Villa at Le Meridien is a stylish restaurant. We ate outside and had great views of the bay. It is expensive compared to most restaurants in Malta so it is a place to visit for special occasions. We had mixed platters for starter and a variety of dishes for the main course - all were excellent. I had red snapper... More

Just back from dinner at the villa. We were recommended by people who ate here last night. The menu is all over the place and we all struggled to find something to eat. The view across the bay was stunning and the best thing about the evening. Our waiter stunk to high heaven of dry sweat and urine which made... More

During out stay at Le Meridien we had dinner at The Villa. It has the best view in town and the lighting created a romantic ambience. The food was delicious and the staff very friendly. However keep in mind that it all comes at a high price.

Wonderful setting overlooking the bay and high quality food and great service. I had smoked tomato soup then pork belly with mixed veg and finished with strawberry and vanilla mess. Top quality food and presentation but a bit overpriced in my opinion - i paid €55 for the above and a glass of wine. Nearby restaurants are half that price... More

Stunning view with trendy lounge atmosphere & music in heart of St Julian. Via on church and delicious cocktails before - after dinner. Delicious food and top service! Romantic must in otherwise noisy St Julian.

We were here as part of a family pre wedding get together. From start to finish the experience was excellent. Friendly, attentive staff. Beautiful, fresh food served impeccably. Stunning setting. Really worth a visit if in St Julian's.
