We went here during our trip through Malta. In contrast to the many „tourist-traps“ in Sliema, this restaurant stood out and was also full of locals. We had some Mezze, which tasted great.

Alibaba serves excellent food including Mezze which offers an amazing variety of Lebanese dishes almost too many to choose and a recommendation, the chicken livers are superb. The service is efficient, unobtrusive but always attentive. Only one criticism, my wife and I ordered a brandy...More
