We were lucky enough to pass by and stop at La Sfoglia late in the lunch service. Our food was excellent, with my sea bass some of the best fish I've ever been served. The outdoor seating was comfortable and the service impeccable.

If its meat , fish , soup or pasta every dish is just perfect . Not leaving out the dessert especially the traditional imqaret with ice cream.

This is a restaurant which truly excels in all ways. Delectable food, very friendly and attentive service, chic ambience and reasonable prices. We opted for a shared plate of vongole and we also shared a (big!) wild seabass, both of which we enjoyed thoroughly. (I loved the mashed potato too!). The ever changing menu ensures fresh food and keeps me... More

We chose fish, which was... More

It was our second time eating at this lovely restaurant - 1st time round we had just a plate of pasta, cooked to perfection with fresh seafood. Today we opted for fresh fish and we were impressed. Jerome, one of the owners always serves with a smile and this makes such a big difference. Will definitely return, hopefully in the... More

I try and visit La Sfoglia in Valletta every time I go to Malta. This is a family run business by brothers Jerome and Oswald Caruana, the later is the chef and former deals with front of house. Inside it is small and cosy but they have extensive covered outdoor seating which is open all year round. The menu is... More

Yesterday I had the opportunity to dine at this amazing restaurant. The food is top notch and the patron went out of his way to make our evening a fabulous one. Opted for duck breast whilst my husband had fish, both were cooked to perfection and exceptionally tasty. Will definitely be back!
