If you are traveling to Malta, I have good news for you. You will usually eat well. And even very well if you read my article. During a recent trip to Malta, I was able to try some good restaurants, something to inspire you if you pass by this beautiful Mediterranean island!
Located in the very picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk, Tartarun celebrates freshly caught fish and shellfish every day. Tartarun is the name of a fishing net in Maltese. Take a stroll through the picturesque fishing harbor with its colorful boats before heading to the restaurant. I ate very well at Tartarun. For starters, a succulent octopus salad, and for the main course, a tasty plate of seafood, accompanied by a good glass of chardonnay (the Isis vintage from Meridiana Wine Estate). A very nice wine list with the best of the island, including several old vintages of the Grand Master of Marsovin, one of the most famous wines of Malta. tartarun.com
In Marsaxlokk, you will find other good restaurants around the fishing port, including La Capanna and Ta’ Victor.
Caviar & Bull
This chic restaurant, located in the very modern community of St. Julian’s, offers modern Mediterranean cuisine. Chef Marvin Gauci’s cuisine features products from the local market, to the delight of the guests. I had excellent grilled squid and tacos. Most dishes come in tapas format, so order several to share! Caviar & Bull also has another restaurant in Budapest, Hungary. caviarandbull.com
Legligin is both a wine bar and a restaurant in the center of Valletta, the capital of the island of Malta. Legligin is a Maltese slang word used to describe someone who drinks too much! During my visit, I opted for the tasting menu. The cuisine is typically Maltese and the food had a lot of flavor. I left the restaurant more than full. Very good choice of wine too! A very good address in Valletta! Legligin on Facebook
Pour avoir visité quelques vignobles lors de mon passage à Malte, j’ai obtenu pas mal de recommandations de restaurants, je vous les donne en vrac :
- The Cliffs Restaurant sur la côte ouest (pour observer le coucher du soleil)
- The Medina Restaurant et De Mondion dans la superbe ville perchée de L-Imdina
- Tarragon Restaurant, Lovage Bistro et Café del Mar (pour une journée détente à la piscine) sur la côte nord
- Mgarr United (pour regarder un match de Manchester United ou manger des spécialités typiques telles que le lapin frit ou les escargots)
