I have been going to this place for rabbit for quite a long time, however this is the first time I am writing a review. I went there again last Friday with my work colleagues, we were started off with dips, aioli and bigilla (a locally made bean paste) served with water biscuits and crusty fresh bread. We were also...

This is one of the first place I've been to since I came to Malta a decade or so.. for Fenkata. Last night, we were in the area and end up in this place. We went for the usual .. started with snails and dips. Spaghetti with rabbit sauce then the FENKATA. The portion is too much for 2 people...... More

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

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...
