My wife and I ate here unexpectedly as sfoglia is open after 1400. We didn't have terribly high hopes but were blown away by the quality of the food. Definitely somewhere worth putting on the Valetta to-do list.

Just came home from an outstanding dinner. I don't know how many times i have eaten here. La sfoglia valletta is one of the best in Malta for sure! We started with linguine sea urchens and seafood for starters, which were to die for! followed by 2 dentex.. EXCELLENT!! The fish is very fresh and they have a vast fish selection in the fish display. Afterwords we took caramel bomb and a home made white chocolate cheese cake and they were a perfect conclusion to our meal. As always a nice bottle of wine, which in this case i took a greco di tufo. ( one of my favourites ) and i finished the meal as usual with a coffe and an amaro.

We ended up in this restaurant because the two restaurants we really wanted to go to in Valletta did not accept children! At La Sfoglia, this was not a problem. They immediately got a high chair out and we sat on the terrace and didn't feel like we were bothering anyone with our child. So we had chosen this restaurant by default, but it turned out to be a very nice surprise. My linguine vongole (linguine with clams) was perfect. We ordered three pasta dishes and they were all delicious and perfectly cooked. The wine was very good too and they let us take the rest of the bottle with us as we didn't finish it all at the restaurant. Service was rapid and friendly. We also noticed that for those who wanted the fresh fish, the chef came out to show the fish to the table. I would definitely recommend this place - inexpensive and delicious.

probably the least agreeble restaurant we tried, service indifferent, food OK-nothing special, wine ridiculously expensive when buying by glass (E5) outside tables are nice, but kitchen is some way from tables.......little choice, fish or a few local dishes - unbalanced meal, no salad, no veg.
4/10 by my rating.

Did not expect that ordering fresh fish not from a fishing village would be more expensive, I ordered small fish did not have thought it would cost 27eur n would be charged individually for every king prawn and langustini 5 eur each sorry never again
