Welcome to our restaurant


Amid the charming, vibrant atmosphere of a former traditional Maltese fishing village and nowadays the only place on the island to enjoy all the traditional and modern ways to spend your time, a unique culinary surprise awaits at the La Maltija Restaurant.
La Maltija is a place where the atmosphere of the world-renowned Maltese hospitality meets the innovation and expertise of some of the world's top class chefs, under the direction of the critically acclaimed, award winning chef, Mr Charles Spiteri voted the best chef in 1997 on local TV.

A range of exceptional dishes, from sea fish to lobsters and oysters ensure La Maltija is the most sought out fish restaurant in Malta. Fish is boiled, roasted and grilled according to recipes from around the world! The fish is either live or freshly imported and stored on ice, still somewhat a rarity in Southern Europe.

As one would expect from a first-class restaurant, the restaurant's wine cellar is extensive, housing some of the best local wines from Malta, along with fine French, Italian and South African wines.
