Where to begin? Staff is really happy and welcoming. Really professional, and the food (Duck breast) is to die for. Never tasted so good food in my life, and with the fruity wine made it excellent. I MUST visit this place again.

“Dining turned into art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

We dined here last Wednesday. Everything was perfect, from the aubergine dip, to the mains, the tasty baked potatoes, the service, ambience and price. It was simply a pleasure all the way through.

“Excellent does not make justice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014

We found this place on tripadvisor and we did not get disappointed at all. The location is great and the place itself looks beautiful. The owner is very friendly and always come to your table making sure everything is ok, at the end he also introduced us his wife which is the chef. The wait staff also are very attentive. The food is absolutely great. We were in 7 and had appetizers and beef fillet, with 2 bottles of wine (4 of water), desserts, coffees and limoncello for everybody at the price of 40€ per person. Absolutely brilliant. If I ever come back to Malta this will be the first place on my list.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

A little restaurant tucked away on Strait Street, Palazzo Preca is worth visiting for a good meal. The atmosphere is charming, and the staff very attentive. I had seafood pasta and my partner had lamb, and we were both pleased.

“Fine fish dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

We followed the recommendations for this restaurant and arrived without reservation. A table for two was no problem and the service was prompt, friendly and efficient. In no time we had a basket of bread, the menus, a drink and an explanation of the fish menu. No complaints here, except that the beer was not quite cold and a little flat. We both had starters and the portions were generous and delicious. We also both chose fish although done differently. Mine, packed in rock salt and flamed, was presented to me at the table like that before serving. It tasted as good as it looked. My partner's fish was just as scrumptious. Certainly a restaurant to visit when in Valetta
