Palazzo Preca accommodated us even without reservation. The owner and staff were friendly and warm. The service was fantastic. The food was amazing. Fine dining hence expect a bit pricy but it is worth it.

This seemed to be the kind of place you'd take an older relative who was sophisticated but with perhaps conservative tastes. It looks like nothing from the narrow street, but the inside has high ceilings and big spaces.The local fish (lampuki) was in season, and...More

Hubby took me to Palazzo Preca for our anniversary dinner, as a surprise. All was wonderful really, food, waiterservice and venue. Place was quite packed though we came on a Wednesday, so booking is definitely recommended.

Good welcome, nice table following a booking by phone. As a starter we shared a mix plate of shells : tastefull, perfect flavour, well cooked. Maybe a bit small for the price. Main course: frutti di mare: generous, tasty. I do recommand this place.

We found most of the food below par. The tuna aubergine starter had so many flavours going on you could barely taste the tuna for all the tomatoe and herbs. The prawn and rice main had so much pepper on the rice it was unpleasant...More

Wonderful food, service and interior. No more expensive than most average restaurants in middle of Valletta which capture tourists. Do your research and you can experience fine dining for the same price. Absolutely super. (we also went to other family restaurant king's own band club)...More

Yes it is good value. It's not exceptionally high in prices. It is what many other restaurants in Valletta charge. The difference is that unlike some the food is cooked with care. So it works out that it's reasonably priced... More
