“Chef-owner made us feel welcome & provided great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This family-run business is just what we needed after a long day of visiting some of the major Malta attractions. Based in the St Paul area, the restaurant offers home-cooked traditional Maltese dishes and some English options. My daughter had the swordfish and was given two large steaks cooked in a tomato broth with various herbs and capers, she loved her meal. My husband and I had roasted chicken and the portion was generous (half chicken each). The chef came to our table to explain how he prepared the various food items and proceeded to entertain us with his knowledge of the Island's history, politics, economic facts and other wonderful & useful information. Our meals were accompanied by Maltese wine and we ended our night with various liqueurs. The decor is very basic, unpretentious but extremely cozy and clean.

“Highly recommended all diets catered for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Once again John pulled out all the stops I use to dread going on holiday with my diet restrictions (gluten free foods, coeliac) however nothing was too difficult for John to achieve from the gluten free bread in the basket, a variety of mouth watering puddings, gravies with the Sunday Roast, separate fried chips and crispy coated chicken Kiev’s. The list could go on and on. This restaurant is a must for any one with or without any dietary requirements. Valentines day menu was scrumptious!

We paid numerous visits to The Plum Tree during our week in Malta and each time there was a warm welcome and the food and wine did not disappoint. Excellent. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.
