We walked around the streets of Valletta during the day to find a nice restaurant for the evening. Lots to choose from yet many are tucked away and it is difficult to gauge the dress code from a menu on a wall outside, which is the case for a lot of restaurants in town. Then we found Palazzo Preca, luckily... More

Stumbled on this place as a gal was locking up for the day - she chatted us up and encouraged us to come back....and we did. Had no idea we were walking into a world class dining venue, and the gal with the key is the award winning owner/chef. The location alone - in a true 16th century palazzo, with... More

Visited Palazzo Preca on the occasion of Malta's national feast, St Paul's shipwreck with the rest of my family. Booking in advance is recommended, Service was excellent and staff very cordial. Lunch was above what we expected. The proprietor goes round clients to ensure that all is to one's satisfaction. My young nephews were also served with what children prefer... More

A very old building right in the heart of the beautiful city Valletta, has been converted into an excellent restaurant. Wonderful eating experience. Superb food and attentive staff. Certainly most recommended.

The atmosphere of the place is really great. The place is a converted old town house that has been renovated keeping its original features. The menu was quite varied and as starters we had soup which was really good. Second plate was steak and pasta. Both were just cooked to perfection, the meat just melted in my mouth and its... More

I don't normally write a review as soon as I leave somewhere, but this restaurant deserves it! The food was faultless- fabulous choice and excellent value- but the service was even better than that! The waiting staff were all super attentive and made us feel very welcome. The restaurant is a great mix of majestic surroundings, superb food, but also... More

We went on Valentine’s Day and we can say that the experience at dining in Palazzo Preca was simply perfect. The venue was magnificent, we had a four course meal starting with a delicious amuse bouche, and then for starters we had linguine with rockfish and riso al salto with beef cheeks which were simply amazing. For the main course... More
