Visited on our last night in Malta for dinner. The food was delicious, staff were very friendly and attentive. Although more expensive than other restaurants we visited during our stay it was well worth the extra for the quality of the food and the ambience. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Dolce Vita for a dinner. It was a superbe experience. The restaurant and it's view is incredible. But this is not the whole. The cusine is high level, we loved the amuse bouche and great main courses. Great job Dolce Vita

Beautiful setting, excellent service and the food is simply outstanding.. in my opinion its one of the best restaurants on the Island and no doubt will recommend this restaurant to others and will be visiting them many more times, especially in the summer season where one can enjoy the amazing views besides the excellent cuisine.

We visited the restaurant for dinner. The location is first class and the inner decoration is simple and fine. The food is very average and the service was much below our expectations. I can summarize this retaurant as not better than other similar restaurants in this area. Just an average restaurant.

THE food did not meet the price tag. They charge you for complimentaries that should be free. Overall a nice package with lousy quality.
