“Last night in Malta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

What a fantastic restaurant! The food was so elegantly presented and the attention to detail immaculate. I had the rabbit done three ways and it was the best meal I had eaten all holiday. 3 courses for 2 people, with wine, water, coffee & liqueurs for under €80. It's only a small restaurant, so well worth booking in advance, especially on a Saturday.

“Foodie heaven in Valletta!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I returned to Capistrano after having a wonderful meal 2 days earlier. We were so impressed with the quality and presentation of the food that set it apart from the rest of the 5 dining experiences we had in Valletta that it was a very easy choice to make. Conrad our host promised that we would have a totally different experience as they were going to refurbish the restaurant over the next 2 days and yes, the restaurant decor was totally changed on our return.
We also shared the restaurant with a group from an upcoming wedding party so the restaurant had plenty of atmosphere. We also had tables filling and emptying during the night. Our meal was delicious, we had a little amuse Bouche from the house of cous cous with raisins and a little cheese toast followed by some home made grouper ravioli with sundried tomato pesto for a starter, nice textures and great flavours.
Main course for my wife was the swordfish that the chef changed as my wife doesn't eat olives and instead had a burre blanc suace that she loved. My wife said it was the best swordfish she had ever had (big call as we have travelled in Italy on previous occasions and eaten swordfish in Sicily!). I had the rabbit trio with a homemade rabbit sausage, Bon Bon and rabbit stuffed and rolled in prosciutto, very tasty! Dessert for my wife was their beautiful chocolate tart and I had the ricotta pudding. After dinner the chef came to our table to say hello and talk about the food, he is very passionate about his food and using only fresh ingredients for his menu. We were then given an aperitif of our choice from the house to finish off.
A great way to finish our stay in Malta!
Thanks again to Conrad and the
team for a great night.
