After visiting friends in Malta they implored me to try the rabbit dishes on offer at Charlie's inn. It was a good experience with service acceptable; the food was delicious with my dish seasoned to perfection. Would recommend.

We were a group of three couples. We all have travelled a lot and experienced a good amount of restaurants, but this meal was excellent. We started with the usual snails, bigilla and aglioli, and then we got the fresh oysters. We were then presented with a mousse of fresh tuna beautifully laid on a fine piece of toasted bread....

Having Maltese parents, I admit I was a bit skeptical of any restaurant preparing a rabbit dinner that could compare to my Mamma's home cooking, but I was very pleasantly surprised and pleased with my dinner. The rabbit was tender and fall-off-the-bone cooked to perfection! When ordering I requested gluten-free pasta which they were pleased to oblige, and they took... More

also had high expectations after reading reviews and reviews stating that it's the best rabbit house and others even comparing it to fine dining....... come on don't make me laugh it's just another average 'rabbit house'. prices are reasonable however portions are small, very small. the rabbit that some described as divine and the best they've ever had, is oven...

We had high expectations from this restaurant as it was recommended multiple times. We all ordered something traditional for starters, and a fillet for seconds. Starters were OK, but seconds where all over-cooked. I ordered my fillet medium-rare, and it was delivered well-done!! The fillet was also sliced (for some odd reason). Very disappointed to say the least!

We were advised by an estate agent who was showing us around the island that Charlie's is the best place in Malta to have rabbit. I have asked other Maltese friends an colleagues this question and many say you have to go to Mgarr. Having eaten rabbit there, I'm not convinced, so I would say try other places (e.g L'Artiste...

Recommended by many, Charlie’s Inn was definitely top of our list. Expectations were high; nevertheless the fantastic food, great service and cosy environment by far exceeded them. We arrived and were greeted immediately by friendly staff. The starters came after a very reasonable amount of time and we were blown away by the seafood served to us in a little... More

Excellent value, and very good food. Although I do not eat rabbit, I was served with a really delicious fresh fish, accompanied with cooked veg. Absolutely divine. My advise is to dine early, possibly before 8.30, to avoid the busy hours. After nine, the place gets so busy that you will hardly hear yourself talking. Book in advance.

We returned to charlies earlier this month for our favourite Maltese speciality ....rabbit. Charlies rabbit meal is excellent value and to enjoy it to the full you need to be hungry! Early over indulgence on the snails and nibbles will lead to you filling up whilst eating the fantastic spaghetti, leaving little room to fully enjoy the wonderful rabbit. Other... More
