Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just amazing! We enjoyed the tasting menu and it was a taste sensation. The flavours were to die for! We loved every bite and had a wonderful evening. The front off house staff are excellent and make you feel so special and your every need...is looked. If you're in Mellehia, do make booking, it's so worth it!More

Lovely Building with lots of history. Amazing greeting, and shown to our table which was in a room on the on the right hand side of the restaurant, as we were having the taster menu with wine. The dishes were excellent and so were the...wine choices. Every dish was explained as was the accompanying wine. The service was excellent. We will be visiting again on our next trip to Malta.More

The food was all fantastic and we had a really lovely evening. We ordered the Chateaubriand and the chef came out to serve it which was lovely. It’s a beautiful little restaurant off the beaten track and I was recommended it by a friend. We...travelled from Valletta specifically for Rebekah’s and I’ll recommend it to everyone visiting Malta moving forward. The only fault is that the atmosphere in the restaurant is a little quiet and flat which is a shame. But with some reconfiguration of the tables and some good background music this could definitely be fixed! I’ll definitely be returning when I’m next in Malta! Make sure you book to go, you won’t regret it.More

I am a professional writer and yet I am worried that my words will fail to do justice to the magnificence of Rebekah's. Put simply, the dinner my wife and I had there on the 1st of November this year was one of a handful...of the best meals I have enjoyed in my entire 55 years of life. Beyond that, the more than four hours we spent savoring the ambience of the restaurant and the hospitality of the entire team made for a truly unforgettable night. Having read about Rebekah's several times, and because it was our first trip to Malta and I wanted everything to be perfect, I made reservations several months in advance. Perhaps this was unnecessary, but it certainly served to build our anticipation for what we expected to be a wonderful experience. Our expectations were not only met, they were exceeded! We arrived earlier than our 7 pm (19:00) reservations, and in actuality, we arrived a little bit before the restaurant was set to open (18:30)! Yet, as soon as the host saw us outside on the quiet street, he came out to warmly greet us and immediately welcomed us inside. He gave us a tour of the converted farmhouse, pointing out the delightful architectural oddities on display. We had reserved a table inside the cozy dining room. He could tell, however, that the open-air courtyard had really captured my wife's fancy, and so he strongly urged that we consider a corner table for two in the fresh air. I am so grateful that he did. My wife loved our table and that courtyard, but I think she might never have told me of her desire because she would have feared disappointing me! A delightful sparkling wine from Alsace was served to us while we contemplated the menu. There were many dishes I had long anticipated trying. However, we ended up selecting the tasting menu. If it is your first visit to Rebekah's, this is what I would strongly recommend. Malta is fascinating for many reasons, but one reason is that because of its location, so many culinary influences from so many different parts of the world are felt. Many restaurants try to honor and reflect Malta's wide variety of cuisines, but no other place we visited did so in as delicate and artistic (and delicious!) a way as Rebekah's. Two "beverage pairing" menus are offered. The difference in prices is so modest, and the care with which the wines are chosen is so inspiring, that I strongly urge the premium pairing menu. It was nothing less than a fascinating education to learn about the wines, and why the wines would both change in flavor AND change the experience of the courses with which they were served. This expertise was offered in a patient and relaxed way. I hope the staff enjoys what they do as much as we enjoyed them because we will never forget them. Towards the end of the night, the great chef and patron, Andrew Vella, appeared to chat with us and the other diners. He offered some valuable advice for us where our forthcoming culinary adventures in Malta were concerned. He even agreed to autograph one of the tasting menus for us to bring with us. That would have been a treasured keepsake. Unfortunately, he left that night forgetting to sign one of the menus. No matter, it's just another reason for us to make sure we return some day in the future . And return we will. In fact, we will arrange our accommodations with proximity to Rebekah's in mind!More

Fabulous food, attentive staff, amazing atmosphere. Well worth the effort getting there. Remember to book ahead because this place is popular and you might be disappointed if you think you can just walk up and get a table. Even in low season (currently mid October)...the restaurant was fully booked. We managed to squeeze in by booking in advance. Michelin accreditation goes to show the level at which this restaurant performs.! We had an amazing night here. My wife is intolerant to dairy and I stated that when booking. They took it seriously and the chef was able to create dairy-free versions of their menu. Just amazing. Thank you for making our evening out in Mellieha very special.More

If I could have, I would have given this place 0 stars; they almost killed my father. We have dined at many beautiful, fine dining restaurants around the world and we have never been so disappointed and disrespected. There were 5 of us and we...like to try a bunch of different flavours so we ordered 3 appetizers and 4 main dishes. We indicated that we would be sharing everything and that my father is allergic to fish and nuts. We asked if any of the items we ordered were a problem and nothing was indicated. We also ordered cocktails to start and a bottle of wine, so we were not being “cheap”. When the starters came out, the server told us what everything was, including the beef tartar that he then poured a caviar sauce all over. As soon as he did it, we all were shocked. When we indicated again that my dad was allergic to fish, he shrugged and said “oh well”. The chef then happened to be at another table and came over to ask what was wrong. When we indicated what happened, he said there was nothing that could be done. And then when we asked for plates to share what was in front of us (excluding my dad from the beef tartar) they then told us that they would not bring us plates because “they don’t do that here”. This was not indicated at the time of ordering from our server or we would have just changed our ordering. They were completely rude about this. We didn’t feel that they were taking my fathers allergy serious so we no longer felt safe for him to eat there. It was absolutely the worst dining experience I have ever had.More

I have dined at Rebekah's Restaurant numerous times and every visit was great. This fine dining restaurant consistently provides an unparalleled experience. When I step in, I am immediately enveloped in an ambience of elegance and refinement. A perfect service is provided where the waiter...suggests suitable wines one can pair with the meal. Moreover, the waiter's knowledge of the wine is excellent. He provides a good description of its taste. Each dish is a masterpiece both in appearance and taste, as it should be in a Michelin Star Restaurant.More

A truly outstanding restaurant. We booked as a treat to end our holiday and not sure what to expect were blown away. The interior of this restaurant is absolutely gorgeous and has been renovated so sympathetically to the original building. The service was absolutely second...to none, being far better than Michelin star restaurants I have visited in London. We felt absolutely welcomed and looked after from start to finish. The knowledge of the sommelier was fantastic and he chose two delicious wines which complimented our meal. The food was absolutely out of this world we couldn’t even decide which dishes we would recommend over others! Thank you so much for a wonderful end to our holiday!More
