I have been coming to malta every year for 8 years and the only consistent is going to L'Escargot the food is what it says in the menu. The staff are friendly, the owner always greats us and the money value is cheap. I would recommend this to others.

The restaurant is very well located, on the top of the village, and has very nice tables with view. Service is lovely. The housekeeper is a bit grumpy, but the waitresses are excellent! Maltese food is delightful and copious (do not hesitate to share your plate). Try the rabbit and the beef (bragioli). Coffee is divine, simply the best on... More

I have been occasionally having lunch here for quite some time and it is about time I give back some of the excellent service offered to me by leaving a review here. What attracts me most to this place is the totally relaxed atmosphere in which you can enjoy your meal. Norbert, the chef patron, apart from his culinary prowess,... More

Had lunch here on our first day - lovely tuna sandwich on fresh bread with salad and olives - very friendly staff and excellent value for money - bit of a trek up the hill but well worth the climb !!

The English waitress serving was very helpful finding us an outside table not too near the smokers. I asked for a smaller portion and was given just the right amount and the price was adjusted. I had also forgotten my glasses and was lent a pair to read the menu. The food was delicious and reasonably priced

Visited this friendly restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food, however, the quantity was mind blowing. You certainly won't go away hungry. Prices were very reasonable and service was excellent.
