Don't be put off by your first look inside Rubino's. It's homely slightly rundown appearance only adds to the culinary sensation you are about to enjoy. Fabulous friendly service and a menu that had so many dishes I fancied that it was hard to choose. There were 12 of us and everyones dish was gorgeous. Highly recommended.

Re-visited Rubino for a birthday party. We were a group of 12 people and we were provided with a lovely private room. The staff service was impeccable in spite of us being a large number with different demands - our server (who unfortunately did not manage to get his name) was very attentive to our needs and the food was...

One of the few restaurants open on Sunday. Service was a little slow with an anxious staff. Worth a try.

Smart but relaxed Valletta favourite, The blackboard menu of excellent traditional Maltese and Mediterranean food changes daily. There is always a mix of meat and fish dishes, and usually a rabbit dish much loved by locals

We ate at Rubinos some year's ago and loved it. We went back again this year and were disappointed. The previous hostesses were excellent, but this time we were looked after by an over officious man, who had three staff who just danced around his orchestration. We had a meze for starters, which was nice and enjoyable. My pork fillets... More

Off the beaten path, Rubino has the old fashion charm with excellent service and food. From the Gozitan asparagus to the braised lamb and grilled pork with lemon and thyme we couldn't be more happier with the choices. And yes they are known for the cassata Siciliana and what a way to end a lovely lunch. We will be visiting... More

Really liked this place, the best restaurant I visited during my short stay in Valletta. Interesting menu with lots of local dishes, changing daily. Very friendly service. Recommended.
