Came in to have a couple of tapas per our Lonely Planet book. The restaurant now only does a set menu, but the owner told us to sit down and he'll bring out a couple of plates. It all ended up being delicious! The tabouleh...More

Hi Yanika, When we were at Legligin, the restaurant did not have an a-la-carte menu. Instead there is a fixed menu, which may or may not change each day, for a fixed price. They do ask every person if there are special... 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.
