“Good Maltese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We chose Maltese dishes, the service was very good, the wait was reasonable and what we were served was very tasty and reasonably priced.

“Recommended!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Definitely go to this restaurant for a good and friendly service and classic dishes which are executed very well!
The outside terrace is suffering a bit from the busy traffic.

“First class food, first class service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

We were a group of six adults and we were delighted with the quality of food and staff, they were very accommodating. They happily substituted pasta with mashed potato even though this was not part of the item on the menu.

The food was first class, with high quality ingredients being used. It was not expensive.

The staff made us all feel very welcome, they treated us like family.

We will make this our favourite restaurant the next time we visit Malta.

We can highly recommend Porto del Sol.

“Best restaurant meal ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Everything about this restaurant is good or even excellent. The welcome and service is always excellent, attentive and helpful without being intrusive. The view over St Paul's Bay through floor to ceiling picture windows is un-rivalled especially at night. The menu is quite extensive with local, European and English fare available. A Good wine list is also on offer. Prices are not cheap but quite reasonable for the quality of food and service. Food is excellent as is service and presentation. I am a frequent visitor to Malta and a meal at this restaurant is always a must on my itinery. I have tried many of the dishes on offer, but usually settle for my favourite here, the Excellent and filling fish soup, and the whole rabbit cooked in red wine. I will be back.
