We discovered this restaurant when we got lost. Tucked away in a side street this Palazzo serves excellent food at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly and efficient and made us feel very welcome. We booked our table for a second visit while paying for our first - personally I would visit Valletta again just to be able to eat... More

Quality food, wine and service. Actually allow you to taste the wine before pouring for the other diners, and don't start clearing plates away until everyone has finished (unlike some other establishments in Valletta!).

Having researched some restaurants on TA before we went, we were really pleased to get a reservation here - it was our favourite of the holiday. Everything was just perfect! Warm friendly welcome from all staff, massive wine list - good choice on menu plus various specials, complimentary appetizer and after dinner limoncello, and all food was delicious and well... More

We wish we had found this place earlier in our holiday! This restaurant has a relaxing friendly ambience. Service is prompt but you do not feel rushed. Delicious specials of the day or a la carte selection is great. Thoroughly enjoyed my sea bass with veg not the usual chips and salad! And very reasonable at only 16 euros! Go... More

Specialized in fish, not only local. Great service, comfortable place to be. For my taste some if the fish i ate were bit dry - sand in razor clams, which is sadly not too uncommon in restaurants. All in all three would still be a bit too low - rest of the company enjoyed their disges greatly.

I'm resident in Malta since 3 years ago and I had hear great opinions about Palazzo Preca. I has been there last week and It was amazing. The service, food, atmosphere and everything. I has been at differents restaurants in Valleta but since now I will go just to Palazzo Preca, It's the best opction.

This restaurant is a good stay for your average evening in Valetta when you want to avoid The touristy things on the town squares. The food is good with big portions, the prices are very reasonable.
