Visited with a family during a short break in Olsztyn. We had a various dishes and all was so delicious. I would strongly recommend tagliatelle with mushroom. Staff was friendly and professional. Please do not expect short waiting time as the food is freshly prepared....I would definitely recommend this place and will be back.More

My first visit to Old Town Olsztyn, and my friend brought me to this restaurant to taste the traditional Polish food. Really loved it, and the hot beer also.

A friend recently recommended Malta which had not been on our list of places we tend to frequent in Olsztyn. Turns out after 4 visits, we have been largely delighted with Malta. The decor is eclectic and comfortable, sort of "shabby chic" and the staff...friendly and accommodating. The food quality is not "heavy-handed" as we have become somewhat accustomed to. The preparations show a level of skill in the kitchen that is definitely a cut above both in flavors and presentation. On our first visit, I had a Golonka (pork knuckle) special with a demi-glace that was the best I have ever eaten. My partner's trout was also excellent. On other occasions, I had a pumpkin soup which was velvety and perfectly seasoned and the dessert special was a pumpkin cheesecake that was to die for. Not over-sweetened and a marvelous texture. The hummus and felafel starter was also very good, served with a drizzle of olive oil, whole marinated garbanzos and olives, and toasted baguette. I also had an app of shrimp sauteed in olive oil with garlic and hot pepper. While a touch oversalted, still quite good, served with baguette to mop up the garlicky, spicy olive oil. We enjoy casual dining and eschew stuffiness, and Malta has a down to earth feeling about it that really makes us feel at ease. Not pompous, not stuffy yet with a creative, surprising kitchen. Definitely worth a try!More

Excellent food, interesting, local and seasonal ingredients. If you are looking for a place to eat in Olsztyn, stop looking and enter. Ate there on numerous occasions, the food was always fresh and perfectly cooked.

A wonderful restaurant with extremely tasty fresh food , excellent chefs , knowledgeable and friendly waiters/waitresses and a fantastic experience. Every time I visit the food is always of high standard and the restaurant looks beautiful. During peak times,be prepared to wait but it is...well worth it . The fish dishes are the star of the show. Summer outdoor seating and private function are an additional bonus. The prices are also competitive and great value for money . A must visit ..More

We dropped there in only for a coffee, but I was a little hungry so I took a starter. It was a piece of baguette with grilled trout and adjika souce. It is a little spicy Georgian souce based on red peppers. This starter was...fantastic. I took one portion which was immediately ate by my wife and my brother-in-law. I took another one which was also grabbed in half by son :). I have to come there because also other positions in menu looked very interesting in terms of description.More

We went looking for a Mediterranean menu and were a bit disappointed that it was largely Polish... There is not even a Maltese theme to the decor and pics. Apart from that everything worked out well enough, although the wine list was a bit disappointing....Seems to be popular with some heavy local business figures...More

Menu is average, but there was one surprise. Cow tongue. I never tried that before. So of course I had to have that for dinner. It was amazing. I really and surprisingly loved it! It was really tasty, and the meat was tender and the...sauce was good. Just try it, okay? :-)More

Shared an excellent dinner with family on our first night in Olsztyn. Everything we ordered was delicious and presented well. The restaurant was busy so clearly people know it's good! Tagliatelle with chicken and mushrooms, the steak and the beef tartare were especially good!

We went there last Sunday with a group of 5 adults and 3 kids. We got the appetizers after one hour and 15 min. We've waited another 20min for the rest of the food and still didn't get it. We left hungry and mad. Another...customer was complaining as well that he's been waiting for the soup for an hour.... One big disrespectful and thoughtless mess. Never again for sure...More

Nice looking place and nice beer garden, but I think that's all. Waiters are extremely slow, we were waiting outside about 15 minutes before anybody noticed us. Bartender was very young, I guess he was hired from a street because he had absolutely no clue...about making drinks. We asked for Mojitos and Cosmopolitans and we got read bottled drinks in stead of fresh made. Food is very average, absolutely no worth the price. So i you appreciate good drinks and food, I'd recommend to choose different place.More

We visit in March, Food was OK, chicken with mango salsa wasn't what would you expect after MANGO salsa and my salmon was swimming in the salad dressing, but the real disappointment was the waiter. After he was banging plates on the table, we asked...him for one extra coke, he kind of passed it to us without even reaching table (place was almost empty), he didn't say "thank you" after we paid just dropped card on the table, turned around and walked away. Left us speechless. He was more interested with talking to the owner (probably) than attending tables. Long time I haven't had such a bad experience in Poland. We will not come back.More
