Description: The Pegasus at the Phoenicia Hotel Malta provides a relaxed atmosphere along with friendly, attentive staff who anticipates your every need. This is the perfect cocktail to ensure the best ending to the day. Open for dinner daily (seasonal closures may apply), our Executive chef Saul Halevi create everything in-house using primarily local produce for an innovative, modern cuisine together with daily fresh fish. Complimenting the menu is the distinctive wine list compiled by our in-house sommelier together with the Pegasus Restaurant's Maitre d'hotel Jean Paul. A private entrance to the restaurant from the main road assures privacy to the most discerning diners.

“Beautiful food , beautifully presented”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We were staying an a B&B basis in the Phoenicia hotel of which the Pegasus Brasserie forms part.
When we were there it was open Wednesday to Sunday . If the word 'Brasserie' was not in the name, we'd consider it an upmarket restaurant, with formal seating, table settings, service etc. Not a huge menu, and a couple of 'specials' ( written on a blackboard, does that make it a Brasserie?!), but enough choice.
And the food was delicious, and beautifully presented. Good wine list too. We were there on a Sunday evening, it was full...it's not very big, do book....service was quite slow ( but charming) , and though it has a formal feel a group of about eight 20 or 30 somethings (maybe locals?) came in to dine quite late, ( they'd booked, the table was ready for them) very casually dressed, and were dealt with just as the rest of us who were dressed for a smart evening out. So quite an eclectic place in the end!
We'd certainly have dined there again, but wanted to try out other places too!

“Fine dining at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

Have just come back from a magnificent dinner at this restaurant. Its a long time since I have experienced the quality of service and food that this restaurant offers. The food reflects the standards that a fine dining restaurant should with an offering of quality food and wine that would hold its place anywhere.

“Something from travel channel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant should really be on one of those celebrity chef programs you see on tv. Its just perfect in every way. The service is just top notch, pampered like royalty.
 
The food...Perfection on a plate. Make sure to try the Angus sirloin, its to die for. They also have a very good variety of fresh fish, live lobsters etc for the seafood lovers.

Desserts. I cant find any suitable word to describe them. Just heavenly. A must have are the crepe suzettes, prepared at the table with professionalism at its highest. We had them from both the male and female waiters and cannot find any difference whatsoever.

Prices are very average. Honestly, for the quality of food and pampering of service, I would say cheap. 

The only thing I would change is the colour scheme.

“Good food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Stayed in the Phoenicia Hotel and gave the Pegasus a try one evening despite there being an abundance of good restaurants in Valletta.We weren't disappointed. Although pricier than the local restaurants, the food was very good, and well presented. The restaurant is modern, and lacks the Art Deco feel of the rest of the hotel, so would be surprised to see non residents dining there, when lots of other choices in the city. Those that do venture there should not be disappointed. The service was very attentive.
