Dining solo can be an unnerving, sensitive experience. It's unnatural in many ways to eat in public without a companion. It signals vulnerability, which is not an experience that pairs well with fine dining. It takes an exceptional waiter or waitress to rebalance the mood of the solo diner. The staff at Assaggi weren't up to the task, but it's... More

Don't miss out! Our only regret is that we found Assaggi's on a Saturday night - which meant that since we were leaving on Monday (and since they are closed for dinner on Sundays) we couldn't have another dinner there before leaving Malta. Seriously, if we had found it earlier in our stay I think we would have been there... More

This restaurant is not very well known, and in fact the concierge at the Intercontinental didn't know about it: what a miss !!! This small restaurant offers cosy seating, very friendly staff and really excellent Italian food and wines !! we cannot recommend enough to go there when in St Julian if you are fond of Italian cuisine. Prices are... More

We arrived at 9.30pm and were served promptly by a very friendly and helpful waitress. It then took 50 minutes for our scallop starters to arrive. Our main courses did not arrive until well past 11.00pm. The starters and the main courses of rack of lamb and steak were generous and perfectly cooked but were so late in arriving that... More

The only restaurant I have found in Malta that has a wine list of substance! The wines compliment Ivan's food beautifully, the restaurant gives each table its own privacy and the food is cooked to perfection. The meats that myself and my guest had were as requested, blue and medium rare and cooked just as we liked them. Ivan and... More

The food here is amazing - we had great wine, great food, and service was really top notch, lovely people - it was definitely the best food of the trip and the second best restaurant experience of the holiday. Given the standard of the food its very good value. Outdoor seating faces onto a busy pub/bar with no particular view... More
