Fodor's Review

Atop the quiet west end of Valletta's mighty bastions, this is among the city's most reserved and elegant restaurants. Leading politicians and the fashionable set dine here on haute Maltese-Italian cuisine with dishes including braised local rabbit and veal chops. Seafood is available according to the day's catch. The air-conditioned dining room has a contemporary rather than minimalistic feel. Tables on the open balcony style terrace overlook the Sliema waterfront, but if it's too hot on the terrace, try the table just inside the open full-length windows to get the best view combined with a little cool air. There is a lounge downstairs; the restaurant is on the fifth floor. An elevator only takes you part of the way; you'll still have to climb a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant.
