We had dinner here whilst on holiday in Malta and we were very happy. We had seafood linguine and some mixed fish and seafood and it was all very tasty and well cooked. This was the best meal we had whilst in Malta and I would recommend it.

Decided to try Maltese Mama's after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. Decided to book which is a must as it gets very busy. Head waiter very knowledgeable and told us about the dish of the day and recommended several dishes. Decided not to have starters as we saw what the portions were like. Given complimentary Bruschetta... More

Had a meal here last night as we looked it up on Trip Advisor and having read lots of positve reviews we decided to try it out. The restaurant is a small family run place and the service was really good. We started with a Shared Maltese Platter and then we both had the Braggioli (think I spelt it right).... More

This is a small restaurant, so you may want to make a reservation. The menu is extensive and features Maltese specialties and dozens of wines. Soon after we ordered, the waitress arrived with a complimentary plate of appetizers. We enjoyed a relaxed meal with no sense of being hurried along so that they could turn the table. We enjoyed it... More

The food is always good here and the fish particularly so. Despite this I ordered the Maltese spaghetti and was not disappointed, it was extremely tasty.

This is a great restaurant which I visited with my wife and children on the last night of our holiday. It is very traditional inside, and has a really nice feel. The food choices available on the menu left me struggling to decide what to order. I went with the Mediterranean seafood stew. OMG, it was sensational. If you visit... More
