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

The place is close to where we're staying and we decided to give it a try. We tasted both traditional and seafood meals and it was fresh, absolutely delicious and it melts in your mouth. The staff was OK and so was the whole experience. If we were staying longer we'd surely haven given it another try.

We were lucky enough to get a table in the sunshine and had one of the best pizzas I've ever eaten. We ordered a cooling shandy each, and were served by a very pleasant, friendly lady. Prices were excellent, and toilet facilities clean! I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for its good quality, tasty food.

This is an excellent Restaurant! It seems to be the centre of life in Mellieha with an excellent atmosphere. To me, its a great sign to see mostly locals there. The owner serves FANTASTIC coffee from a very expensive looking machine with a flavour to match. It was quiet but it was also early morning but still had 3 tables... More
