Cozy and intimate restaurant a few blocks off the main tourist street. It looked to me like most diners were locals. Two-page menu plus specials of the day - meat, fish, fresh pasta. Good wine list. Every dish was well done, and service was good. Guze earned its top rating with us that night. Best to make a reservation.

My wife and I loved this place. It is both atmospheric and has excellent food. The food was certainly better than the usual fare eaten by tourists but without a huge price premium. It was a little hard to find but it was worth the effort.

A new restaurant to us this year. We had planned to go to Rubino's but it was shut. However we weren't disappointed. My starter of rabbit croquette was lovely, served on a carrot puree and red onion chutney. This was followed by a mushroom risotto, full of flavour. We ended the meal with passion fruit pannacotta. Cost, €64 for two... More

A quaint little restaurant off a side street in Valletta, the place is half underground giving the sense that you're sat in the wine cellar. Great ambience and very attentive staff. We only ordered mains as we have been in Malta a week and aren't used to the Maltese portions we've been given! We were given an amuse bouche of... More

Clean friendly place, professional and courteous staff, wonderful décor. Excellent attention to detail in every aspect. One of our favorite restaurant experiences anywhere. Too small to accommodate kids but if... More

We went to Guze Bistro on a recommendation on our first night in Valletta after booking online. The list of daily specials was interesting, with plenty of fresh seafood. Tuna steak was cooked perfectly medium-rare. But the highlight was the starter of pasta with wild boar ragu, which was delicious. Chocolate fondant for dessert is also highly recommended! The service... More
