“Go for the "Tradition" set menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had the 6 course set seafood menu which has to be the best value fine dining we've had. For €39 a head we started off with a raw course of marinated prawns, amberjack fillet and stuffed aubergine slices. The second course was a selection of whole grilled local fish, tuna and aubergine parmigiani, fish cakes, stuffed cod fillet and the most incredible swordfish fillet. The pasta was fresh, handmade orecchiette with a sauce made from tomato and shellfish stock, simple but lovely. Then we had a much needed tomato sorbet before the main of very simply but perfectly cooked sea bass fillets with fresh vegetables. You wouldn't think we had any room left but we still managed to do the cassata and home made milk ice cream justice. The wine list is excellent and the service was impeccable. The food was every bit as sophisticated, fresh and well-prepared as anything we've had - it takes real confidence to pull off this kind of food and the kitchen really knows what it's doing. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

“Delicious :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We went to eat at this amazing restaurant for my birthday. The food was excellent and the service was great. The portions were slightly small considering the prices. But other than that, I recommend it to anyone!

“Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Malta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

The food at Sciacca is just gorgeous, the decor is very stylish, the atmosphere is wonderful and the service is excellent. I live in Malta and have been to most restaurants and this is undoubtedly our favourite. Dinner here is a must.

“My compliments..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

..to the staff and the chef at this restaurant. Excellent and attentive service and mouthwatering dishes. We had fresh fish, al sale and fresh seafood accompanied by a very good bottle of wine. Make sure to leave some space for the home-made desserts, as they are delicious. My compliments for the food presentation as well. I look forward to my second visit to Sciacca. A 5 star restaurant.
