Excellent value for money. The day's catch of fish was brought on a tray for selection, and all looked lovely. We chose a fish each and it arrived cooked to perfection. To round off the meal we had the mixed selection of desserts - really tasty. Good choice of wines and overall excellent value for money.

Palazzo Preca Restaurant After a flight and the hassle of airport security, it was a relief, on our first night, to find this restaurant. It was Wednesday evening and the candle light dinner occasion. The white table cloths glasses and cutlery shone and glistened back at us as we walked in, This; I thought, is going to be a great...

A group of four couples, we went to the Palazzo Preca with high hopes given the reviews we had read of the restaurant. Our hopes were even higher upon entering the restaurant and finding decor that was comfortable, understated and rather charming. While going through the menus, we were shown a platter with the fresh fish on offer that evening;... More

Yes, the food was grand and it's certainly a beautiful building with lovely decor. But somehow for us we just felt it was a little bit lack lustre, we didn't feel particularly welcome. I know other people have loved it, and in fact we went because of a recommendation from a friend, but perhaps we got it on a busy... More

The restaurant boasts Maltese cuisine, but I found it to be a mix of Maltese and Italian. Outstandingly simple and excellent value for money. NOT Michelin Star standard but it should be one of Michelin Recommended restaurants. The wine list is excellent and so is the service. Situated in the old (now obsolete) red light district, a culinary stop here... More

A traditional Palazzo from the Knights of Malta era, full of character and in good state of repair. Excellent food and wines, for both meat or fish lovers and vegetarians. Friendly service. Due to the nature of the building, stone walls and ceilings, a bit noisy. Recommended for a lunch or supper when in Valletta.

Simply this is the best fish we have eaten in 10 days of being on Gozo and Malta if you like the idea of being served the freshest fish with a lovely surrounding / with the local community this is the place to go... Great value all round

This was probably the fanciest restaurant we ate at while in Malta, but it wasn't over the top fancy. Just nice, though I was still comfortable in whatever I had worn all day. For the meal, we had peppered goat cheese salad, fish soup, lamb and rabbit. Followed by coffees and a limoncello apertif (on the house!) The waitstaff were... More
