“A treasure trove for salads and gourmet snacks”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

The White sheep is a small , very tastefully designed corner restaurant having a lovely homely feeling about it as soon as you step inside and are greeted by the owners. Although it seems to focus on outside catering , it's also possible to eat inside. There are about 8 high chairs to chose from and I had a Parma ham salad which was by far the best salad I've ever had in Malta. The leaves were extremely fresh and covered with generous portions of Parma ham and Parmigiano cheese. You can also choose from freshly-made soups, sandwiches and pasta as well as buy a wide array of packaged gourmet foods. The atmosphere is intimate, the food delicious and the service efficient. It's a bit on the expensive side but worth every euro.

“My favorite restaurant in Malta!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

I love the sandwiches here! Great for vegetarians. High quality ingredients, including good bread when you need a break from the Maltese hobz.
It is not fast food, and seating is limited, but that is the atmosphere of the place. Highly recommend for take away and a picnic on the lovely island.

“Still the best salads in Malta”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

Return visit after a few months. The love and total dedication that goes into the dishes at The White Sheep is impressive. So much so that the proprietoress presented us with a delightful platter of superior Spanish Serano ham with her compliments and apologies for the delay. We would have happily waited all afternoon with such generous hospitality.
The food is classy, beautiful and delicious. The produce in the 'foody' shop is difficult to resist and the general feeling of wellbeing mean that the price is irrelevant, albeit not unreasonable. Looking forward to our next visit. Well done ladies!

“Sssshhh don't tell anyone about this place!”
Reviewed 8 March 2013 via mobile

Lovely, small, exclusive gourmand shop offering a surprisingly varied menu of succulent salads, ciabattas and a soup-of-the-day served by two lovely foody sisters. Reasonably priced and friendly.
