We tried this restaurant as had read good reviews and although the food was OK, we waited 20 minutes before we were asked what we wanted to drink and it was another hour before we actually had our food. Wouldn't have minded if they were very busy but there were only eight of us in the restaurant! Got the impression one guy serving and waiting at table so maybe they had a staff problem and we were just unlucky. Food nice but probably best avoided if you are very hungry or not prepared for a very leisurely meal.

well title says it all , we have been to malta 3 times and visited this restaurant many times and in our 15 stay went here 3 times and would gone more but without doubt will be going again next visit
the restaurant looks superb from the lovely white cotton tablecloths to the glasses and napkins , to the decor inside to the bar , no faultys at all
by way malet is what malta used to be known as and has brief interesting history inside the menu , which offers all sorts of meals from past , ravioli , maltese dishes and more ,
the wonderful attentative waitor is a joy to watch and talk to , his wife does the cooking and daughter helps out sometimes
on our 3 visits we both tried the ravioli which neither of us finished , i left 1 piece but both really enjoyed it , then we had one my great favourites " bragioli " which i thoroughly recommend , and again lived up to my expectations , simply wonderful in a wonderful sauce , vegetables and it served with small roast potatoes , courgettes and carrots , then my partner ate a very nice plate of horse medallions whilst i tucked into quails , again served with vegtables and potatoes , every meal was wonderfully enjoyed ,
before main course is delivered you get a free small sample of wonderful soups and maltese crusty bread
but if they sold shares in this place i would buy loads as simply outstanding , my advice if you in buggiba visit here , you will love it and it very close to bugibba square and same price as the run down places there
it also has a private room for special occasions , we never tried this but whole restaurant looks great
so a last big thank you to you both for another 3 lovely evenings at the " malet "

used trip advisor to find a good reaturant and as this was highly rated went here. we were seated straight away and after a few minutes placed or order of wine and food- great. however the next couple that came in had to wait 10minutes to be seated even though the restaurant was quiet. we had the complementary cauliflower soup was delicious. rating the food is difficult as me and my boyfriend both had the same- bruschetta and then the pork scallopes. He thought it was lovely but to me the bruschetta was a little too oily and soft. and my pork was quite greasy. Doesnt mean its bad but I'm not a fan of grease. He then took our plates away and us and the couple on the table next to us had to wait 55minutes for the server to return to ask if we wanted dessert or coffee. we all just paid and left. disapointed.
