Il Galeone is a restaurant which for thirty years has maintained a high level in service and food. Being a small restaurant it offers a cosy and warm ambiance. Dishes are varied and are all freshly prepared. Make it a point to pay this restaurant a visit. You will not regret it.

Wonderful food, faultless professional and friendly service. If you become a regular customer you can be certain that all your preferences in food and wine will be meticulously remembered. I am a regular customer starting 2010 and hope to remain one as long as I travel to Malta

Returned to the restaurant as visited the previous year and the food and service continues to be excellent. Took other members of the family aged 9 to 75 and all said they would return. Thank you. An intimate, popular restaurant so book if a larger party.
