I ate at the United restaurant (hard to stomach being a City fan!) on 14 August 2013 with my extended family. We were a large group of English, Maltese and a Portuguese. The menu here is great, lots to choose from together with a good wine list (we went for a Gozitan number). I tried snails for the first time....what have I been missing? Delicious. Between us we had rabbit, steak and fish and lots of happy diners. Great service. Great prices. A must do.

Been there for a couple of times but each time the experience is better and better....seem to be refurbished lately but still maintained its traditional atmosphere (really liked the pictures depicting different iconic places in Malta). Coming to service and hospitality, it is sure good highlighting since service was very friendly and helpful and served in no time. All food tasted was of good quality - starting for the appetizer we were offered traditional Maltese bread with tomato paste, followed by ordered entrees being octopus and snails. Mains ordered were very abundant and exquisite....we had horsemeat, rabbit, quail and chicken....simply delicious. The peanuts and helwa tat-tork give a great end to the meal. Recommend booking to avoid disappointment, especially if having large groups. Great authentic maltese food, in a typical environment at good prices....highly recommend!

Eating at the United restaurant in Mgarr was not planned but it was well worth it. The service and hospitality was excellent. We were given a dish of maltese traditional bread with tomato paste and herbs as an appetizer until we could be served which was not long at all. The main courses we ordered were abundant and very well done and presented. Also the waiter taking care of our table would come to check every so often to see that all was to our liking and to refill the bread basket which may I say contained very appetizing and fresh bread -unlike some restaurants who present stale bread.
To top it all up after dining and plates were taken away the waiter came back with some traditional maltese sweets as well as peanuts on the house.
Thanks for a lovely dining experience we longed to have.

I have been going to United for over a decade now, mainly for rabbit or horse meat. The place has been refurbished, but still maintains its village core atmosphere. The traditional food such as rabbit and horse meat have always been of good quality and large portions with ample chips. The prices are reasonable and the place is great for group meals mostly. I recommend you book, as it is always full. I keep going back for rabbit and will do so again, as the service is good and the food too. Mind you, the service is a bit slow but they are ever so friendly and helpful. The peanuts and helwa ta tork at the end of the meal are a nice touch.
