“A wonderful small restaurant”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

A nice little restaurant with few tables. The food is very good, and the dessert (lemon panna cotta) was so good that it felt like being in heaven. We had dinner there two times I had crispy sesam chicken strip salat both times. My husband had a steak the first time and swordfish the second time. He had white chocolate brownie both times for a dessert, which was also very good. Everything tasted so good. Both times we had a surprise taste from the kitchen before we had our meal. The second time it was a pumpkin soup, I could not believe how they were able to make such a good tasting pumpkin soup. The service is great and it is nice and quiet to sit there, with perfect dinner music. We really enjoyed eating at this restaurant.

“Fantastic food, great prices lovely service.”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We stumbled upon Capistrano when looking for somewhere that could cater for my wife's vegetarian diet, as well as having a nice fish and meat selection for me. The menu was well rounded and fantastically priced.
We were served by a lovely waiter, he was very helpful and welcoming.
The meals were both fantastic, both starters and mains were well presented and beautifully cooked.
We will visit again before we leave.

“Good food”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We ate at Capistrano on Saturday and it was very good. I had some sort of stuffed rabbit with sausage (first time ever that I ate rabbit) and it was better than expected. Staff was friendly and prices were fine.

“uneven”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

The atmosphere and service were very good. The food was disappointing. Swordfish was overcooked, most dishes not seasoned, bread was tasteless. The food does not live up to the fine dining prices and ambience.

“OK”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We visited on a Sunday as it is one of the few restaurants open in Valletta and it had received good reviews. The staff are very friendly but considering the price not nearly as good as gauze bistro just up the road eg empty bread basket side plates and beer glasses left on the table throughout the meal. The food was moderate although it has to be said my friends pork din was excellent. The pasta dish was stodgy and not great. Do try the Maltese sparkling rose which was good. It is worth going yo but don't expect the dining experience of your life. Would we go again? Only if we couldn't get into gauze or Robinos
