I booked this restaurant before leaving the UK for a short break. The food was excellent and plenty of choices, they had run out of the local Maltese wine which was disappointing . We couldn't manage a sweet ,and did feel a little too full later but really can't fault the atmosphere or attentive staff. The food was freshly prepared... More

Slightly more up-market feel, but no dress code and not at all pretentious. Fantastic menu - took me a long time to choose what to have! Although it is slightly more pricey, it's good value as you get a very good sized portion. Makes my top 2 choices from a week of eating in Valetta.

Stumbled across here on our first night in Valletta, we are so very pleased we did! Best risotto I've had in a long while! Husband had a steak he certainly knows his steaks and it was great! Lovely start with a complimentary amouse bouche, warm bread with a garlic butter and starved off the hunger pains before the starters. Meal... More

We cannot recommend this restaurant enough, we ate here three times in one week, even choosing to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary here! The food is excellent, with a very wide range to choose from & all the staff provide excellent service & cannot do enough for you! The wine range is great & we chose the local Maltese wines,...

...so why only 3 stars? I took my son and daughter to the restaurant to celebrate on our last night of the holiday. We were warnly welconed and everything went very well until our main courses arrived. My daughter had ordered spaghetti frutti di mare, which was on the menu as containing prawns, mussels and clams. On arrival, there were... More

We had the best meal in Palazzo Preca! Everything from seafood to meat was fresh and delicious. We loved softshell crabs. Meat - lamb and rabbit were the best we had at Malta. Service was excellent!

Service was great and all the staff were very welcoming , helpful and friendly. The food was to die for; I ordered the Australian fillet, and my wife ordered a speciality of the day, 'The Tagliata' . In my opinion it is one of the best fillets that I have ever ordered here in Malta..... simply mouth watering. Atmosphere; Beautiful... More

This was our third time eating in this restaurant and it was as good as ever. The place has had a refurbishment and can now seat more clients. It has certainly improved the place. On the night we ate there within about an hour it was almost full. Highly recommended.

First the good points. Capaccio starter was excellent, as was the pasta. Bad points. White wine was served warm, oyster from the mixed shellfish was dropped by waiter, only to be met with the comment of "it's just the Shell". Chocolate fondant was actually terrible. Served in under a minute after ordering (microwave) it was no fondant but cake which... More
