We ate twice in the Pegasus during our stay and both times were excellent!! The staff are friendly and attentive and cater to your every need!! The fillet of Angus beef is best I have ever tasted!! I would recommend it to anyone that visits Malta, well worth the visit!!

“Refreshing Oasis in the midst of a city”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Recently visited this bustling Brasserie - Restaurant, within the ambience of The Phoenicia Hotel.
I have been an infrequent visitor, but every time it excels and improves....well done.
The expertise of Jean Paul, who has every care in mind of his clients coupled with a well presented menu to suit all tastes, just leaves the clients almost overwhelmed after their meal. Back to basics...nothing too much trouble, every attention to detail and good old fashioned service... a wow each time and to be well and truly recommended. Visitors seek this oasis out you will not be disappointed !!

“Lovely evening”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

John-Paul is extremely experienced and a welcoming host. The classic, modern and elegant furnishings of the interior, located on the side of The Pheonicia Hotel give it the feel for a special occasion and the atmosphere does not disappoint for the occasion. The food is more ambitious and of fine dining as opposed to the classic dishes served in the hotels main restaurant. We had a lovely, unhurried evening with fabulous food served attractivelt and with style. Would definitely return.

many thanks for your kind review on TA. It is a pleasure to see that you enjoyed your evening with us and it motivates us to continue on the same lines we are pursuing and to strive for improvement.

It is also pleasant to read about your comparison of our two in-house restaurants, in fact this is exactly how to try to differentiate them in terms of concept and perception to the public and our clientele.

Your kind words have been shared with both John Paul, the Culinary & the Service Team and I am sure it will be a pleasure for them to read as soon as we post it on our notice board.
