Make sure you prebook your visit before going. The place is quite small. I've had the sizzling chicken and chorizo dish. The chicken was tender and the mixture of their juices and flavor with the couscous and veg was epic. Divine, will surely be back. Reasonably priced and suitable for vegetarians.

Best Indian food I've had in years. Naan melted in my mouth. Spices were wonderful. Great attentive service. Would recommend to anyone. Just looks like a hole in the wall, hiding a Jem!!!

This was our penultimate night in Valletta and wish we'd found this place sooner! We had a table by the door and yet still felt intimate. My husband and I shared a cold mezze which was delicious and everything was definitely home made. Main course I had a medium curry (which was hotter than I expected) though nevertheless was my...

This true gem just keeps amazing us. I'm vegetarian, my partner is far from it. It can be challenging to find a restaurant where we both have plenty of choice and can truelly enjoy a meal. Not here though. Amazing food, amazing service, amazing atmosphere. We came here august 11th as a birthday diner and even though we've been here... More

It's our last day in Malta and we came across this restaurant offering a decent selection of food. We ordered some drinks, starters and some mezees. The guy turns around and says he is going to charge us €4 per head because we didn't order any mains. I think this is absolutely ridiculous and as customers we should not be... More

We came to La Mere for dinner after work. I had heard many good things about this place so I had very high expectations. We were a large table, but we were serviced in a timely fashion. The food was divine; although I might be biased as Arabic cuisine is my favourite. La Mere serves Mediterranean and Indian dishes also,... More

We tried this place because we both had wanted to try it for a while and the review in THE DEFINITIVE[LY] GOOD GUIDE was positive overall. We enjoyed ourself thoroughly, they also allow you to bring your own wine to the restaurant if you want. They just have a €4.50 corking fee.
