We are the Malta area every 5 to 6 weeks and always make a point of eating at the Ripe tomato. The menu has something for everyone's palate from young to old to easy to please to gormet tastes. There are standard items accompanied by new dishes from various parts of the world. The food is always tasty and fresh. The staff makes you feel special and work hard to make you dining experience a treat. You can actually have a conversation with others at the table without shouting. If your in the area it will be worth the effort to stop and have a wonderful dining experience.
