We went to Rubina towards the end of our week in Valletta and after trying several other highly rated places, Rubina beat all of the for us.
It is a bit tucked away but well worth the visit, with the owner keeping things moving efficiently and providing entertaining chat along the way. The menu is chalked on the wall daily so everything changes according to what is fresh and available. We had a neonati (a small local fish) pasta and sheep's cheese for starter, both lovely, while my wife floowed with a fish called gurbel, and I had spaghetti with seafood sauce, both very Maltese and delicious. We shared a Cassata Siciliana (a type of cake, not the ice cream we English assume) for dessert, something of a house special as the owner was a confectioner when he first set up.
Very enjoyable and very good value.
