No time wasted perusing menus just order your drink of choice and the plates will arrive. Each course is explained at time of delivery - my favourite on our visit was the Octopus. A Rustic restaurant with loads of character and excellent service.

Legligin is a small restaurant in the older part of Valletta. The only option on the menu was the 9 course tasting menu, which came with a very extensive wine list. We spent a little time discussing which Maltese wines would be suitable. The staff...More
