After a fantastic experience last year, we eagerly went back to have a look. Sadly the menu appeared uninspiring and decidedly average. I am not paying those prices for average when I can get average up the street for less. I will let the new...More

Went for a birthday dinner in March 18, believing it still to be the same quality of restaurant that we had enjoyed and had rated very highly all round. Menu has degenerated into the standard general ‘Mediterranean’ style, not very well executed, prices too high...More

Tasting good food in Malta is more than difficult, is next to impossible. We almost gave up when we glanced at the elegant entrance of IC-Civil and liked it. It might seem like an extremily posh and pretentious place but nothing is further from the...More

There are very few "good" if even acceptable eateries In Valletta - overall it was very disapointing. Michael's however was very good. Nice location, nice ambiance and good food. They were attentive to me as a solo diner and I would very much recommend it.

Michael's is a fine dining restaurant in Valletta. Very good service, tasty dishes, unique seating area. It is actually a club. Difficult to notice from outside.

We just asked the concierge at the hotel to make the reservation for us. So it works by telephone. I'm not sure if there is another way. Peter R

If I remember correctly, I think I went to their website and filled out the form listed there for reservations. They emailed me back.
