My partner and I went for supper at The Villa after a day in Valetta and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The wine was delicious (we went for Maltese wine) and the staff were great. The pudding was a bit of a let down but all in all a lovely meal and we would recommend to future Malta vacationers.

We enjoyed many a cocktail at the Villa and were able to admire the view whilst doing so. We also attended a wedding reception here and couldn't fault the food, staff or atmosphere. Absolutely idyllic and would highly recommend.

The Villa is the staple of be-seen people in the Balluta area. We visited with friends with a view to simply catch up and enjoy the gorgeous views. Please note that we didn't eat here. This review is for drinks only. Balluta Bay is a lovely part of Malta - it's busy but The Villa offers a really nice getaway... More

This seemed quite busy, there was a two private areas outside with functions happening, but we still managed to get an outside table over-looking Balluta Bay at night which is stunning. The bar is outside too! We came for after dinner drinks and when we told our server this she helpfully suggested a good cocktail which we both really enjoyed... More

The Villa has not disappointed us on the three times that we have visited. Perfect for a stop in if staying at Le Meridien as well! Staff are very attentive and at night when siting on either terrace the villa has lovely views across Balutta bay all lit up. Food is very good, we would recommend their tapas as well... More

The restaurant has a beautiful view, the food was decent but nothing to rave about and service was absolutely awful. If you're not looking for a special dinner or asking for good service, the view makes the restaurant worth the visit.

Seafront restaurant facing the beautiful Balluta Bay. Open air option weather permitting which is 90% of the time in Malta.
