Description: This historical place dating back to World War One came back to life after an extensive renovation. Situated on the waters' edge one can enjoy the views of Manuel Island and Sliema Fort while towering above are the great Valletta bastions. Our team of chefs created a brilliant Sicilian menu to complement this ambiance. One cannot miss the daily catch caught directly from our fishing vessels cooked AL SALE or ZUPPA adding some calamari and prawns for the best experience ever :)

Restaurant is excellent for fish. Great display and fantastically cooked fresh fish!!! Service is also excellent. Really recommended.

Went to this restaurant the other night. To say that service was lousy would be too much of a compliment. Half an hour to pay the bill, etc. The excuse for the lousy service “because we are full”. Get more waiters or accept less bookings, it is not the customers problem.

Apart from lousy service, the food was completely mediocre for the price paid – our table all agreed that we could have done a better job of cooking at home. Finally, I don’t know if it was just on the night, but the place was so loud that you couldn’t even hear yourself think, let alone speak across the table. It was like being at a bingo night during a village feast. By the end of it, I had a massive headache. All in all, a very disappointing experience, never to return but a pity because the location is nice and the ambiance is nice, but that is about it. So if you want a nice relaxing dinner with good food and service, just go somewhere else.

We had our second evening meal in Valletta at Scoglitti and the place was full enough to create a good atmosphere. Although we only wanted main courses and a bottle of wine, there was no pressure to rush and we enjoyed a relaxed meal. I had swordfish and it was cooked to perfection. Service was professional. We'll visit again.

The first time I went to Scoglitti was in January 2014. It was a little pricey but the food was great, as were the ambience and the service.

The second and third time I went to Scoglitti, were in March and April 2014 and I could not believe the difference. Food was being ordered haphazardly (and with random errors) despite the high-tech gadgets sported by the waiters, the food was mediocre and the price was exactly the same as that when the service was much better back in January.

One does have to allow for genuine mistakes in food orders, but twice in a row is a little bit too much. Moreover, the quality of the food has deteriorated drastically and the restaurant does not live to the reputation it acquired when it opened.

I don't think I'll be going there again any time soon.

Situated close to the ferry crossing between Valletta & Sliema, the Scoglitti Restaurant's exterior suggests a classy, professional, up market experience awaits those dining inside & so it proved to be. We visited on the busy May Day lunch time, with every seat in the building & those arrayed outside, taken - mainly we noticed, by locals not holidaymakers. The food was exceptional, the veal ribeye with artichokes an absolute delight - whilst the fresh seafood (superbly displayed) was all you could ask for. The service on an extremely busy lunchtime was exemplary, the attention to detail & the attentiveness & the totally professional way the restaurant was run was close to Michelin standard. It was a real pleasure to dine here.
