Description: Mediterranean and Maltese cuisine, restaurant located right on the sea edge, with an amazing view over Mellieha Bay, the most beautiful sunset ever you can see ! Built on the old Tunny Net restaurant, established in the early 50's of the past century! We are specialized in local and Mediterranean dishes and daily fresh fish and meat specialties.

We spent a week in Malta in the Luna apartments near La Barca and ate there twice. On the first visit we were given a lovely table outside overlooking the sea and the woman serving us was very friendly. We had the lobster and chicken dish, and a clam and pasta dish, which were both very tasty. We also went for lemon and pineapple ice cream which came inside the fruit which we loved!

We decided to try a new restaurant each night of our holiday. We would return to our favourite on our last night. La Barca was our winning restaurant! Again the meals were delicious and the service was really good. We think the price of the food was very reasonable for the quality.

Street level on one side but walk on though the restaurant and you'll be sat on a lovely verandah overlooking the sea. The menu had lot's of local dishes... tastiest was the Quail with Honey grape and walnut sauce...Maltese equivalent to sticky ribs I'd say, the sauce was sooo tasty I'd love them to bottle it. And that's just a starter. Follwed by traditional Spaghetti in rabbit sauce....OK not too hot for Vegetarians out there I know but absolutely delicious.
If we'd had time we'd have gone back again, well worth a visit if you,re in the area

We stumbled across La Barca on our first night in Melleiha and what a find! The starter of quail in a honey, grape and walnut sauce was delicious and highly recommended, our table was on an a balcony and afforded beautiful views across the bay, full of little boats and moonlight dancing across the water, in fact the view was only matched by the food and warm welcome we received at La Barca.
