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

We stumbled upon this Restuarant while walking along old Bakery street. Zero expectation but pleasantly positive: the one waiter was attentive and non intrusive. Food was excellent! The deconstructed carrot cake was atypical but interesting. Highly recommended.

We made a reservation at this place for dinner on New Year's eve, based on the reviews for this place, its location and the tempting New Year's menu. We were not disappointed at all: the food was really great and so was the service.

Had a swordfish carpaccio that really tasted like...swordfish carpaccio, and some interesting Paccheri with Maltese sausage ragout. What can I say- fully met expectations. Dishes carefully prepared, savours and flavours you could actually discern and appreciate, good wine list, honest prices. No Nouvelle Cuisine BS : ) Thumbs up.

Capistrano offers a range of Maltese and Italian main dishes, and English-style desserts. As such, it quite reflects Malta's diverse influences cuisine-wise. They try to source the ingredients as locally as possible.
