We were concerned with the 'all things to all men' aspect of the menu of this restaurant but we had an outstanding experience.

Looking for north african food in Malta is surprisingly difficult so we took the trip into old town Valletta for La Mere. We had lamb koftas and a tagine which was simply excellent in a huge terracotta dish, served with bones, spices, cloves and all for a fantastic full flavour and lean meat which just melted at the touch.

This place also has a very reasonable BYOB policy in place so if you are considering having an expensive bottle of wine this would be a good place to do it.

Highly reccomended.

Food here was excellent - top quality Indian cuisine. Be sure to book before you go as it is very small inside but definitely worth a visit!

My wife and I have been to this restaurant on a few occasions, during the winter months we dine inside, in summer there are a few tables outside..the menu is varied and focuses on Indian, North African and Maltese dishes so there is something which will appeal to everyone. Very reasonably priced and very good service.

La Mere restaurant is worthy to try when you are in Valletta. Nice food, especially the Halloum and Falafel salad, one of the best! I chose the Moroccan Tajine which was really delicious. The place offers outside tables which offers nice dining experience. Staff also was friendly and helpful. Recommended for sure.

An interesting though maybe a bit odd range of options. But the concept seems to work and the menu seems manageable and well presented. Really expands the food choices in central Valletta. Service was very welcoming, friendly and professional.

We went for curry options which were delicious and freshly prepared.

The only criticism would be that prices were a bit high; so loses a few points on value for money. But still recommended.
