“Best Meal in Bugibba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have visited Malta for over 15 years (as have my parents and this is their favourite restaurant) and La Sorpresa is the only restaurant which I feel is consistently excellent. Service was excellent, food was delicious and the complimentary nibbles (garlic bread, bean dip, sundried tomatoes, crusty bread and butter) added a lovely touch! Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the dessert list for a set menu was very vast. Great value, great food and highly recommended!

“One of the best restaurants in Malta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

My wife and I frequently dine in at this restaurant. Excellent cooking accompanied by good service by Kolin and his staff. Good value for money. My favourite is the Pork fillet but everything on the menu is excellent. Just keep it up Kolin.

“The best restaurant in Bugibba!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Having eaten in poor restaurants for the first three nights in Malta, we stumbled across this restaurant while searching for a taxi, and were shocked to see that it was so busy, while all around it was empty.
The food was absolutely lovely, with great service, and a great place to people watch from the pavement. We only wish we had found it sooner!
On the same street were other lovely restaurants too- it's a shame that the guide books missed this area, as the restaurants deserve to be eaten at!
