As a frequent visitor to l'escargot, I find it ridiculous that anyone can criticize the owners, staff or the quality of food. Such a friendly family run restaurant with a welcoming atmosphere and excellent food that is great value for money. Ignore the keyboard warriors who take pride in upsetting hardworking people and give it a go...you won't be disappointed

We have just come back from Malta and I think it's safe to say that we ate about four times a week at this restaurant. We have held a few extended family get togethers of about 20 people and they have accomodated us with all our needs and Amanda and Norbert also surpised us with a massive birthday cake for... More

As my mum lived in Mellieha my husband and I have visited for in excess of 20 years. L'escargot was always a favourite of ours until Norbert and his wife took over. We visited 2 weeks ago and dined here on our first night, hoping for some improvement. No such luck. The food was mediocre at best with frozen chips!... More

So friendly, absolutely delicious and much better than the surrounding (more expensive) restaurants. The Lasagne tastes just like my Maltese Nana's. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Mellieha.

Awful. Service ok. Food a disgrace! I sat next to tables in the adjacent restaurant desperately wishing I was in their restaurant. Food is shockingly bad. Disappointed! Left hungry.... but never hungry enough to eat that.

The proprietor of the restaurant and his wife are always ready to please . Super friendly and always ready to help . This is one of the best pizzas I have had in Malta. Perfect for a relaxed family meal.

This was our 7th trip to beautiful Malta and each time we've eaten at L'Escargot. Friendly staff and good food. We all enjoyed our meals. Delicious bragioli, Maltese salad with a whole array of delicious Maltese treats, salmon pasta, mussels and of course, snails. Lovely waitress who moved to Malta from Yorkshire. All the staff were attentive and helpful. Never... More
