We visited here on our first night in Valletta. We wanted something relatively laid back, with local cuisine. The seven course taster menu was great, the standouts the rabbit, and fish courses. We had a lovely Nexus Merlot, a Maltese wine, to accompany. The servers...More

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.
