I love the attention the restaurants gives to its dossiers and guests. Every dish is elaborated with care making it very difficult to choose a favourite

Exquisite food. Second time that we’ve been. Recommend the ravioli, tortellini as starters, for mains wild boar lasagna, sea bass, veal. For desert baked Alaska, apple strudel and pancake with toffee etc. Very pleasant restaurant and staff efficient. Regular flow of food. Good place for fine dining.

We had the duck risotto and spaghetti vongoli with spianata for starters which were both delicious.
The Meagre in a broth with seafood was very nice.
Service was good and attentive.
All in all a good lunch.

Really great experience and even though it isn’t the cheapest place on the island, I would recommend this.

For a foreigner living on Malta I got this “New York-hells kitchen” when I entered the place. Small but not uncomfortable crowded. Dark but rather warm colors.

The food very well prepared and served and their trademark Wellington steak ...wow!

For starters we can recommend the risotto and the fois gras.

Service in general good, but for a 10/10 I would like just a bit more friendly and smiling waiters.

But forget them. Enjoy the food and the 200 euro bill for 2 including a good wine and few drinks, is definitely worth it.

We had dinner last night at 59 Republic for the first time and our expectations were exceeded. The owners have got just about everything right; the decoration is stylish but restrained - its all about the food. I started with a delicious vol-au-vent with a creamy shrimp filling, it was sublime, the shrimp were fresh local beauties that were cooked to perfection, overcooking seafood is a common mistake. My main course was delicious but not exceptional, a seafood dish made with a quality local fish - a black meagre. My husband also had the seafood stew following his starter of spaghetti vongole and chorizo. The main course was also topped with vongole and we felt the waiter should have pointed this out when we ordered. Perhaps the menu descriptions could be improved?
The chairs and the bench seating are superbly comfortable, the noise levels moderate and the wine of high quality, as were the deserts. All 59 needs to obtain perfections is for the front-of-house staff to gain experience and have further training although they were generally efficient and polite.
We will certainly be returning to this new star in the heart of a vibrant city that is awakening from a long slumber.
