The Best

Someone told me that it is difficult to find good food in Malta. I can say not here. Start with some typical cheese, local olives, and a wonderful kind of local "ragu" made with pork meat. Then the best fish I have ever tried in my life. Good red wine and the staff was more than friendly. Thanks.

Great location and was looking forward as came highly recommended. We rang to pre book as advised but when we arrived they were not interested in knowing who we are. The waiter was friendly but brash. Had no menu ( though of you happen to look closely on the picture you can see one menu in the corner) and presumed... More

We went as a group of four and absolutely loved the place. This week (third week November) there are no dinner hours – their schedule seems a bit fluid on that point. We wanted to reserve a couple of days ahead for lunch, but they weren’t sure whether they would be open due to the local security goings-on with the... More

Great food, superb atmosphere, the service... one feels that you have been invited to their home, you are pampered and doted upon, food is simple, fresh and inviting. No menu, one is offered the dishes of the day, take the hosts recommendations and you will not be sorry. The locals know this place, for the visitor to Malta it is... More

This place was recommended to us and they weren't wrong! The atmosphere in the small but busy restaurant was buzzing on the Monday lunch time we visited. Once sat down the complimentary small plates served were fantastic. There are no menus - instead you are told what is good and make a decision. The food was very good - they... More

No menus here. You'll welcomed warmly and served what they have on the day, which is what is in season, allowing enough choices to cater for all tastes. The food is always great. This place is really a typical Maltese dining experience, you'll not feel that you went to a formal restaurant, but rather that you're visiting friends who ask... More

First of all, this place easily has some of the best food in Valletta. Second, I know how busy this little place is, and that many regulars are always dining there. Considering this, when I took a date there for lunch and service was in full swing, we were accepted and seated straight away. The only thing that I'd advise... More
