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.

Fantastic service and a good food experience. Lovely ambience. The best steak we have ever had and quality starters, sides and wine followed by amazing crepe deserts. We would definitely recommend.

“Excellent food, outstanding service”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

It is clear that service is the first priority here and everything is taken care of with nothing too much trouble or overlooked. A really interesting menu that mixes traditional with new (Tuna with strawberries and apple with prawns - sounds wrong, but so good). For an intimate meal or something special on holiday this is perfect.

“Nothing short of perfection”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

From the squid ink bread to the perfectly prepared calamari (so rare to find a restaurant that can get it just right) dining at The Pegasus is such a lovely experience. Mr Vella is attentive and professional and a real pleasure. Definitely on my list of favs!

“expensive.”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Ambience and decor - nice although would expect better in a restaurant situated in a prestigious hotel.

The person in charge is cordial and very efficient. Does his best to please the client.

Food - good.

Service - slow considering that only a few tables were occupied. However manager and waitress are good.

Prices - expensive.

Menu - too much emphasis on fish in antipasti, primi and main. Dessert selection is very good.

“Good dining in the Phoenicia Hotel”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We dined three times at the in-house Pegasus during our stay at the Phoenicia Hotel, preferring it to their just-OK Phoenix Restaurant. Whilst the decor is bland for what is billed as a "fine dining" experience, the cuisine was very good. The fresh fish offered was perfectly cooked, and the memorable Crêpes Suzette prepared at the table, on one night by head waiter John and on another by his deputy, were frankly better than we had had at the Tour d"Argent in Paris! Service was helpful and prompt, though the place was not crowded. We can recommend Pegasus for enjoyable dining at a fair price. (Closed Mondays)
