Description: Michael's, a refuge offering cuisine of the land and from the sea and fusing together the traditional and the cutting edge, is fittingly housed in this very building in Valletta, a historic city also at the nexus of tradition and the brand new, yet, in perfect harmony. The same effect is sought after at Michael's. Father and son chefs Michael and Daniel Cauchi bring different experiences and opinions to the table, serving up harmonious dishes of blends of Mediterranean flavours. Chef Michael Cauchi is highly regarded locally. His famed restaurant 'Il Re Del Pesce' is still spoken of in revered tones in foodie circles, and he has served his fare to many a dignitary, including Presidents and Prime Ministers of Malta and Italy, celebrities such as Madonna, Sir Roger Moore, and celebrity chef Ainsley Harriot. Michael's cooking is delicate, respectful of tradition, and above all, based on the highest quality ingredients. Additionally Michael is a firm believer that his culinary skills are best used when they blend Mediterranean flavours into easily digestible dishes that are as kind to your waistline as they are to your palate. Lean, clean, and utterly delicious are the rules here at Michael's. On the other hand, Michael's son Daniel brings his own opinions and techniques forth, fuelled by his love for modern and fusion cuisine, yes still respectful of the traditional tastes his father is known and loved for. As to the building, it's a veritable treasure trove of history. It's known as the L'Hostel De Verdelin, after Fra Jean Jacques De Verdelin, a nephew of Grandmaster De Verdalle, took 12 years to construct, and apart from two coats of arms removed from the facade by Napoleon Bonaparte's troops in 1798, is excellently preserved in all respects. We like to think that De Verdelin, a man of excellent taste, would greatly appreciate the fine cuisine we create at Michael's, and we aspire to breathe new life into the noble culinary tradition that must have once existed in this home. Come in, and bite into tasty tradition and zesty contemporary fare!
