“Excellent Food and Excellent Personal Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We booked L'Artist after reading the Tripadvisor reviews and enjoyed the dining experience so much that we went back again the next evening and it was just as good second time as well!

Gino and Rita are very warm and welcoming hosts and Steve is a very talented chef and together that made both our evenings memorable enough for us to plan to return to Malta with friends to dine at L'Artist again.

We are looking forward to our next L'Artist experience.

“Lovely well prepared and served Maltese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

In May at a saturdayevening we ate at L'artist with a party of 4. We had chosen L'artist on suggestions of some local Maltese. We were very happy with out choice! Both the starters and mains were a good selection of maltese cuisine. The rabbit came with a tasty sauce, chicken was delicious and the fish fresh!
The service was friendly and personal, we will definetely return often :)
We learned that you can also order fresh mussels a day ahead! That sounds great!!

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Upon a friend's recommendation we tried L'Artist last week. Food was excellent. I chose rabbit and it came with a sort of peanut sauce which was divine. My other friends had steaks and they raved about their food. Keep it up! We will come back.

“"Fantastic"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

The restaurant is in Sliema near the center of a street. If you could not that is the best restaurant in Sliema, you would go behind. The interior is small but very cozy. The staff is nice, the atmosphere is completely familiar. The waitress also cook if I have to. The choice might not seem much, but what we chose was fantastic. If you like seafood then select "seafood mix" food, but the steak is excellent Juk.
The restaurant is usually closed on Sundays and Mondays, which may be because otherwise you will be lucky to get into. It was a fantastic experience, I recommend to anyone else.

“Gino runs a fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Gino runs L'Artist, and he is a wonderful host. He suggested a perfect wine for our meal. We had the mushrooms and fish platter for two. Amazing! We are here for a week, and we will go back again before we leave Malta.
