Went to Assaggi with high hopes but were very disappointed and felt it is very overpriced. Food was ok but the chef was trying to be too fancy without getting the basics right. We had a table on the outside terrace which appeared to be next to a covered up generator, hence we were extremely warm (fair enough we could... More

The restaurant itself is a bit hard... More

Assaggi is an excellent fine dining restaurent and would not be out of place at home in Dubai. In fact, it would probably be well up there in the top 10%. Quite simply, outstanding food of the highest quality. From a delightful amuse bouche to an excellent creme brulee the quality was top drawer. For starter, both my son and... More

Everything was great! We were a bit to hungry to wait that long for the food but if it wasn't for the a little bit to long wait it would have been a perfect record.

Pity it's a bit hidden, as if it was more visible, it would be fully booked day in day out... Incredible food, amazing chef, friendly staff..As the title says, I would have given it 6 stars if I could...Will definitely return in the very near future...

Staying at a hotel nearby, my wife and I saw the well-hidden Assaggi restaurant everyday, but never ventured inside. Then, upon receiving warm recommendations from friends living in Malta, we decided to give it a try. We were completely amazed. The menu was very well devised, the service was super friendly and above all, the food was excellent. Probably the... More

Visited Assaggi again recently, and it is a confirmation that it is still one of the best on the island. Starters to die for and so are the main courses. Quality / Price are very reasonable. This is a place where there is no doubt that the finest ingredients are used. Thumbs up Assaggi! keep up the good job!
