“The most succulent suckling pig.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

The best suckling pig on the island! A great place for Sunday lunch or weekday dinner or a romantic dinner.

The appetisers are very tasty and the Maltese bread served is very fresh and crunchy.

The have an excellent choice of wine at a reasonable price.

The ambience is great, its old castle with a quiet atmosphere in a tucked away village road. I suggest you go during the day or use a GPS as there is a chance you get lost.

The staff are also very friendly and do their best to cater for special requests.

A great place for group bookings or for a romantic dinner for two!

I have been on many occassions and was never let down.

“one of my fav getaway corners on the island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

great service in a quiet setting with good quality food and ample wine selection. Absolute value for money. Strenghtens my beleif that if you offer something good, even if you are in the most remote of places, people will still make it a point to come and find you :)

“Relaxed country dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2012

I took a team of six people to this beautiful rustic restaurant on Malta, its a little tucked away but the quality of the food and the service was top class. My team and I had the most beautiful relaxed dinner in wonderful surroundings.

“Very good food but away from the world.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

We were 11 having dinner at this very nice place. The athmosphere was very nice and cosy. The place is like a small castel. We had the suckling pig and it was great. Also we had a very good amount of apitisers. The stuff was also very friendly and helpful. Everything was nice but the place is situated at tal-Landrijiet L/O Rabat and it is far away from civilization. You have to pass from a narrow road full of humps etc and its not convenient when traveling at night. Apart from all it was a good experience.

“Quite, friendly, unique food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2011

Rogantinos is found in Landrijiet, Limits of Rabat. You have to drive through a remote road however its not that far from the center of Rabat. The food is excellent and the service too. You usually won't find a lot of people dining, but sometime you can see group having suckling pig nights! This place is idea for friends who like to share a suckling pig night and the price is really worth it! I recommend to book a table and if you are a couple and would to eat suckling pig, you can call and ask if there is going to be a group eating suckling pig and if yes you can join them, of course of a separate table. You won't find children running around or noises. This place is ideal also for Hens or Bachelors parties, small weddings and receptions. You should really visit this restaurant!
