We chose this restaurant for a friend's birthday and it was one of our best choices ever! The food and service are amazing. The tuna was delicious but then so were the rabbit and pork and the starters were each great in their own way...More

Great food as always, Michael's never disappoints! Starting from the freshly made breads given with the meal and straight through to dessert...it is amazing! Top that up with two great ladies who attended to our table and their lovely way with our five year old...More

My husband and I had dinner here last week whilst on holiday in Valletta. The service was attentive and the food exceedingly good. We could certainly recommend Michael's as a must place to eat in Malta.

Staff were extremely friendly. Food was full of flavour and very fresh. Portion sizes are extremely generous so be sure to go there with an empty stomach. Would definitely return.

The 6 of us had a fabulous meal, the service was very attentive and the food was by far the best we have had in Valletta. The starter of risotto was superb and the rib eye steaks and pork belly were cooked to perfection. Presentation...More

We were recommended to eat here by our hotel. It is a beautiful building and the food was delicious. An interesting menu. Service excellent. The only reason I didn't award 5* is due to the lack of ambience as the restaurant was so quiet.

Had a delicious dinner at this restaurant on our last night in Valetta. We had only two nights In Valetta and were so glad we had chosen to come to Michael's. Easy to find--just head down Republic to Archbishop Street (look for the HSBC sign...More

Like many buildings in Malta, once inside you feel the local history. Good service, for a food that could be better. Why hiding the veal carpaccio under one kilogram of salad ? Why serving the rib eye with this very sweety not pleasant gravy ?...More

Wow, what a place. Fabulous decoration and an amazingly presented seating. We were very lucky to get the table viewing into the kitchen, it is mesmerising watching them work. The food here is beyond words, complete different level to all around it. Totally top class...More

Michael's, a refuge offering cuisine of the land and from the sea and fusing together the traditional and the cutting edge, is fittingly housed in this very building in Valletta, a historic city also at the nexus of tradition and the brand new, yet, in perfect harmony. The same effect is sought after at Michael's. Father and son chefs Michael and Daniel Cauchi bring different experiences and opinions to the table, serving up harmonious dishes of blends of Mediterranean flavours. Chef Michael Cauchi is highly regarded locally. His famed restaurant 'Il Re Del Pesce' is still spoken of in revered tones in foodie circles, and he has served his fare to many a dignitary, including Presidents and Prime Ministers of Malta and Italy, celebrities such as Madonna, Sir Roger Moore, and celebrity chef Ainsley Harriot. Michael's cooking is delicate, respectful of tradition, and above all, based on the highest quality ingredients. Additionally Michael is a firm believer that his culinary skills are best used when they blend Mediterranean flavours into easily digestible dishes that are as kind to your waistline as they are to your palate. Lean, clean, and utterly delicious are the rules here at Michael's. On the other hand, Michael's son Daniel brings his own opinions and techniques forth, fuelled by his love for modern and fusion cuisine, yes still respectful of the traditional tastes his father is known and loved for. As to the building, it's a veritable treasure trove of history. It's known as the L'Hostel De Verdelin, after Fra Jean Jacques De Verdelin, a nephew of Grandmaster De Verdalle, took 12 years to construct, and apart from two coats of arms removed from the facade by Napoleon Bonaparte's troops in 1798, is excellently preserved in all respects. We like to think that De Verdelin, a man of excellent taste, would greatly appreciate the fine cuisine we create at Michael's, and we aspire to breathe new life into the noble culinary tradition that must have once existed in this home. Come in, and bite into tasty tradition and zesty contemporary fare!
