Visiting Malta for a week in March, we tried out different restaurants in the St.Julian's neighbourhood. The Assaggi stood out as excellent, owned and run by a husband/wife team (husband: the chef, wife: the front-of-house).The restaurant is informal and cosy, tucked away. The service was very helpful and friendly, perfectly hosted. The food was a treat to behold, creative, beautifully... More

Amazed by the delicious food, served by the very friendly staff. We had a six course meal with the concept Pay What It's Worth, and found it difficult to pay an adequate price for the wonderful dining experience we had. Will definitely visit again, and would highly recommend this place.

Amazing food & wonderful service!! We opted for the tasting menu and we were in culinary heaven from beginning to end. The owner and talented chef trained under Gordon Ramsay and has created his own unique style focussing on using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Amanda was the perfect hostess and Mette, the sommelier, helped us chose the perfect accompanying wines. A... More

My and my 2 dinner companions all had great 3 course meal. The menu was refreshingly different with a wide choice. I get the feeling that this is one of those great menus where many dishes are changed frequently or even daily based on what's fresh. My porcini porkbelly starter was excellent and so was my ribeye, served with white... More

The food was just great from start to finish. For starter we had ravioli filled with cernia on a bed of carpaccio prawns and a small slice of pork belly. This starter was divine. Our friend had soup, was told that it was so good. Afterwards some of us had aged rib-eye and others had a rack of veal. Well... More

Just visited this for a Sunday lunch and I can say it's one of the best lunches we ever had in a restaurant in Malta. Service is impeccable and the food is divine. Will surely return back.

Scrolling through the restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor is to enter a critic old world. It is the place where the critic judges the merits and faults or expresses his or her disapproval on the cuisine, the service and the place itself. We all act as the foodie judge and jury.

Possibly the best restaurant I have experienced in Malta. Sunday Lunch is to be highly recommended with personalised service, fresh ingredients and intimate atmosphere. Will continue to return to this quality restaurant.
