What can I say? We booked at last minute and asked if there was a veggie option. Told no problem, so off we went.
On entry, there are two floors for dinners, one on ground floor and one below. There are c.7 tables- 3 upstairs, 4 downstairs. We were on the ground floor which is delightful- barrelled ceilings and airy but quaint. The atmosphere is calm and relaxed and private.
The menu changes daily to accommodate best seasonal, best food- so no, it is not listed on the website, to allow for this food- a happy inconvenience as it turns out. The menu was on one page, but no veggie option. Never fear, the chef is fantastic.
I had an incredible butternut squash/ frittata/salad with crispy additions and husband had the salmon for starters. For the main course, the chef made truffle risotto. I say that but have never had so much black truffle on a plate in my life. A small dish, but deceptive as very filling. It turns out the Maltese will block book if they know the truffle is on the menu- and no wonder! Incredible. My husband's bream was beautifully presented and he loved it.
We shared the chocolate dessert, which comprised of pure dark chocolate paste ( cannot tell you the technical term) with a sinful chocolate cake with chocolate and rosemary chocolate ice cream. Pure genius on a plate. We were also provided a dry rose wine, on request, which was not on the menu. I wish we had a restaurant like this in London, but if we did, it would be impossible to get a booking.
The lady who served us was brilliant, a sommelier in her own right, the owner popped by as we left, a happy man, and the shy, young, chef who should be neither shy (nor young) to put together a meal like this! Definitely put this restaurant on your list if visiting Malta.
