It wants to be a top posh restaurant but the only thing it's got spot on about this is the prices! Food is not bad at all, but the portions are way too small and we had to get full with bread! I'm sorry but no matter how good your food is, you cannot charge the same prices as a... More

Had a great lunch here with my wife. The outside dinning area is a transformed gazebo/marque which they have done masters with. It poured down with rain and we did not have a drop fall. Chairs are really comfy which I do take note of as I like to take my time at restaurants. We had mussels which were cooked... More

Valletta as a city ii itself is romantic; La Sfoglia restaurant adds to the romanticism and with Jerome at front of house it was the start to a great evening. Menu is presented on a massive black board and patiently explained in detail by Jerome. Our order consisted of a seafood platter for starters; tuna tartar, prawns, deep fried calamari... More

Recommended by the front desk of the Phoenicia Hotel, the food here did not disappoint, absolutely delicious and generous portions. Good recommendations by the friendly staff too. Only quibble was with being seated in the tent extension to the main restaurant. Nothing really wrong with it but the extra mileage to the kitchen didn't help the low-season reduced staff get...

.....but the others were very good We had a long lunch in La Sfoglia We didn't intend it to be long but a Maltese Meze with nothing heated or cooked too forever to arrive. Meanwhile one table had waiters falling over themselves to wait while other diners arrived and left empty handed because they were ignored. Sort yourselves out !!

We had two meals here during our stay in Valletta and it was absolutely gorgeous each time. Very friendly staff. Have to say the bread they provide at the start is just awesome! Each night we had prosecco and wine, delicious main courses and desserts and enjoyed every single bite. The biggest steaks and ribs I have ever eaten! Totally... More

We ate here a few days ago with my wife we had a lovely starter and the mains were delicious. Very good food, don't be put off by the price, there are some great wines which don't cost that much, so you can balance the cost a little. What made this stand out more than other places was the attention... More

Visited here with my son just before the World Cup final. Excellent service and lovely free appetisers with local goats cheese and olives. One special was a tuna steak perfectly cooked and served with local vegetables and tomatoes clearly from the north of the island. Highly recommended!
