We were in Valletta, looking for somewhere for lunch. Wasn't eas to did somewhere with good indoor seating. We consulted our trip advisor app and found Rubino.

It's a little off the beaten track with a front door that you would walk right past however in inside a small restaurant across 3 floors. The menu is written on the wall and a good selection of meat fish and veggie options. Our children shared the steak which was delicious and I had the sea bass which was also very tasty. All in all a pleasant lunch and a nice find.

My second visit to this small restaurant (about 25 covers) but with an extensive menu including rabbit (local speciality) and good veggie dishes and great wine list. Good value too, under £90 for 3 course dinner for 2 with wine.

We visited this restaurant based on reviews, glad we did. Service was excellent. Food and wine really good. I chose veal which was very succulent and really enjoyable. Good wine and also complimentary limoncello at the end of the meal. Good value for money. Well worth a visit.

We made a special trip to Valletta to find the restaurant we had intended to eat in was closed ... Never mind ! Robino was open ! The welcome was friendly , the menu was extensive n the explanation of the same was detailed n patient . The wines on offer were good and reasonable prices .
My husband had rabbit (I can hear the English gasp in horror !!) and I had steak , both booked to perfection with veg and potatoes to accompany . This really was a lovely meal , lovely staff , finished with cossata gelato and a swig of the local limoncello on the house . Well worth a visit and again and again x

The restaurant was busy with local diners - usually a good sign and we weren't disappointed. A Saturday night on a fiesta weekend, we arrived without a booking but were welcomed into a busy restaurant. The staff were friendly and helpful and the food lovely. I would recommend Rubino to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to return.
