You receive a starter that includes the butter and bread. It is quite statisfactory, But not excellent. The main course is sufficient, But when you finish you feel it coul be better

It's one of those places you go with a big appetite. I loved the local nibbles..with an aperitiv, then it was the shell fish platter and my favourite, the lamb fillets cooked to perfection. The choice is very good. The wine selection was excellent and the owner was very generous with the liquors!

we ate here twice during our stay in malta

the first night we arrived we was to late to eat in our hotel so we went out to find this hidden gem

we arrived at around 10.45 and asked if they were still serving food and was told the kitchen shuts at 11 but they would be happy to have us come in

we were hungry but because it was so late we decided just to have a main course. The food was excellent and enough to feed 4 (not just 2)! The service was outstanding and the staff couldn't have been more attentive.

Om our second visit they were no less accommodating. Every aspect of the meal was exceptional (including the complimentary strawberries and after-dinner drinks)

We will definitely be back next time we're in Malta!

We wanted something in town but also quiet, we opted for La Maltija because it was in a traditional setting yet in town. We sat at the back behind a hidden arch, and had shell fish to start, followed by spaghetti lobster for mains. The portions are really big, and we were served by a lovely foreign lady who told us that Maltese people like a lot of food also served with traditional Maltese bread.


Very genuine, wholesome food. Loved it.

I've been to malta a number of times and always make it a point to go there alone or with clients. I was never let down.

The food is always superb, the wine selection is simply incredible and the staff are great!! An amazing example of how patrons of a restaurant should be treated.
