Beautifully decorated restaurant with excellent food and wine. Not too expensive, fast, flexible staff and the food was just to die for, offering a good range of interesting dishes. Although the restaurant was full and we hadn't booked a table, the staff was quick to accommodate us with a make-shift table for 4. The atmosphere is elegant but not pompous.... More

It is on the very narrow Strait Street, once the main center of prostitution in Valletta, but now with high quality venues. My wife and I wandered in for a late lunch. It has a curious,semi-faded elegance, long run by a pair of sisters, one of whom has now started her own restaurant. There are nice paintings on the wall.... More

We had booked from Ireland before going out as having been to Palazzo Preca before we didn't want to miss out. It was as good as we remembered - Warm rolls and an Amuse Bouche set us off, fantastic Calamari, Fritto Misto to die for, except I couldn't finish it! Lamb Shank falling off the bone. Complementary Lemonchello to round... More

We stumbled across this delightful restaurant in Valetta. The staff were both friendly and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. With hot bread and arancini as complimentary extras and smooth wines to supplement the meal. The food was delicious and well prepared with an excellent choice of main courses and a sumptuous caramel/hazelnut tart as dessert. Thoroughly recommended!😊

My wife and I were strolling the narrow streets of the city and found Palazzo Preca. It looked great but since it was a Saturday night we were not sure the management could find a place for us. They did!! Staff was super nice, friendly and attentive. Great choice of food. We split a mushroom entree and I enjoyed as... More

Wow! What a place Food was sublime and the service was impeccable . If you want fine dinning in Malta then you have to try this place . As with most places on Malta the pricing is extremely reasonable . I proposed to my boyfriend of 20yrs here and couldn't have chosen a more romantic setting . Lots of lovely... More
