We ate out during our whole stay in Malta and this was definitely my favourite restaurant! We went into this restaurant because the food looked interesting, the prices were more reasonable than most and we couldn't figure out why no one else was in there!!! Best decision we made! The service is wonderful and very friendly. The food is great... More

Nice restaurant and good food, offering very good value. The charming and very courteous waitress has been commented on by other reviewers and we must have met the same person - she seemed genuinely pleased to see us and even wrote out a recipe for something we liked. This must be the friendliest restaurant in town.

We were so impressed with the hostess friendliness and courtesy even though it was rather late. It was an unexpected surprise when we were even asked to taste the wine ordered by the glass. And what a pleasure it was to order with someone who spoke in maltese at a restaurant. Well done Crianza. We'll be back.

We arrived in Malta on the 17th January and happened to walk past in the evening. However, it was closed for an extra hour due to maintenance so we came back the next evening for a celebratory birthday dinner for my girlfriend. We ordered a small pasta, pizza, small chips and two drinks and it came to just under €24.... More

Crianza is well situated - a spacey restaurant with a great variety of (very reasonably priced) food - their pasta is super yummy. They serve a great (free) bigilla dip and bread every time and both remain unbeatable! The staff is very welcoming and just the right amount of friendly. I would recommend Crianza anytime!

Been at this restaurant a couple of times before, and every time it was up to expectations. Serving staff is friendly and attentive, whilst the atmosphere is casual and relaxing. We opted for pasta and both dishes looked and tasted great. Were also offered a nice antipasto and a digestive drink after our meal, on the house. Will definitely visit... More
