Lovely food

Nice little restaurant on Triq Paceville. Cosy atmosphere, and great food. I had rabbit, and my wife had pork chops, which were both delicious. Got free wine too!

Just getting in an "old smell". Dirty and sticky cutlery. Really poor quality set menu.... Salad tasted very bad, traditional soup was dirty water with coliflower taste and the sword fish dry like a shoe and watery and tasteless sauce. Group of Maltese women dinning, screaming and drinking too much, one of them almost threw up on my jacket. Horrible... More

The headwaiter or whatever he was, behaved like an army cook but army food tastes a lot better. The bragoli looked like an aborted fetus in a sea of blood (tomato sauce straight from the can and not stew) and were evidently stuffed with breadcrumbs. The potato and salad portion were small enough on their own, even smaller when you... More

First of all the discount of 50% I had purchased from maltadeals4u was not valid for pizza, whereas on the site of maltadeals4u it was clearly indicated that the discount was valid also for pizza. So we had bragioli. On the menu it was indicated that the filling of the bragioli was supposed to include hard boiled eggs, but there... More

My wife and I were wanting to experience real maltese food, as the night before (9/3/2015) we ate at the restaurant opposite The Maltese Mama which we both found excellent!! But this night (10/3/2015) we were enticed by the quaintness of Kandles, My wife had a passable swordfish steak I "played safe" and had Maltese Roast Beef and roast potatoes... More

Recently had dinner with my wife at Kandles Restaurant for the second time. Very unprofessional: Quite evident that food is not freshly cooked as you have it pronto served within 5 minutes from ordering it!!! For a fast food restaurant that is excellent but surely not for this type of restaurant! No breathing space is allowed between the starter and... More

Very good food, went with family for a birthday dinner. starters of crusty bread and bruschetta were very good. I had fillet a la islola which has maltese sausages and is simply amazing. the rib eye was cooked to perfection and also the rabbit done the maltese way was very good. roast potatoes and/ or chips plus salad and vegetables...

Found this restaurant on the first day of our holiday, and ended going there 3 times in a week. Simply loved the food and the atmosphere. Rabbit was delicious, best for maltese food in the whole st julians. Friendly staff, and good value for money. Definately on my top list. Highly recommended
