“Excellent evening!”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Excellent service; when I booked online I stated that it was going to be my boyfriend's birthday and they made sure he was adequately treated on that special evening.. All service staff were friendly, attentive but not too evasive. The food was tasty and we were given a complimentary selection of dips upon arrival. The atmosphere was elegant and relaxing.. We will definitely visit again!

“An absolute must..... BOOK IN ADVANCE!!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

It's certainly not the cheapest, but we had an excellent meal here. We had the Irish beef dish (basically a steak in pepper sauce), it was cooked perfectly, well presented and deceptively filling. The staff were very good, very professional and put on a friendly face.

Be warned though, it's fame and popularity has bought it exclusivity and this has bought it to the attention of those loud pretentious types who love telling the whole restaurant about their yachts, cars, multiple homes, etc..... If you end up next to such a group, just ignore them (they hate this) and simple enjoy the great food!!!

“Great food accompanied by impeccable service”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

where shall i start..... the staff was extremely welcoming and exceptionally well mannered, offering helpful advice and careful explanation for all our questions. nothing felt rushed and immediately they make you feel relaxed and pampered.

the menu, although not very vast, offers so many tempting dishes that what was planned to be a quick one plate dinner, ended up into a full three course meal, just so that we could try at least two other dishes.

once presented, the food didn't disappoint - everything was fresh and perfectly cooked. We could tell that the food had been prepared with high quality ingredients.

definitely a restaurant i'll recommend, and which i'll be returning to

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 14 January 2014

Fantastic atmosphere with food and service to match. Great and varied choice on the menu, all fresh and cooked to perfection. Faultless. Worth a visit, this was the best part of my trip to Malta

“A scrumptious New Year's eve dinner”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

I am not a fan of dining out on days like Valentine's day, Christmas and New year's eve however this time round we did want to go out for a good meal where we were sure the standards would be just as good (or even better) than any other day. With these expectations in mind we were confident that Commando Restaurant would be right place to go to.
Our high expectations were exceeded. There were seven of us and after each course we were all raving about how good our choice of food was.
The team at Commando are all very friendly and professional and full of smiles.
We are eager for our next meal there. Keep up the fantastic work!
