Enjoyable meal our waitress explained the concept and menu. Liked the fact deserts came in small or regular. Felt sorry for staff who dealt admirably with drunken elderly lady at lunchtime

Thanks to Trip Advisor we found this gem. You get what you’re given -advertised as a 7 course taster but we got 9 somehow! Do book as many people were turned away . Good wine knowledge. Amazing bread. Just brilliant!

The quaint wine bar in Strada Sta Lucia in Valletta where the good flowing wine is exalted by Chris' unique culinary delights. Legligin is a concept restaurant and wine bar. Our €26 per person tasting menu includes Maltese and other Mediterranean dishes. There is no a la carte menu... Just sit back, relax, and let us feed you, the Legligin way. Open every day from 1 pm till late.
