Lovely decor, warm and inviting makes feel like home. Food is great, complimentary bruschetta and a good mix of local dishes means there's something for any pallet. My Bragoli was amazing as was the mushroom with cream sauce, loved the prickly pear shot after dinner...More

I was thinking of writing a good review while having my main course, a tasty rabbit stew because it was a nice, clam, cozy dinner. All went well: The restaurant looks good, furbished old pub style. Lots of wines on wooden shelves give it an...More

We happened upon this place by accident and although they were super busy, they managed to fit us in. We ordered a caprese to share to start but prior to that we were brought a sharing platter of bruschetta, cheese and dip - all lovely....More

We visited here as it looks really appealing and had read reviews. Yes food was tasty and good. For us the customer service let it down. On arrival staff really friendly and accommodating. Once we had ordered and delivered there was no interaction. No goodbye...More

This place was perfect on a chilly winter's night. I found the bruschetta followed by shellfish delicious as was the Maltese wine. Portions were large and tasty. Recommended.

Little restaurant with a variety of food, local and more common. There was one friendly waiter and one mildly friendly that was more occupied with something else than the guests. The music was a little too loud so it was disturbing instead of a background....More

We very much enjoyed the food in Maltese Mama. The restaurant has a cosy feel and the owner is a calm, gentle man who obviously has a passion for the food and wine he is serving. We asked him to recommend a local white wine...More

This gem of a restaurant is in a busy area, surrounded by cheap bars so we were pleasantly surprised to discover it. It serves a range of different meals including several traditional Maltese dishes that are sometimes hard to find in the bigger towns on...More

Went with two friends. I order bragioli, which was very tasty, delicious. We ordered a Maltese Island Syrah Merlot 2016, which was good and cheap (to US standards). Dinner with wine, desert and coffee... for 3 people, came up to less than $100.!

Questions & Answers
Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
