“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We went there for a Friday night meal and the entire place was booked out; while we were there, the staff had to turn away several groups who had turned up hoping to find a free table.

The staff were friendly, the wine was nice, the steak was sublime, the octopus was okay and the overall experience great.

Go and have the mushroom soup and then the steak.

“Still a fantastic restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

It has been almost 12 months since we last visited L'Artist. We booked a table before arriving in Malta and wondered if Gino and the team would be as good as previously. We needn't have worried; if anything the food was even better and the buzz of locals and tourists mixing in the restaurant gives a lively welcoming atmosphere.
We started with soup (mushroom and strawberry) an odd sounding but lovely mix and penne a maltje which was full of texture and flavour. For mains we opted for Sea Bass (Brilliantly melt in the mouth texture) and Duck and Grouper which with the sauce is a meal worth waiting 11 months to have again. It remains our favourite.
As before, if you find yourself in Sliema and want a great meal do try to book a table here.

“Thought I might as well try the Number 1 on Trip Advisor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Visited Malta for a week and had a few meals in the Fortina Spa resort where we were staying. Some good some bad so checked Trip Advisor and found the No 1 ranked resuarant in Sliema was only a short distance away. We had not booked on our last night but managed to get a free table. It's a small restuarant on a side street but easy enough to find. The hosts could not have been more helpful and the food delicious. The Sea Bass fillets are my recommendation.

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

We went to this small restaurant after checking tripadvisor. It clearly deserves the superior ranking! The service was marvelous (Gino was a wonderful host!) and the seabass was amazingly good.
After ordering the seabass I saw the seafood ravioli being served to an adjacent table and mentionned to our server that it looked SO good. She asked if I wanted to order it, but since I had already placed my order I knew it would be too much to eat. However, later she brought me one telling me it was the last one left! It was one of the best raviola I have ever eaten.
If we were staying longer, this would positively be a place to which we would return.
