I found this restaurant on Tripadvisor by accident, looking at restaurants in Gzira. As Ali Baba was number 1 on the list it caught my attention. We went to eat there the same night with no reservation and were able to get a table. The waiter was most attentive and even placed the napkins in our lap. Service was excellent... More

Dinner at midweek was fantastic. It's a small restaurant but very cozy and friendly atmosphere. Very close seating and definitely not for very romantic time. Food is amazing and simply delicious. Will be back surely.

In our last night in Malta, we went to Ali Baba restaurant for dinner. Was a pleasant experience in every aspect. Delicious food with well chosen ingredients, good service and nice owner. Even if I am used to go to Lebanese restaurants when traveling, this one is by far one of the best. Will highly recommend.

this was my third experience at Ali Baba and i will be going again. the chef's choice is recommendable, however go easy and eating everything is more than enough. a suggestion to keep within a budget will also be helpful as a couple of expensive (though excellent) dishes will be thrown in.

This place has excellent Lebanese food, the best on the island. The service and ambiance is also excellent. If you are after real authentic Lebanese food then you should try it out. It is on the expensive side compared to other places but it's on a totally different level so worth every penny. I highly recommend

I live in Malta for 5th year now and I have tried dozens of restaurants during that time. This is my totally favourite one, this lovely lebanese family restaurant has never disappointed me and all my friends and family I took there were very happy too. I recommend trying lot of mezzes maybe even instead of main course to taste... More
