Description: Open for Dinner. Commando is a restaurant and wine bar housed within a 300-year old stone building that has been the workplace of our forefathers for over 80 years. Chef Damian Ciappara draws inspiration from his surroundings, using fresh local ingredients to create simple yet elegant dishes. We work closely with local producers to deliver a seasonally influenced menu that celebrates Mediterranean flavours. Fresh fish/seafood, tender meats, sun ripened vegetables, rustic pasta dishes, and homemade desserts.

“High standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Visited this restaurant. The food, was cooked to perfection, entirely to our satisfaction, and the staff was courteous & helpful. What I didn't like was the average pricing TRIP ADVISOR gave to this restaurant, i.e. Euro20 - 35. Our meal which included 1 bottle of wine (Eur 21) and bottle of water(3.50) & two campari orange, - 1 starter, two main, and two desserts amounted to Euro 98.50. So, the pricing was definietly mislieading, but obviously this is not the restaurant's fault, which, I repeat was surely and exceptional culinary experience which ended by two liquors offered for us on the house

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Had the pleasure of dining at this very nice restaurant. Great food and good service. With a total price of 60EUR per person incl. 3 dishes a la carte, aperitifs, wine,and coffee and scotch this is very good value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to come back to the great place.

“Will visit again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

This was a nice surprise... Great food, great service and a wonderful location right in the square in front of the Mellieha church. Commando offers both indoor and outdoor dining, an interesting menu and the friendliest staff ever. The highlights of the night were the starters. I would recommend the scallop and prawn ravioli or the truffle and Parmesan risotto anytime. We'll definitely visit again.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

By far our best meals of the holiday here. Expensive but worth every penny. Chef is very accommodating. Only a few options on the menu but the food tasted superb!
