“Great choice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Visited after reading the reviews. Local tuna was cooked perfectly and delicious. The service was attentive and helpful, they even made a special pasta for our 3 year old upon request. Wine recommendation was spot on. We had a table with a charming view of the bay. Recommend it heartily!

“Exceptional Whole Sea Bass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

After four visits to Malta this was our first visit. We must have walked past it many times as it's really just a door on street level. But this trip after seeing the reviews on this site in we went, a spur of the moment thing with no reservation. At 7pm we were happy to be seated straight away and we saw that we were not the first arrivals. Once up the stairs it's not a big dining room. It's one level above the street and not a terrace room, but the large windows still afford a great view out over Balluta Bay.

Service was friendly and efficient and after been shown the fresh platters on display we both went for whole sea bass and that was a great choice. It could have been the catch that day but it was simple and delicious. Perfectly cooked and we delighted in taking the time to filet it ourselves, to me that's part of the fun of whole fish. At the next table the dishes looked good too, one of which was a huge beef filet. Perfectly pink and the guest's steak knife seemed to cut through it as if butter.

Wiggis is just down the road from the Meridien hotel, on the left hand side as you follow the coast road around from Balluta Bay to Spinola Bay and St. Julians. Blink and you'll miss it - but try not to.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We chanced a walk-up on our last evening in Malta and were accommodated at the last available table. It was lovely to watch the sun go down over the bay while we ate.

the food was of a very high quality and the service attentive without being intrusive.

We had the tuna and the langoustine - both delicious.

If you're in the area, and even if you aren't ...you won't be disappointed with a trip to Wigi's.

“Great food, warm welcome - book early!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

We visited Wigis for our anniversary meal while on holiday. I'm dairy free and nothing was too much trouble for them to accommodate me (unlike most places) - they even adapted the pre- food nibbles. They made us feel very welcome - the food was outstanding too - probably the best steak I've ever eaten (rib eye), and the rabbit belly/liver linguine was amazing. Thanks Wigi for the meal of our holiday, and making the night so special. If anyone is considering eating here, make sure you book in advance while we ate at least 7 couples tried to come in without a reservation. You will be glad you made that reservation.

“Best in Malta?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Have been twice at Wigi's and already decide to go there one more time before living this island.

You need to do a reservation, then it's almost fully book but it's worth it.
Exellent food, a couple of new dishes every night and good qualite.

Good prices and friendly and helpful staff that remembers you.

If you want exellent food during your Malta visit, visit Wigis :)
