“Just by chance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We were walking down merchants street, not even sure whether to have lunch or just a snack from a take away. We happened on the Sfoglia and went in on a whim. Wonderful service, knowlegeable and attentive. A lovely Maltese paltter to start and then fish from the fresh display. We chose dentex, that's the male grouper to us. Cooked to perfection and fresh as the morning catch. Complimentary grappa and frangelica, Italian but so what. A sure fire 'next time I'm in Valletta experience.

“Great Aperol Spritz!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

My friend and I only visited here briefly for an Aperol Spritz but it was one of the best ones I have had in a long time. Definitely the best I had on the island of Malta.

“Fantastic last night in Valletta at a superb restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

On our last night in Valletta we had dinner at the La Sfoglia. This is a outstanding restaurant and topped off a magnificent week in Malta The tuna steaks were cooked to perfection and most enjoyable; the best we've had. The atmosphere of eating at a side walk restaurant was a most pleasant experience. The chef explained in some detail about the various dishes especially their signature fish dishes and we could see that all the fish was fresh. We found the staff friendly , informative and attentive. You need to book if you want to visit for most nights especially Saturday. One of the best restaurants we have visited.

“Fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

It is not a cheap restaurant, but what you have is what you pay for. For the kind of food..... Its not too expensive. We had a very mouthwatering seafood platter and dentici for seconds, washed down with an isis... We will come again. We loved it.. Nice staff, polite and dignified.

“Superb lunch..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This was not a cheap restaurant, but the food was fresh and beautifully prepared. The owner makes an effort to engage with the diners, explaining the dishes in detail, even tells you where the produce comes from. You have to pay for quality. And if you have a table outside, you can watch the Maltese world go by. Will happily go back again when next in Malta.
