I had tried Colin's La Sorpresa with my family and promised myself I will suggest it to my Old Boys Association. I did and was not let down. We were given a choice of 5 first and second course, 3 deserts, coffee, wine and water. Not forgetting the pre meal 'bigilla' and water biscuits - all, for a very, very moderate price. When the day came, out of the pre ordered 55 covers, we did not have one complaint (except that the portions were ENORMOUS...too much at our age, but definately, value for money for my friends and I , who had experienced all sorts of restaurants - world wide.

My partner wanted to try Kangaroo, which we had seen advertised at La Sorpresa. When the meal arrived I wondered if they hadn't put half the kangaroo on his plate!! There was loads!! I had pasta which tasted divine. The whole meal was delicious, the staff were very polite and friendly. One of the nicest meals I have had on the Island. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone

Caught them near the end of lunch service but the staff happily squeezed me in. The waitress and owner couldn't have been nicer.
Had a lovely half bottle of Merlot and a rabbit portioned off and served in a traditional Maltese style. All very tasty but way too much of it. A little portion control matched with the staffs charm and they could have something excellent.

Excellent set menu , quality ingredients in very substantial dishes . Pleasant surroundings and a friendly service .. Nothing is too much bother . Could not understand why this restaurant was not at all busy on both occasions we visited

Our bill was £29.50 for two including wine , set menu . and less than 20£ for two the second time . for two main dishes .
Any future visit to Malta will include La Sorpresa ....some surprise .. for sure !!!
