We ate here twice during our week in Malta and found the food excellent on both occasions. It is really good value for money and plenty of choice to suit all.The staff are friendly and efficient and you do not get the impression that you are being rushed - pleasantly relaxing.

Wow. Many thanks to John, Joan and all the staff at the Plum Tree. Food is always fabulous especially the fillet steak. The set menu (three courses) is again excellent. The atmosphere is friendly and both John and Joan go out of their way to make you welcome even to ensuring there was a birthday card from them all for... More

Roast potatoes, 2 flat Yorkshire puddings, shredded carrot, green beans and shredded turnip and a nice Flavoured gravy. No mashed potatoes and not what I expected in vegetables. I expected at least more in the... More

My experience of the Plum Tree is that it's very popular with locals as well as tourists, and the food is of excellent quality and variation, cooked and served well. I would say it is a mid price value, and the staff are very welcoming and friendly.
