Four of us went to Maltese Mama last night and it was by far the best restaurant we went to on our 4 day weekend break. In other restaurants we had great food but in Maltese Mama we not only had superb food but it was equalled by fantastic service which rivalled all the other venues we visited. Malta in general seems very laid back in the service department but the staff at Maltese Mama were very attentive and efficient. It resulted in a fantastic evening of good food, drink, service and company. Couldn't fault it!

The service was great, the food excellent.
We had rockfish with risotto, patatoes, warm and fresh vegetables. The wine was excellent.
Really, we were surprised after the horrible restaurants we already visited in Malta.
Go and see for yourselves!

Very authentic in style, visited due to other TA reviews.

Extremely disappointed. Starters ok, though not the hardest of choices to get wrong (salad and fish cakes).

Opted for "fish special" John Dory which my wife and I had to share. It was overcooked and dry, totally inedible. Saute potatoes were oily and pretty unappetizing too. Salad was , well, a salad.

Wouldnt return.
Wouldn't recommend.

Dear Stuart52

I would like to apologise again for the inconvinience and I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your dinner with us.

However You cannot ignore the fact that when you first complained about your overcooked fish, The waiter wanted to take your food and asked you whether you would like to order something else from the menu or choose another fish from our selection but you insisted not to, altough you did not like your fish.

Our first priority is to keep our clients well satisfied and happy.To show our sympathy we did not charge you for your fish and we gave you a complimentary drink as well! If you wanted something else you could have easily asked for it.

Kind regards
Maltese Mama
