We just kept coming back

We had heard a lot of good things about Charles Grech and were really looking forward to giving it a try. It proved to be a great place for a glass of wine, Aperol and light lunch, as we went three times during our week in Malta. Service was always impeccable (bar one waitress whose communication... read more

Love this place. Just divine the service was tops.... staff very attentive and the music just right for a Saturday evening with friends.  The Prosecco for a change was not sickly sweet but just perfect with the complimentary crisps, olives and nuts were a lovely touch. The wine and drinks list is good and extensive, including even single malts. We... More

This is the place to "see and be seen" when you're in Valletta...a very trendy and elegant café & cocktail bar which offers an extensive variety of drinks (and snacks). Staff is very polite and attentive. I love to treat myself to a cocktail here after some intense shopping on a Saturday morning!

We happened upon this café/bar by fortunate accident whilst looking for a refuge from the rain! I cannot believe our luck, as we never found anywhere to better it during our 5 days visit. The wines are excellent, especially the local reds and very reasonable in cost. The choice of hot beverages, small snacks and cakes are again extremely good... More

Chilly day spent in Valletta was made far better for a visit to this place. Tasteful decor, lovely friendly atmosphere and staff. Spirit and cigar shop downstairs worth a visit. Cocktails amazing and the wife loved the Prossecco. If visiting Valletta make sure you visit this place

Looked so inviting from the outside that we decided to drop off for an afternoon cuppa. It was a good choice. It felt sophisticated and up market, staff were efficient without being over powering, the music was just at the right level and all in all a warm, relaxing ambience was created. I had a 'skinny' hot chocolate and my... More

Last weekend I decided to go and have a couple of drinks with my friends here... I must admit that I was really impressed by the service. Bar staff were really experts in drinks, especially with cocktails... After couple of drinks, we ordered a Maltese platter, delicious... I highly recommend this place...
