Visited Rabat and Peristyle Restaurant, situated just opposite the Roman Villa, for Sunday lunch. We booked on-line for 8 of us; while booking for 13:00/13:15 the person taking our booking advised that at that time the restaurant have another two large tables and that we may have to wait when placing our order, however we may sit at our table....

We looked at many restaurants before deciding on this one. Many locals eating there - always a good sign when trying somewhere new. You can see the food being prepared in the open kitchen area - all clean and organised. We ordered pizzas - not my favorite dish in the UK but so much better in Malta. My wife had... More

We go to Malta up to three times a year and on most visits we do try to visit this watering hole for a bottle or two of local vino and of course an endless & copious amount of their "PASTIZZI". Each one of these little devils are made with a whole "GBEJNIT"......For those of you who are not familiar... More

Stopped off for lunch while we were on the HO-HO North Tour. We ordered an omelette which was massive and included side salad and chips, basket of bread. The food was all fresh and very tasty and the service was good. We sat outside as there are about 1/2 dozen tables. Very reasonable prices.

Stopped in on a hot day for a quick snack. Ended up ordering the fungi pizza. It was really large for one person, around 12", so I shared with my hubby who had already eaten the ice cream he ordered. The pizza was freshly made, had a nice thin crust, lots of pizza sauce and tons of mushroom. It was... More

I stopped to eat tortellini on the way back from Gozo, thinking I could get lunch done in 45 minutes. Infuriatingly, the place had only five or six tables occupied most of which were already served, yet the barmaid/waitress preferred to dawdle and chat with two ladies to minding me. The tortellini eventually were hardly anything to write home about... More
