Following recommendations we decided to spend the evening in the Temptasia restaurant, which is located at the top floor of the Palace Hotel. The view from up there is unrivaled but the overall experience we had tonight was unfortunately disappointing.
First of all, don't go there if you haven't reserved a table. Although there were plenty of tables unoccupied the entire evening we were told that there were no free seats for us in the dining area. So we were led to the lounge area and got our own little romantic gazebo with pretty couches, which was nice. However it was clear that we were not priority guests. That was how we felt the rest of the evening, which turned into the night because we waited more than an hour for our food. Furthermore, we were pretty much ignored most of the time and we spend quite some time with our glasses empty and nobody asking us wether we wanted more to drink. This is of course no major issue, however in a restaurant of such renown one would expect the personal to be more attentive.
The food was alright. The chicken was quite tasty but the rice tasted as if it had gone cold some time ago and was put into the microwave prior to serving it. The sizzled fish was partly burned. All in all the portions are very small for the money you pay and the time you have to wait. I must say, this experience was not the best we had in Malta. There are much nicer restaurants on the island that are worth a visit and are much less expensive. We will not return to Temptasia, sadly.
