Description: La Mère is tucked away past the old 'Suq Tal' Belt'. Rustic wooden tables blend with Middle Eastern décor, matching the unique theme of two great cuisines - Indian and Middle Eastern. A small, intimate dining area, and flickering candles, give a warm, homely feel. However, the tables are spaced enough that you do not feel cramped. Servers are attentive and knowledgeable on the wide choice available in the menu. Here, our desire is to present a repertoire of authentic dishes, bursting with flavour, certainly a multi-sensory experience. The menu offers a broad selection of starters, allowing you to whet your palate with a Lebanese spiced lamb sausage, or enjoy mussels and chorizo in coconut milk. Mains are similarly varied, giving you a choice of curries, or perhaps king prawns or lamb chops cooked in the tandoor. Our new menu also presents a selection of main dishes with a fusion twist, such a marinated filet of fish wrapped in banana leaf. There is also a good choice of vegetarian, vegan, lactose and gluten free options. Besides we have introduced a menu degustation, an extensive wine list, cocktails and whiskeys and a broad selection of homemade desserts such as chocolate filled samosas with mango and coconut, assorted baklava, pistachio and ricotta briouats with halva ice-cream.

“An interesting concept of presenting different cuisines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

If you like Indian food, Arabian, Maltese and Mediterranean, you can find a really interesting concept in this restaurant's menu. Food is genuine. Place is cosy. Service is good. You can take your own wine and you just pay a corkage fee. Location is also good, especially for those entering Valletta with their cars for a lovely dinner. Try it!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

I would like to say thank you to all the staff at La Mere. We have just returned from this lovely restaurant and all I could say is that it's EXCELLENT. The staff are friendly and attentive to your needs, the food is superb and you won't have to wait too much even though the restaurant is always full. It's important to book before as the restaurant is always full and you will be surely disappointed. For a delicious three course meal with 4 drinks and 1 bottle of wine...the price was only €57 which is very cheap for the delicious and abundant food. We will surely come again and recommend it to everyone.

“Mediterranean experience ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

A very good located restaurant in the center of Valleta with na interesting decoration.
The menu design very well accomplished.
The food wasn't special enough, we were hoping for something better and different.
Too expensive for the kind of food that they offer.

“Consistently superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant twice so far and has become a new favourite for us both. The food is absolutely divine and mouth watering and the amount of food served is such good value for money! The service is great; staff are attentive and not imposing. The atmosphere is great for a cosy meal with friends, family or couples. Highly recommended. Take care to book in advance so as not to be disappointed, as there are a limited amount of tables in the restaurant.

“"Good Indian go there if your near!!" ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Brilliant lunch menu! We came across this place whilst walking around in the rain this place was a great surprise. We were wet and hungry which was excellent as the meals were massive so for children it is probably better to share. The food was lovely if you do not like spice then go for cool as medium is still quite hot. The service was ok but the waters were a little bit dour. Overall we enjoyed our meal at La Mere!
