A lovely ambiance, friendly helpful staff and delicious food! This place is hidden from the busy main street but was lovely and I will definitely visit again.

Great food, husband asked if his steak could be pan fried rather than grilled and they accommodated and cooked it to his taste. Lovely little place, great selection of food.

My husband and I stumbled upon this place while looking for something to eat. Really cute little family run restaurant. The food was delicious and the wine was great. We ate a tone of food and drank two bottles of wine and our bill was way less then we could have thought! Definitely would recommend.

Considering how close this gem is situated to the hustle, bustle and sometimes garish town that is Paceville, it is a dream find. Old world decor, intimate surroundings and a genuinely novel menu provide a seriously pleasant evening, allowing you to recover and get back out to the Maltese heat. We had the super Italian platter to start, and Mammas... More

A stone's throw from the Hilton, Maltese Mama doesn't look like a lot from the outside, but the inside is a cosy, friendly family restaurant offering great value 'home-cooked' meals. There were a number of large groups in when we went for dinner and the restaurant soon filled up. Service was still reasonably attentive and we certainly didn't feel rushed.... More

This restaurant is buried away in the back streets behind the Hilton Hotel. There's nothing flashy or showy about this place - they don't need it. The staff are lovely and go out of their way to accommodate you (including allowing us to sit outdoors on their porch). The food speaks for itself. The calamari stew is the best thing... More

This is a very good traditional restaurant serving excellent food if you get the right night. We ate three excellent meals their but one night it was very poor both in respect of quality of food provided and the wait for our meal. We think the difference is the chef and if you get the night the main chef is... More
