we have visited the Maltese Mama previously and decided to return this year. We decided not to have a starter which was a good choice as the bread is lovely and we were given a plate of Maltese tasters which help stave the hunger before...More

I went with friends and had a great time! The service was impeccable! The wine was very great, we ordered Maltese Red Merlot. The food was amazing. They gave us the most amazing brushetta bread that I've ever had, free of charge as an appetizer....More

We didn't need to book, it was about 8p.m. On a Monday evening. We weren't given menus straightaway which was the only downside but the feel of the place was warm and we felt we could ask anything and were given answers honestly. I had...More

Visited Maltese Mama on a Saturday evening without a reservation and the staff were extremely accommodating and found us a table. The service and food could not be faulted and was excellent. . Will definitely return on our next visit

We visited this restaurant by accident as the place we were heading for, that had been recommended, was full. We walked in on the 'off chance' we could get a table and we were greeted at Maltese Mama by a wonderful guy named Mark, who...More

Wanted to try local food, so choose both for the rabbit but prepared in a different way The rabbit was not tender and dry and besides the sauce, the meat tasted the same and was without flavour. A rather dipappointing experience.

Just got back from dinner and have to say that this was one of the best main courses that I have ever had. Seriously! I had the garlic mushrooms (7/10) followed by the pork fillet with pears & honey (10/10 - the sauce is fantastic);...More

I visited this cosy restaurant twice. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Both times I was given a complimentary antipasto consisting of some Maltese sausage and cheese, crackers, olives, thick bean paste and cheese on toast.

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
