In this restaurant the menu was pre-defined and included starters, main dish, dessert and coffee. Everything was very tasty and the ingredients fresh. The service was great! I would recommend to book in advance.

At long last I’ve enjoyed really good food “made in Malta”. After 9 years of searching finally found the place. And aplenty. Very delicious, very good value. You need to make the detour and get out of Spinoza bay.

Tal-Petut is not your typical dining experience. It's a lot more interesting. The young owner, who speaks excellent English and loves what he does, talks with you to select your courses. The courses come family style. Some of the dishes are a surprise. The owner...More

We booked in advance (which is a must),a knowledgeable waiter, as we had not been there before he suggested that we started with the antipasto which was excellent, a really large selection which the waiter described in detail. Then we had ravioli filled with Ricotta...More
