As every year, for my wife birthday and I try impress and look to dine in the best restaurants on the island. This year we tried Rubino and we treated very well.
The food was excellent and cooked locally. The restaurant is famous for the Castella and it surely delivered an awesome desert.
Very good for an elegant occasion and to impress.

Two hours after landing we found ourselves hungry and Rubino was the first place we came across. Great decision. Friendly service, great food (risotto starter excellent and large enough to have been a main course) and good value.

Absolutely packed even on a weekday in May. Filled with long time locals so the atmosphere was particularly special. Menu is on the wall and the waiters carefully explain how each dish is prepared. Rabbit is of course recommended. Dessert was excellent. Special place.

The Rubino might not be the cheapest restaurant in town, but it's one that has the best value for money considering the quality of its cusine and the reasonably priced wines on offer. The restaurant is quite atmospheric, although perhaps too cramped for some and, if there are more customers than expected, the staff might be run off their feet. Nevertheless, the service is friendly and the general feel is one of being in Malta rather than in a tourist rip-off joint. If you have time to spare and wish to soak up the local ambience while enjoying good local food, the Rubino is a place to go....as I did twice!
