Simply the best authentic Maltese food in Valletta. Great value for money, and great service and recommendations provided by Makllet. The pork belly is to die for.

Wonderful food in a very nice setup with wonderful staff. The Ftira as starter was divine, the Rabbit Ravioli to die for and the Strawberry ravioli as dessert rounded off the meal with class

I’ve given this restaurant an average rating because although the food was very good, the service was absolutely appalling.

Nenu The Artisan Baker is a meeting place for young and old, locals and foreigners, frequent patrons as well as those desirous of a taste of local authentic cuisine served within an old setting, restored to a pristine and unique look. Undoubtedly, the business venture places major emphasis on the need to promote the historical, cultural and societal importance of the prima donna which prompted the whole idea behind the project, namely... the Maltese bread in its traditional format. Apart from the meeting spots such as the 'Bar' area and the 'Discovery Room' area (primarily aimed at the younger generation), the premises offer an extensive dining coverage spread in many key points such as the 'Courtyard', the 'Attic' and other areas which may easily cater for special occasions and events.
