Not too crowded, excellent service and delicious food. Visited two days in a row. First evening enjoyed desserts and next day went back for the main course. Both were excellent.

Visited recently for lunch and dinner. This small restaurant offers excellent local dishes, especially 'bunny', which is delicious and served in a variety of guises. The staff are very attentive and willing to adapt to accommodate customers individual requirements. Excellent value for money. Popular with the Maltese.

We chanced upon this little place by accident and it was a highlight of our visit to Malta. We had only one course but the chef sent out a complimentary delicious little teaser. Soup and bruschetta. My partner ordered the special of the day - a tuna dish and I had the seafood hotpot. The serves were generous and up... More

We are couple who like good food but are broke so we have the entertainer app to save on some mula. The dining experience was excellent from start to finish as well as very polite service. I highly recommend this quiet and cosy restaurant for a romantic evening with your 'better' half :)

Forget what the sign says outside Angelica - come here for the best rabbit in Malta. My partner had red snapper which was cooked and filleted to perfection. Fantastic food here and was very impressed with the complementary starter.

We had the special, which was the Blue Fin Tuna that we don't find in Australia and it was absolutely delicious. Perfectly cooked and complemented with baked zucchini in a beautiful homemade tomato and caper sauce.

Was wandering around Valletta in search of somewhere local and not too touristy to have dinner. Happened upon Capistran by accident and liked the look of the menu. What an absolute fine it turned out to be. A lovely, quiet and tasteful restaurant with a tiny staff. Only one waiter who couldn't have been more friendly and charming. I ordered... More

Good food and very friendly service. I will not yell you that is very profissional but the attention received makes up for the lack of technical expertise. They had a fish of the day, special pasta in addition to a local modern cuisine. Local wine, recommended by the waiter, expensive for the quality. Overall very good.

A very pleasant restaurant popular with the locals. Lunch was a shred board of antipasto of goat's cheese, white beans, broad bean puree, Maltese sausage and sundried tomatoes. Excellent. Followed by the fresh fish of the day (Meagre) and the seafood pot of mussels, calms, prawns and calamari washed down with a bottle of Maltese Palatino Sauvignon blanc. Delicious
