We visited Legligin last night for dinner. It's a lovely little small restaurant, with sweet mismatching wooden tables next to one another. The guy who greeted us, leading us to our table was incredibly helpful and friendly. The only main food they serve at the moment is a 6/7 course tasting menu, which was absolutely brilliant. Each course had the... More

We had some great meals in Malta but this was definitely the best. The tasting menu was a mix of Maltese and Mediterranean dishes, including rabbit, mussels, tabouleh and quail. Every dish was lovely and we had a good mix of things to try. My boyfriend is lactose intolerant and they were happy to alter the menu to be dairy... More

We were given a number of small dishes all of which were good. I think the concept is a perfect way to sample great Maltese food as if your grandmother made it. I was invited so didn't know how much they paid, however the set price idea displayed on the board seems like it was well worth it. Next time... More

If you're after a fine-dining experience with a 'wow' factor, this restaurant isn't it. Although the restaurant offers a 'tasting menu', the style of the food is home-cooked Mediterranean/Maltese. On the evening of our visit, we had: For starters: *cauliflower soup, *some tapas and cheese Fish course (very tasty but portions were quite small): *fresh fillets of sea bream, *octopus... More

This extraordinary little place is incredible value for money. Order the 26-Euro tasting menu and you will sample course after course of delicious Maltese dishes. It is a great way to get familiar with Maltese cooking. You will not go away hungry. The restaurant is small (booking essential) and very atmospheric. Happy, helpful staff too. One our best eating experiences... More

Legligin is set in the basement so a very atmospheric old building, and the staff were all lovely, very attentive and helped each other out to ensure they translated the menu and any questions we had accurately. All diners have the 7/8 course tasting menu of whatever the chef is cooking that night, and every single dish was amazing! The... More

The quaint wine bar in Strada Sta Lucia in Valletta where the good flowing wine is exalted by Chris' unique culinary delights. Legligin is a concept restaurant and wine bar. Our €26 per person tasting menu includes Maltese and other Mediterranean dishes. There is no a la carte menu... Just sit back, relax, and let us feed you, the Legligin way. Open every day from 1 pm till late.
