It’s best to make a reservation and ask for a table on the front of the balcony because than you can enjoy marvelous food and spectacular views on the bay. The menu shows some nice surprises and offers several plates you can share. The best way to get a taste of everything. The food tasted fantastic and so did the... More

Good location and good service. We paid high prices at other restaurants but we loved the food and felt it was worth it. We couldn't say the same for here. The food was ok but not amazing. It was overpriced.

We had a meal at The Villa Brasserie whilst staying at Le Meridien, the food was delicious and I had the most tastiest desert here ever! It was based on an After Eight and I would highly recommend it. The staff were attentive and friendly. Slightly pricey but worth it!

We had an absolutely superb experience. The food, service and atmosphere. Everything was great. As a starter we had the most fantastic water-melon gazpacho that we still talk about.

I recently visited The Villa for the first time and immediately loved it on arrival. A gorgeous outdoor terrace overlooking Balluta Bay, by far the best view in St Julians. Unfortunately, the food didn't reach the same standard. One member of our party ordered the pizza which was very tasty and definitely the best bet if you're looking for some... More

We were here to celebrate a 'special' birthday, and were not disappointed. Despite it being pretty busy (including a large group who were also celebrating a birthday (?)) service was friendly and prompt, and the food excellent. Though we were outside we did not have any views as such but the tables are fairly well spaced and the general atmosphere... More

We recently had our wedding on the small terrace for 14 people. The service was excellent, the meal was described as "the best they have had since being in Malta" and it couldn't have been a better day. Staff are excellent and all communication was very efficient. Cannot recommend enough.

The old Villa and Balluta Bay as backdrop has seen many a happy couple tying the knot here. The brasserie offer outstanding food in a lovely setting. We choose this as our last night meal on holiday and it did not disappoint. A large selection of wine always helps..You are also slightly elevated with a great view of the bay.

We got married this June and had a sit down dinner of approx. 130. Everyone complimented us on the good food and service. Staff was attentive and very efficient. The ambience is amazing and ideal for pictures. Thanks a lot to Chris, Rachel and Michelle for the assistance. It was much more than I expected, I will never forget our... More

Evening with friends. Long waiting time and poor service. Felt like we were forgotten. The food was bland, luke warm and not exciting at all. The dish that should contain hazelnuts did not even have a trace of hazelnuts. The dish with pulled beef must have been micro wave heated. When the food was finished we entered the vacuum stage....
