We visited Palazzo Preca in Valletta, Malta in late October for an evening meal. This was the best restaurant we visited in Malta, and the food and service were extremely good. Nothing was too much trouble for them (although we had not pre-booked), and the food was absolutely delicious. The staff were very helpful and friendly; even though I, embarrassingly,... More

This is a lovely family run restaurant in a spectacular historic building in Valletta. There's always an excellent selection of fresh fish cooked to your liking but I would recommend anything cooked al cartoccio (stuffed with herbs and steamed in foil). Local antipasto is given free and there are generous side orders with each dish. The staff are friendly and... More

This superb restaurant is found in Strait street,Valletta, the part between Old Theatre Street and St Lucia Street. The menu is quite vast and food is freshly cooked and delicious. The decor is really welcoming, service very good and relation quality/price, very good too. A must dine when in the city!

Very busy for a Sunday lunch in January, mostly by locals - always s good sign. Booking essential. Good range of authentic Maltese food reasonably priced. Attentive friendly staff. A good selection of fish dishes.

It's an elegant restaurant so it's expensive but the food is good quality, I especially recommend rib eye steak, it was cooked perfectly like I wanted to and the meat was excellent. My friend had pumpkin soup which was delicious. The only thing we didn't like was dessert - the cakes, so I think is just the best to stick... More

In my opininion a must try! Great food and service! the waiters were all so nice. We were also given a free mini maltese platter and bread! I took mushroom vol au vent as starter, and mixed shell fish plate as main. A small tip, the restaurant should work more on their dessert options. Otherwise, simply superb.

We were here on Dec 25 for Christmas Lunch. The place was full, yet the service was very well "oiled" and a nice atmosphere. We even had Christmas Crackers. There was a fixed menu with a choice of 6 starters and 6 main courses. This much choice is certainly better than many places are offering on a day like this.... More

Returned to Palazzo Preca and I must say that the restaurant kept its high level even though the place was more crowded than the last time I was in. Food was excellent. Service was somewhat slow. I prefer foreign wine so the wine list to me was a little restricted. Overall it was a good experience.

Went here with my family to celebrate a birthday a couple of weeks ago, and this was my first time after several recommendations. I'm very happy I decided to go there and it was one of the best meals I've ever had! The restaurant is beautifully designed and decorated with a cosy and warm atmosphere. The menu is extensive and...
