Back in Valletta again. Two visits to Capistrano and both were excellent. The rabbit main course was delicious as was the vanilla pannacotta. Cost for two with one glass of wine and water was €56. Worth every penny.

I really recommend this restaurant in Old Bakery Street. The service was attentive and efficient, and the food was excellent. We started with the Maltese platter starter, which is not far short of a main meal in itself, and then the rabbit (in numerous different forms) and the veal. The latter particularly tasty, and nearly melted in the mouth! The... More

It was a return trip for me to Vallette after 15 years and I wanted to show my wife around all the nooks and crannies. We came across Capistrano Restaurant by accident and what a gem. Its a very small place with about 8 tables but this takes nothing away from it [ I hate large inpersonal canteen types ].... More

This is a tiny restaurant one block off the main drag. I am so happy that we found it. The food was so delicious. I ordered the chicken risotto and would love to have some more right now. The service was perfect and the price was reasonable. A winner.

Delicious food - interesting variety on the menu, including fresh local ingredients, cooked beautifully. Tuna carpaccio was amazing, as was the rabbit. Desserts all sounded wonderful; I was too full, but my friend's cheesecake was delicious.Food all beautifully presented, portions not too off-puttingly huge. Service was efficient and attentive and friendly without being obsequious. Off the beaten track a bit,... More

We walked past Capistrano one night and had a look at the menu and decided to try the next night. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, fresh and reasonably priced. I guess you would call it modern Maltese. The service was exemplary and we were given complimentary soup and bruschetta due to our starters taking a while... More

Very happy with this choice. Small place so might need to book, but we got the last unbooked table on a Friday night. Really enjoyed the local specials (Maltese sausage followed by rabbit). Very unfussy, and felt like a mix of locals and various nationalities in there. Would certainly recommend.

We were fortunate to get a table as we hadn't booked anywhere for dinner in La Valletta and we had been turned down by several restaurants. A memorable dinner with incredible attention given in the preparation and presentation of the dishes not to mention the excellent service. The waiter went far beyond the call of duty, not only phoning for... More
