Description: The quaint wine bar in Strada Sta Lucia in Valletta where the good flowing wine is exalted by Chris' unique culinary delights. Legligin is a concept restaurant and wine bar. Our €26 per person tasting menu includes Maltese and other Mediterranean dishes. There is no a la carte menu... Just sit back, relax, and let us feed you, the Legligin way. Open every day from 1 pm till late.

Went on a Sunday night, after reading that it would be open when a lot of other places were closed. Managed to get a table easily. Lovely quiet atmosphere surrounded by wine bottles.

They only have the 'tasting' menu not a la carte, so you're never sure what they're going to bring out next - part of the enjoyment. One person being vegetarian didn't faze them and I had a lovely meal, and my husband still got his mea/fish fix. The best gnocchi I've ever had.

Had a wonderful evening at Legligin. Cosy and quaint, this little restaurant has bucket loads of charm and personality. The taster menu is a sample of everything served on the menu that night, and was absolutely delicious traditional Maltese cuisine. The staff are friendly and explain each dish as they serve it. You'll leave full and happy! If you do order the taster menu, make sure that you leave plenty of time to enjoy an evening of eating, as they don't rush you and you can be waiting 5 minutes between plates. Absolutely worth every single penny.

A delightful, charismatic restaurant serving a very full and comprehensive taster menu of typical Maltese and Mediterranean dishes. Our family were welcomed warmly and the courses kept on coming! The local rose wine was particularly refreshing and accompanied the meal - or was it more of a feast? - delightfully. the quality is excellent, the staff welcoming, friendly, informative and efficient. It was a delight to sample their dishes! We would highly recommend the Leglilin and will eat there again on our next visit to Malta. Many thanks from the Barr family.

As the title says, we chose Legligin because it was open on Sunday evening (most are closed in Valletta) and because of the reviews of its taster menu from trip advisor. We were not disappointed as the variety of dishes placed in front of us were myriad and flavoursome. For 20 euros each we ate our fill and our host would have given us more if we had asked for it! We chose a Maltese wine from the wine list which was good and brought the total bill, with the truffle chocolates that my husband had for dessert, to a very reasonable 70 euros.
