Fabulous meal - the food was superb. Service, décor and ambience all top quality. Although it was our first visit to the restaurant, one was made to feel like a very welcome guest and the price for such a experience was remarkably good.

My husband and I really enjoyed two excellent meals here. The food and service is always exceptional. Do visit on a Wednesday when the restaurant/palace is lit by candlelight. It's truly magical and romantic. Do book as the restaurant gets very busy. Thank you.

Everything was excellent. We had a Very nice evening at palazzo preca. The service was top notch. Very nice menu which is well priced. We had fantastic seafood starters which were well portioned.

We had dinner here, the food was excellent, the staff were needing to turn people away while we were there. There was a bit of delay waiting for food, but it was well worth the wait. Super place I recommend booking to be sure of getting in!

When visiting Valletta we decided to have dinner in this place. The restaurant is located downtown Valletta in a small alley. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was nice to have a demonstration of the fresh fish they could offer. We ordered the tuna and the salmon which, together with the side dishes, in one word were perfect.... More

We found this restaurant on the off dance and only saw the other reviews later. Generally I whole heartedly agree. The food was excellent (try the rabbit), room elegant, the service very good and the atmosphere very convivial. Not cheap by the standard of some places in Malta, but by UK standards a steal.
