The raw marinated red prawns are such an amazing... More
