We stumbled across this restaurant on our first night in Valetta and were very glad we did. It served excellent food, the atmosphere and service were both good and the building had character with a glass floor for viewing the wine cellar.

It is hidden away in Strait Street off the main thoroughfare but well worth a detour. Not the cheapest but good value for the quality of the food.

We are planning a second visit before we leave!

We probably wouldn't normally go to such a premium Restaurant, however as we were invited on business it was rude not to. Palazzo Preca throughly lived up to expectations. Outstanding service, amazing food all within the settings of a restored 15th century Maltese Villa, ( Including glass floor from which the substantial wine cellar could be viewed lead to a memorable experience.

We ate here twice during our stay in Malta. On both occasions the food and service were excellent. All the staff were friendly and attentive and happy to give advice on the menu and wines. I would not hesitate to recommend it and we will certainly eat here again if we return to Malta. Definitely not to be missed.

We dined here as a group of 10 and had the most amazing meal with fabulous, attentive and professional service! The menu had an excellent range to suit all tastes - I had trouble deciding what to have! The rabbit was divine but whatever you do save room for the creme brûlée - best I've ever had!
