No decisions necessarily, the food just keeps on coming. Be careful not to eat too much bread as it's delicious with the olive oil. Particularly the lemon chicken was delicious, take note the truffles are spicy!

Very helpful staff. Great choice of tapas style food. Enjoyed very much - quaint dining spaces. Would have gone back but didn't check how often they changed the set menu - it's a selection of local foods in small tapas style portions - enoyed everything and certainly enough food for the money - good value 25 euros fixed price.

Legligin offers a "taster" menu - a veritable feast of home cooking. Dish follows dish - each one delicious and different and fantastic value for money (E17.50 for the largest lunch we can remember). The atmosphere is great - cosy cave-like bistro, with a good view of the immaculate kitchen, and delightful friendly family service. The place is also very... More

Was great having the food explained to you and such a variety!! Albeit a little cramped for us due to the size of our party, which when as hot as it was, proved challenging but nothing that would not stop us going back.

Nicely tucked away not far from the Valletta's main beat. Do not get turned off by the tasteless signboard above the door. Looks like they purchased it at the garage sale and only after that decided to create a restaurant. Achieved good outcome, mind you. You will be served with well balanced "tasting menu" of 10 local/Mediterranean dishes. Nice place,... More

Our last meal in Valletta and we saved the best for last. There were 8 courses in total and each one was lovely. The wine choice is first rate and we needed an extra glass just to cope with the amount of food! Booking is essential and go hungry otherwise you will not manage to stay the course. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Tasting menu, Fantastic service from the lady serving there. Lots of little Maltese dish, A great way of being able to try the local delicacies without having to go to lots of different places!! For the amount of food you get, it is amazing value for lunch at €17.50pp Highly Recommend going here but booking essential for the evenings.

We came across this restaurant by chance one night and were delighted with the food we were served. The taster menu gave us the opportunity to try local foods we might not have selected for ourselves. Each of the eight or so plates was delicious - we particularly liked the warm rabbit livers. The staff were lovely and welcoming and... More

Legligin brings a certain amount of style to Valletta, the taster concept is well understood and the food is fundamentally Maltese/Mediterranean but with a fresh take. We tried to get in one evening with no joy, for evenings you must book, our meal was taken at lunchtime when we dropped in and easily got a table. Fantastic decor and very... More
