Service was tip top, and the food delicious. We were well looked after and everything was exquisite. Look forward to returning for tea and a walk... More

Mixed feelings on this one. Glad we went although it didn't do much for my 10 year old son as theres lots of things in house that you can't touch, although he liked all the little paths in the gardens. The house IS lovely and worth a visit, although the entrance fee is a little on the steep side I... More

Whenever we visit Malta, which is probably twice a year, we always try and have our first lunch here. The surroundings and food never disappoint, and we feel set up for our trip. Worth the expense.

Great food, service & location. Not the cheapest option in town but great for a treat. After dinner enjoy coffee in the garden which is beautiful

Visited the palazzo on a quiet Monday afternoon. Beautiful building and gardens with a very interesting history. Our tour guide was Nicolas - very informative and engaging. Highly recommended.

Naxxar is a quiet Maltese village with a great parish church and a few shops and cafes but not a lot more to offer- until you go through the entrance to this palace and gardens. There are around 250 varieties of bougainvillea- which I did not know- and Palazzo Parisio gardens have 80 of them covering walls and surrounding a... More

Had a fantastic tour with Nicholas around the palace he was extremely knowledgeable and a perfect person to guide us. We then had lovely walk around the garden ending with a glass of prosecco on the terrace.

A terribly disappointing move from Classic French style cooking to undisciplined Italian style cooking. Fine for a saturated market, but not for me and my friends, we used to go their for thoughtful food classically cooked with fine dining presentation. Never again.
