We'd heard good things about this restaurant, so booked ahead when we got to Malta. Our starters came, but the rabbit tortellini looked shop bought, rather than homemade and was swimming in some kind of balsamic, watery jus. Mains were slightly better, I had sea bass, but still seemed to be lacking. Good choice of wines. Desserts were all pre-made... More

I find the good reviews for this place very surprising: The service is extremely slow, we waited 20 minutes to have our orders taken, another 20 minutes to get our drinks, and well over an hour from our order to get our food. My guess is the kitchen staff are not actually trained to cook for multiple people at once... More

I came here with my family and I had a fabulous steak with mushrooms. They also were very kind with my little daughter, providing her food very fast (especially in comparison with the average maltese restaurants)

We visited this restaurant on previous visit to Malta and loved it so we decided to give it a second go. I'm afraid it was a total off night, as the restaurant was full we were seated up stairs and forgotten about when we eventually received our food it was served on cold plates and was barely warm. I must... More

My wife and I dined at l'Artist on Saturday 24/09/16. The atmosphere, the food and the service was satisfactory but I was disappointed when I asked for a fiscal receipt with my payment with the flimsy excuse that they could not issue one because the printer was not functioning! Surely, these people know that in such cases there exists a... More

A lovely restaurant with a "homey" feel. We were made to feel very welcome. The food is very nice and lovingly prepared. The portion sizes are pretty large. You will need to book or at least turn up as soon as it opens as it seems very popular and we were fortunate to get one of the only unbooked tables

Small family business restaurant but very cosy and the owner is very nice. We went for a dinner - I had octopus and my wife a pasta (don't recall the name). The octopus and the side veg were amazing, I dare to say the best I've tried so far. The pasta was also very good and the sauce was amazing.

Can't fault the food, our seafood platter was excellent. There was some confusion about the drinks we ordered so we ended up with a different (more expensive) bottle of wine than we ordered but none the less it was good and accompanied our dish very well. Decor is nice enough, staff too, price- quality ratio definitely ok. The ideal place... More
