Pre book!! This place is tiny so is super busy and normally you can’t get a walk by table. The atmosphere and vibe is great, the staff and service was amazing. Food was delicious. 4 stars because I would have liked more options for food....More

I came across Rootz by accident but it was so welcoming, great music wafting from inside and a lovely menu, I as drawn in. Highly recommend this place. I will make it my first choice for eating in future when I visit beautiful Valletta.

Ingredients are top fresh, wine is awesome, street is gorgeous, charming music....More
