Evening meal

Dropped in on the off chance for a table which they had ,we had starter's, mains,and sweets Also a few glasses of wine which you have to do. A bit expensive but it was really good food and service. And no push to move from the table.

I went here due to strong recommendations but i feel that its aura of being an exclusive and expensive restaurant puts a lot of people off. As a result i was the only person dining. The food was good but really, no one wants to be the only person in a restaurant.

Eaten here on more than a few occasions and the impeccable service, great food and probably the most beautiful venue on the island make for a great restaurant. Went recently for a corporate event christmas themed food was divine and original. The service as usual was impeccable with staff always attentive, courteous and friendly. I had to write some sort...

We ate here twice during our week’s stay in Malta; once just before Christmas, and again on Christmas Day. Both times were really excellent. The food and service were first class, and Christmas Day was exceptional. The beef both times was very good and cooked exactly as requested. My wife really loved her rabbit. We were going to go back... More

Right next door to Le Meridien so very handy for us, lovely Tuna starter that was melt in your mouth. Sea bass main course was served at the table by a knowledgeable waiter, not a bone in sight! Bit expensive but worth the money

We always stay at Le Meridien and one of the highlights of our stay is always a meal at The Villa. I do believe that my first experience there around 6 years ago, however, the location and service is equally as impressive. Always finishes a holiday on a high note.
