Great for light bite lunch

A long walk, up and down hills (always like that in Mellieha) and we felt we deserved some lunch. L'escargot hit the spot. Great ftira & pizza as well as the local Cisk beer. All was well with the world

Go for a coffee, bacon butty or the fat boy breakfast, you will not be disappointed. Such as is, you will go back again the next day for the same. Hot, tasty and filling. If we cam back, it would be our morning rictual.

We had lunch a couple of times at L'Escargot and each time the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend the local rabbit dish washed down with a nice local wine. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the prices are so reasonable. Worth a visit.

I took my daughter for a meal this evening. She had octopus in garlic. This was well prepared and very enjoyable. I had a mixed seafood pizza. This was without question the worst pizza I have ever attempted to eat. It was overloaded with cheese almost to the point that it had been welded together and despite being supplied with... More

They are proud of their burgers, but we had cod fillets and a Maltese platter. Both tasted lovely! Situated in the street going up from the church

I got there for a cup of coffee. It's in the heart of Mellieha and the location is nice. The staff was very friendly. In the end I got a large Cappuccino. And it just cost 2€ and it tastes excellend! I did not eat anything, but it looked and smelled really good! :)
