Great little find with Authentic Maltese food

On our trip to Malta for a wedding we were strolling the tight back streets when we ran into this gem , the host was welcoming & proud of his Maltese heritage food. I had the house specialty of baked rabbit & my partner had stuffed Auvergne , both were fantastic. I recommend La Maltija when in Malta

During our holidays last 2 weeks we have regular been eating at this restaurant. The quality of the meals is excellent. As a main coursewe can recommend to the octopus, the way the chef transforms this on your plate is extraordinary.

We had a lovely evening at La Maltija - the food was delicious and the service very good. It's not a cheap restaurant but the quality is good and it's definitely worth a visit for an authentic Maltese meal.
