Description: The quaint wine bar in Strada Sta Lucia in Valletta where the good flowing wine is exalted by Chris' unique culinary delights. Legligin is a concept restaurant and wine bar. Our €26 per person tasting menu includes Maltese and other Mediterranean dishes. There is no a la carte menu... Just sit back, relax, and let us feed you, the Legligin way.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The homemade wine is delicious! The food is perfect and we were so happy with the desserts that we have decided to go back there the next day!

You can eat enough with the "little menu" but the tapas are so good that we can advice to try the large one.

Truly great!

“Excellent!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Truly a great experience. Excellent food, great ambience and very well priced. Went with friends and had the € 15.00 meze / tapas menu which was supposed to be just a taster however turned out to be just perfect. We all ate plenty and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

“One of a kind”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Valletta's night life is beginning to wake up mainly due to the proliferation of quaint eateries like Legligin. The decor and environment is simple, after all its a basement, but the atmosphere is unique.

A simple concept though effective. Delicious tapas and mezes, tasty maltese bread downed by a variety of reasonably priced wines.

This is not a place for the hearty eater as a previous commentator has mentioned, though the food is genuine.

“best way to join valetta: best food, best wine, best atmosphere in town!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

know valetta for such a long time! 13 years ago you couldn't even have some drinks with small food after 7 o'clock. city was nearly dead after ten! and how amazing... some years later, valetta starts to awake from the big sleep. you can find some lovely places but LEGLIGIN is my favourite! every time I come to visit malta i share unforgettable hours in this bar with friends. it's comparing to cities like barcelone, lisbon, paris or rome!!! I love this bar... conny from berlin

“Wonderful tapas dishes and loads of atmosphere”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We chanced upon this incredible cave of a restaurant by accident. We were looking for something special and we found it in Valetta at Legligin. Atmosphere in spades and wonderful chef/host in Chris who made our meal and our whole lunch a memorable experience. He was even able to cope with gluten free! The chicken is divine as was everything on the tasting plates. We had a great local Medina rose wine and finished with Chris' home made cherry wine and limoncello to have with dessert. Worth a trip to Malta just to visit this great establishment. Foodies will love it. David and Ki from Australia
