“Consistently superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant twice so far and has become a new favourite for us both. The food is absolutely divine and mouth watering and the amount of food served is such good value for money! The service is great; staff are attentive and not imposing. The atmosphere is great for a cosy meal with friends, family or couples. Highly recommended. Take care to book in advance so as not to be disappointed, as there are a limited amount of tables in the restaurant.

“"Good Indian go there if your near!!" ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

Brilliant lunch menu! We came across this place whilst walking around in the rain this place was a great surprise. We were wet and hungry which was excellent as the meals were massive so for children it is probably better to share. The food was lovely if you do not like spice then go for cool as medium is still quite hot. The service was ok but the waters were a little bit dour. Overall we enjoyed our meal at La Mere!

“You should eat there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

We've been there a couple of times and we'll for certain go again. The food is excellent, several choices of varied cuisines, the staff are extremely helpful and polite, and the ambience is quite unique. I'd gladly eat there every weekend. Book in advance, the place is sought after and has limited seating. This is one of Valletta's best eateries, and I can confidently say that it's good value for money.

“A genuine Maltese Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We read about La Mere on TripAdvisor and then came across it by chance one lunchtime. The restaurant is small and simply decorated with a really nice, relaxing feel about it. We had a simple meal of grilled fish and vegetables and although this took a little while to arrive because the restaurant was busy, it was well-prepared and tasted delicious. The portions were good and reasonably price and we would recommend this restaurant without hesitation. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to return for an evening meal but will save this for our next visit!

“A good dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

La Mere scores high in every way. The food is of a high standard, which is surprising given that the menu is so varied. They have an almost unique practice of pricing the wine at cost and charging corkage, rather than the more usual tripling of the cost of a bottle. The restaurant is small which means that if there is a large group it can monopolise the space which could be a bit overpowering but I don't suppose there is much you can do about that. There was a problem when we went---the chef lost my wife's order which resulted in delay. But we mark them high on that too(surprisingly) because rather than try to cover up the chef cme out and explained personally. Well done.
