This is my second time here -- once when they first opened and once just recently. The food was great both times, but now the owners have really perfected the restaurant business. We had the sea bass and it was wonderful. We sat outside on a perfect night and it was just great.

La Sfoglia was recommended by our guide. We were in Malta on a cruise and we were fortunate enough to get to spend dinnertime in La Valletta. We were greeted by Chef Oswald who was very hospitable. The menu is a chalkboard of fresh specials. Chef recommended the razor clams and linguine and it was very fresh and plentiful with... More

We were really disappointed by this restaurant. The terrace is nicely organised in a small street and the menu seems to be very attractive but..25 mins after we arrived we didn't get our starter. The rest took a lot longer to be served. The waiters didn't seem very interested by the fact that we were waiting, they didn't even look... More

A marvellous dinner with friends. Starters to share included oysters, tuna, calamari, king prawns and muscles. All fresh, beatifully plated and tasty. As a main whole fish al sale and tuna cooked to perfection. Great selection of wines and really fresh fish. Staff are polite, helpful and professional. The prices are not cheap but it's worth it, really. Will definitely... More

We ate here the first night of our ten day stay and finding none better we returned for our last night. The restaurant is in a marquee in a side street away from bustle. Jazz plays quietly in the background and it feels exclusive. The service was excellent and the waiter was attentive. When we ordered red wine it was... More

After some frustration on finding my researched choices closed, we happened upon this lovely restaurant and it's outdoor tent. Very elegant and open setting, with tasteful music, and courteous staff. Many seafood dishes. The octopus salad was delicious and fresh, and the calamari very lightly breaded and spiced. The mussels we did not enjoy as much, but we're plentiful. Hearty... More

Valetta, being what it is, is replete with dining options. My wife and I decided to avoid the large cafeteria like layouts and found La Sfoglia tucked away in a corner of market street. A white tent adorned with chandeliers and satin flourishes on the ceiling offer shade from the sun, along with a tasteful and elegant setting. My wife... More
