Wander off the main street in Valletta and look for the smaller restaurants - they are a joy. Valletta in the evening was fairly quiet during our visit in November and it had been a mixed day weatherwise. However, we were treated like royalty, the dishes were explained and we watched the chef cook everything. The food and wine were excellent. Try this restaurant for its tradition, beautifully presented food.

I had lunch with 2 friends on 28 November. There was only one other diner in the restaurant at the time. Food was superb and the service was first class. Would definitely return .

My wife and I went for lunch here yesterday and we both really enjoyed it. The restaurant itself is very cosy and the staff present made their utmost to make us feel comfortable.
I would suggest booking beforehand since there arent that many tables and the restaurant is popular.
The menu offers a good choice and the specials of the day also give a value added. My wife and I opted to share two different pastas - one was the pancotti filled with Mushrooms and the other was a special - the ravioli with Crab and fish - which was also served with a king prawm What can I say, the past was simply delicous and cooked to perfection.
As a main we both opted for the rolled sea bream with a spinach and prawn stuffing. This was good, however one slight criticism of this dish was that the different elements didnt come together too well. Possibly rather than having a whole king prawn in the middle of the fish and spinach I would suggest mixing the prawn meat with the spinach before hand and then roll the sea bream with this stuffing.
For desert we opted to share a chocolate fondant which was delicous.
Hopefully we will have the opportunity to re-visit in the near future.
