We ate at Il Galeone quite by chance. Wandering along the harbour front we opted for a quieter, air conditioned, less touristy restaurant for our lunch with friends. We chose fresh sea food and the very traditional rabbit on the menu - all delicious! Our waiter was very friendly and attentive replenishing our drinks quickly on request with a ready smile. Generally we found it pretty difficult to find good food during our week in Malta and this was our first really fabulous meal.

After some disastrous meals in other restaurants we were rather cautious about visiting this one but it turned out to be a bit of heaven. Lovely white linen tablecloths and napkins, a quiet but friendly atmosphere and great staff. A basket of bread and butter was presented and then some toasted bruschetta with tomato, onions, olive oil and fresh herbs was put down while we waited for our starters and main course. The food was simply cooked but very flavoursome and the vegetables were perfect. We did not try desserts as we were full but the coffee was great and inexpensive. It was so nice we ate there three times and the standard did not drop. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone going to Malta.

This is located on the South front, opposite Valetta, and near Burger King. There is a good choice of menu items and all are cooked to order. All meals we had were of good quality, and once we found this restaurant we didn't go anywhere else. We would only have a main course, and wine, finding this to be enough. They also included bread and an amuse bouche of toasted bread with a chopped onion and tomato topping. This is a family concern, all staff were friendly. One could eat at pavement tables or inside.
