We went to this restaurant because it was recommended to us by the hotel since the restaurant that we wanted to go was fully booked. It was strange that the other restaurant was full and this one was almost empty... Anyway we sat down and had a 5 mins speech on the history of the restaurant and the chef -... More

You receive a starter that includes the butter and bread. It is quite statisfactory, But not excellent. The main course is sufficient, But when you finish you feel it coul be better

It's one of those places you go with a big appetite. I loved the local nibbles..with an aperitiv, then it was the shell fish platter and my favourite, the lamb fillets cooked to perfection. The choice is very good. The wine selection was excellent and the owner was very generous with the liquors!

We wanted something in town but also quiet, we opted for La Maltija because it was in a traditional setting yet in town. We sat at the back behind a hidden arch, and had shell fish to start, followed by spaghetti lobster for mains. The portions are really big, and we were served by a lovely foreign lady who told...

I've been to malta a number of times and always make it a point to go there alone or with clients. I was never let down. The food is always superb, the wine selection is simply incredible and the staff are great!! An amazing example of how patrons of a restaurant should be treated.

Went to La Maltija for a new years eve dinner with about 30 friends, amongst other times. Had excellent service and we were all totally taken care of. Food was beyond divine, even for a large group, each and every dish was just delicious, which is hard to find. Definitely the best possible choice for food, service & atmosphere. A++
