I like Grahams list
slight correction ..Fontanella Tea rooms for Choclate Cake on Mdina Bastions
Chrystal Bar , next to the roman villa for Pastizzi .
Depends a lot on what is it that you are looking for ??
Variety is the spice of life !!
There are a lot of comments by actual diners here
The choice is very vast ...depends on your budget and appetite !
cstone - do you mean the very top places ie fine dining at a price or the popular places ordinary mortals use ?
In my enthusiasm to fill the list i actually forgot my favourite so I hope you do not mind my having an 11th choice.
11) Olympic Bar - Mosta- fantastic food, cheap.
I will have a go at adding number 12 to grahams list
Europa Snack Bar
47 Old Theatre Street
Best Timpana in Valletta,but if you want you have a large choice even in Valletta only
I like to go for an English breakfast , eggs chips and toast , at Eddies or Cordina ...too, in Piazza Regina and spend an hour people watching .
Somewhere on the other side of the scale
The Kitchen of Tower road Sliema...Premium food !!!
Repeat ...Variety Spices life !
Thanks !, that should keep me going, please feel free to add more if there are anymore hidden gems.
The Luzzu in Qawra and Tal Famiglia in Marsalscala.
We had an excellent baguette at Eddie's in Valletta.
Please note that many of the restaurants mentioned can take their place in the Top Ten POPULAR restaurants in Malta - not in the Top Ten GOURMET ones.
To see what we are talking about have a look at www.starwebmalta.com
I've had lovely meals at il-Veduta at Saqqajja Square in Rabat .. nice food and stunning view and if there are footie freaks out there you can actually see into the stadium from there too.
As Hat mentioned Luzzu in Qawra.. I've never been disappointed.
Overflow in Qawra ... still loving the Reef Steak and Baked Beef options.
One that has moved OFF of my list is il-Garra located at the White Dolphin complex Qawra. It's under new management and is extremely overpriced for an averagely made meal. ... many people have told them but they insist in plodding on. You will easily get a table here as it's a once tried never to return type place... In Lino's defence I think the rental of the place is not helping but sometimes you have to get butts on seats. It's a self catering complex and the reason people go to those is to cut down on expenditure. I'm not suggesting giving it away but it will need to be closer to the residents budgets as it was with the previous owner.
