Whereas the first time I want I was wowed by the different concept of eating, the second visit a year later allowed me to concentrate more on the actual food without the distractions offered by the new eating style of 10 courses, all very small of course. I have to say I am still very impressed with the quality, the... More

We really enjoyed our visit to Legligin, we had the tasting menu and struggled to eat it all, but still managed to find room for some chocolate truffles for desert. Staff were really friendly.

I visited this place in early 2013, and it came VERY highly recommended by the owner of my holiday rental. It had no sign that I could see, but was just a big red door in a row of buildings, in Valetta. Having established that it was actually the right place, I chose the taster menu, and was bowled over... More

Unique setup - everyone has the tasting menu, so you don't need to pick anything. I think there were 6-7 courses, but it isn't too much of a facing as each is small enough. Gives a great range things to try. The menu may change, but when we went we had mushroom soup, meat platter, fish selection, pasta dish, meatballs... More

Amazing. Course after course after course of typical Maltese food. Make sure you save room as they keep bringing out food! I was even given some rabbit stew even though it wasn't supposed to be on the set menu the night we ate! Service was fantastic as was the ambience. We went in earlier in the day and booked a...

Wonderful place! Takes all the hassle out of choosing from a menu, by giving you a little of everything. Well spaced out between courses, so make sure you have plenty of time to spare. food and wine and atmosphere encourage good conversation! Only problem was not knowing when we'd finished! Will,recommend to friends. Note, walnut allergy was well accommodated, with... More

A beautiful wine bar with an amazing array of Maltese influenced tapas dishes! Really fun trying a bunch of tasty dishes and sipping on some local wines - and they were so helpful in accommodating a Vegetarian guest too. A must for anyone visiting Valetta!

We also stumbled on this wine bar/restaurant during a thunderstorm. Lovely place with friendly staff. Storm lasted longer than we thought and we ended up with some of the tasting menu which was very good. Have only given 4/5 solely because we did not have a meal as such. I have no doubt it would have been a 5 if... More
