Every time we visit Malta we make the Plum Tree our first dining experience. John and Joan are the best hosts who run the place with a lot of love. The food is a product of this love, excellent traditional Maltese food mixed with John's Chefmanship (not a word but should be!!) We have been as a couple and as... More

Run by a lovely Maltese lady and an excellent chef. Prices reasonable, service excellent and cooking out of this world. Food arrived piping hot. Went there last year and had Lampuki - it was to die for! This year we went on three different occasions (I'm working my way through the menu!) and the owner remembered us from previous visits!...

We had a dinner with a group of friends here and the food is excellent, not at all expensive and the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Head chef - John and his wife know how to keep their guests happy and satisfied! Highly recommended!
