They serve delicious Maltese food and have great service, they're welcoming and their staff are very kind. We went twice during our stay in Malta and we will definitely be going back!

We were tempted to try this restaurant by the positive reviews here but it turned out to be a disappointing evening. Mediocre food including over salty mussels and fried rabbit, and rubbery duck. Choice of desserts limited to ice cream. Slow service. Plenty of better...More

Excellent service. Contrary to some reviews - it was also very fast, although the place was full. Ambience is more bohemian, in line with the name. The food was very tasty: octopus with chorizo and king prawns.

Having said this, it was the only night we did not have any fish! The Duck Ricotta Tortellini was excellent and Rabbit L’Artist good. Food servings quite large and general ambience, music and service very good too. Thank you Malta for a great holiday!

Visiting L'Artist each time I'm in Malta, often without reservation or calling last moment as it's just few meters from the office. Usually it is possible to get a table during the week. My fav is fresh fish (not eating rabbit) and was never disappointed,...More
