“Good option is St.Julian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

A modern looking bistro with nice small garden just by the main street and promenadę.
We went for dinner and to sum it up we were really pleased.
The good start is to take their seafood combination ( 17 eur/per) and you get two oysters, good salmon carpaccio, fish cakes, octopus salad and pot of mussels). frankly speaking knowing that we wil not order anything else... but we did before. Their rabbit was very good, tender and easily parting from the bone, very well seasoned.The other choice was veal kidney which was served with nice gravy and was good.
I will come again.

“best meal we had in malta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Went here twice in May 2014 with my boyfriend, stayed in the area for seven nights and this was by far the best. It was defiantly more expensive then the others we went to but we had great service, the food was lovely and the atmosphere and surrondings also lovely. Restaurant seemed quiet compared to others which was also quite nice. Food was a bit slow coming out the first time we went but probably reflects the standard of the meal and as its a nice place didnt bother us waiting. Would defiantly reccomend.

“Look for this on the quiet side of the bay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

An absolute gem. Unlike the touristy side of Spinola bay, this is more relaxed and friendly dining of top quality food and service.

“I'll swim back to Malta for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

It felt like a trip back in time, when I used to get excellent seafood and fresh fish, simple and tasty, from small family restaurants in South of France!
Everything is perfect at Vermell: your food, simply delicious and beautifully served, the staff, young, friendly and attending carefully to all your needs. I would warmly recommend it to anyone looking for authentic cuisine, tasty fresh fish (you are proposed the day's catch, and It is impossible to resist even if you had already chosen from the menu's inspiring dishes - primi, secondi, pasta, etc etc - and thought you knew what you wanted to eat! )
In 2 words: loved the place and will go back tomorrow to try some other dishes :-)
