As we wandered the streets of Valletta, we came across La Giara and had some drinks and snacks - two days in a row! Great venue and fantastic staff! Well done! Graham and Leslie Bush, Durban, South Africa.

We often stopped in 'La Giara' on our return from a day out, late afternoon. Merely for a drink and a rest of the way back to our rented house.
Due to circumstances we did not manage to eat there until our last night.
I had asked about fish in the afternoon.
No sooner had we sat down at our table, the owner (and chef) appeared with a large tray of 'very' fresh fish. I was allowed to pick a sea bass for my meal. This was presented with a small dish of vegetables for my wife and I. Not a lot, but enough for us.
We had good service, Maltese wine, and very nice food.
We finished with grappa & limoncello, and the price for all this .. 50 - euro.
Nothing else to add.

We found this restaurant quite by chance! Everything about the evening was just wonderfully done. The service was fast, friendly and efficient, the food was beautifully presented and really very delicious! The wine list was comprehensive with wines to suit any budget! The restaurant is well furnished and has wonderful ambiance. There is interesting history associated with the restaurant and in parts of the restaurant it is possible to view the historic remains beneath the floor! A relaxing and memorable evening. Definitely will return here when next in Valletta! Really recommended.

We stumbled across this restaurant and had lunch while we were on holidays. The food was delicious and the staff were helpful and friendly. The extra touch of the bruchetta while we were waiting for our food only added to the experience. It was so good, we came back the next day for dinner (only place we ate twice while on holidays). I would definitely recommend it.
