Description: The Diningroom is a relaxed & casual place to eat & drink. As a menu The Diningroom emphasises on what is local, what is Mediterranean; focusing as much as possible on local ingredients and local produce, with a fusion of international cuisine. The menu is unpretentious yet delicious and ranges from traditional to contemporary gastronomy, whilst the Special Menu is majorly crafted from fresh, seasonal ingredients. However what makes the Diningroom stand out is our innovative concept of “Chef’s Dinners”. This includes the creation of a bespoke menu to suit your needs. Patrons are encouraged to get in touch a couple of days before to discuss expectations, ingredients and budget and then leave the rest in the Chef’s capable hands. The combination of our culinary expertise along with your personal recommendations can only spell out an evening to remember!

“Pretty good!”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We had never heard of this place, but since it was on the Gusto we decided to check it out and we were pleasantly surprised. Mark, the host, was polite and helpful. The food was delicious: we had a pasta dish and risotto for starters and pot au feu and lamb rack for mains. The lamb was slightly overcooked for my liking but still very good. The dessert was fantastic.

My only complaint would be about the wine list which was a bit limited. We ended up drinking local wine (which they do have quite a broad selection of).

We'll definitely go again.

“Great Service and fantastic food!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

A hidden gem amongst the beach/seaside cafes/restaurants found near Ghadira Bay, Mellieha. We had a lovely quiet evening with delicious food and good wine. Mark is a great host and was also helpful in choosing the gluten free options for myself. The portions are generous so try leave some space for one of their yummy desserts! It definitely deserves another visit! Well done and keep it up!

“Very pleasant experience”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is a new restaurant that deserves a lot more patrons than we encountered when we visited.

The choice on the menu is reasonable and well laid-out. The host was very courteous and when he was informed that one of us had a food intolerance, he immediately sought to recommend the dishes more suited to that diet. Nevertheless, another waitress who also served us and took our orders was not knowledgeable about the items on the menu.

We had the Fillet Pot Au Feu which was melt-in-your-mouth tender and very tasty. The home made french fries where a nice touch, but they were soaking in oil. The dessert - carrot cake with vanilla ice cream - was also very good.

All in all, we were impressed and will surely return.

“Great food and attentive service”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

We celebrated an anniversay at The Dinningroom which had been recommended by a work colleague. We made our booking and asked for a vegan menu with 3 courses. Our meal was excellent and the service was very attentive, Mark is a great host and we would recommend the Dinningroom for celebrating special occasions as our experience was that Mark listens and understands what is required and then delivers! What we paid was good value also, which is an added bonus.

Anniversary dinner with my girlfriend. Nice, sleek and modern decor, impeccable service, very good food that was well presented.

A very big well done and a thankyou to that gentleman who was serving us. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and have no difficulty to recommend.

Thanks and keep it up!!
