I wrote a long review but got lost. Basically really rubbish food, worst had for a long time. How is recommended by Michelin is incomprehensible. Just avoid.

Outstanding experience! Wine and food pairing menu are out of this world, especially Argentinian Rib eye steak. Selection of wines is also good, especially the red ones (Syrah, Tempranillo, Ruby). Cocktails are excellent. Satisfied with the service and staff - even though it was not...booked in advance, they found as a great table and really gave their best that we feel pleasant and welcome. 5 stars absolutely deserved, and will be back! 😊More

The view from this restaurant is amazing, unparalleled! The food tasted fabulous, we had the set menu with the wine pairing and it surpassed our expectations. The open kitchen is a great addition. The staff were very attention and all were knowledgable and passionate about...the menu. Great experience.More

Delightful experience. Cocktails were great and we enjoyed the degustation and wine pairing. The steak tartare was unlike any other I have had and was fabulous. My wife loved the risotto- rich and tasty. Service was attentive and relaxed which was what we wanted so...that we could enjoy the evening. Please - confirm the name of the Maltese olive oil offered with a selection of breads. - if not too cheeky - how did you marinate the blueberries?More

We booked restaurants during our stay in Malta based on Michelin stars/ recommendation. Seems the restaurant had a star in 2021 which today so not anymore understandable. Food is best average, nothing to remember. We booked a table at the wine cellar but got seated...as everyone at the terrace which is rather cold in April. Drinks fine, starters ok but main dish really basic meat. Nothing which deserves a star or 40$ per plate when you can eat in Malta for half or less. Music running in the background, toilets questionable and and and… Forget the star and think of a regular tourist restaurant with good view.More

Our experience was patchy. Initially we were well greeted however, although provided with a pre meal drink, it took the best part of three quarters of an hour before being seated. It then took a further half an hour before being attended to. The staff...were working extremely hard though there were only three servers front of house, and for the number of customers quite inadequate. The food was very good and, when time was available to them, the service friendly and professional. We would love to dine here when fully staffed.More

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate his birthday. Everything was great since I contacted the manager Alison to make his night special. She was extremely helpful and very attentive through emails. We arrived to the restaurant and the barman hosted us and offered something...to drink on the Bar Area. He was very friendly, and the cocktails he made were delicious. Time for dinner. We went for the Degustation and Wine Pairing Menu which is absolutely a must to try. The food, the timing between the courses, the wines and their descriptions, the views of Valletta, the nice atmosphere, the excellent service and friendly staff... It couldn't be better. My boyfriend and I want to thank you Alison and your great team, who made that night super special for us. And last but not least, compliments to the chefs and their hard job and dedication. Well definitely come back. 😉😁More

Location is fantastic, atmosphere buzzing. Service extremely attentive (couldn’t believe when I saw bad service mentioned in other reviews). But most of all the value for money is outstanding. The 7-course tasting menu with a drinks pairing was only €75. You are not going to...find better value for money for an experience like that on the island. Taste-wise the food and wine were very good (worthy of the bib gourmand) in particular I must commend the tartare with soyed egg yolk, which a particular highlight. If you get a choice of where to sit I recommend the indoor terrace (at this time of year anyway). In March / April it will be amazing to see the evening sun cast against the Valletta skyline across the bay.More

Not quite the trifecta as the steakhouse underwhelmed in the area of steaks. Argentinian steaks are 2 /3rd tier compared to other options. The rest of the food was like good hotel fare. Not great but not horrible. Special shout -outs toNicki for her amazingly...bubbly service and the manager Allison(?) who accommodated our scheduling miscue and chose some great wines for us. . On the business end of things- I was charged twice and have been in credit card dispute hell . They admit to double charging for my meal. This was a couple hundred euros so no small mistake, and refuse to make it right.More

We have eaten at the Chophouse for many years when in Malta and previously found the experience - and the food - to be excellent. The ambience and the service was good last night but the food was terrible - the Ribeye steak was full...of fat and not cooked as requested. The Mess dessert was tasteless and the Petit Fours were the worst thing I have every tasted - inedible. Overall we all rated it terrible and it cost us Euros 200 for 3 people for that. We did point out the poor quality of the steak to the waitress but no real recognition of this nor recompense was forthcoming. Not at all what I would expect of a Michelin level restaurant anywhere in the world and certainly not of the formerly fantastic Chophouse. After visiting over 10 years we will now not be returning.More

We found quite offensive to be charged 2.30 euro for an espresso lungo and 2.00 for a normal espresso. We can’t see the logic, we reported to the waiter (who was actually quite embarrassing ) and asked to talk to the manager, but he/she never...shown up, which is even worse…such a stupid and poor speculation.More

Contrary to other reviews, the food came incredibly fast and service was wonderful, paired with a cozy atmosphere. The food was truly tasty, starting with an amazing appetizer and ending with a well-balanced dessert, although the main course was not the most imaginative and quite...heavy (I would suggest playing with more textures and tastes to balance it, as well as adding several other side dishes). However, it would be appreciated if the staff wore their masks over their noses at all times, considering we are facing a pandemic. A well deserved 5 star review and Michelin distinction.More
