As soon as we saw the 26€ menu on the door we thought it would be another tradition-like, low-quality tourist restaurant. However the place proved to be over expectations. The 26€ menu includes many traditional Maltese and Mediterranean dishes, including starters, soup, fish, salad and meat, scoring in both quality and quantity. The service was excellent and the personnel very... More

Found this place by chance after struggling to find somewhere open mid afternoon for a late lunch...what a find it was. We were looking for somewhere with a lovely view to sit and watch the world go by (should be simple in Valletta) and we ended up in an enchanting cave/cellar restaurant with a charming hostess who is passionate about...

Just when you think you are jaded on this island because you have seen it and done it all…you discover a place that reminds you what a lovely island Malta is. My friend wanted to go to a wine bar and have a (boring) platter. Our first choice was closed for a private function so I suggested Legligin thinking it... More

The owner chose our wine, an excellent Maltese. And the servers brought out plate after plate of tastings of exquisitely prepared local cuisine. It was a tour of Maltese cuisine all in small plates. Lots of different flavors, all good. Delightful cellar ambience in an historic Valletta house. Low prices. Only complaint was that there was too much food and... More

The local Menu Legligin offers is absolutely fantastic as well as the wines they have. The service is also really good! This place is a "must go" for everyone in Valletta!

Really and truly, this has to be a bucket list for Malta. We did the multiple course option, and while it's a bit of a splurge, worth every penny or euro if you will. This truly is a spot where the details is perfected and you'll be treated like a queen/king. Only downside was it was cold with the air... More

Had lunch here with my wife and 2 kids. For a set price they serve several courses of small plates that allows you to taste a wide range of food that is not only fresh but of high standard . Good concept which works well. But they only serve alcohol and have no soft drinks at all hence a lower... More

Top food, good wine, cool place - but make sure you call in advance and reserve your seat - the place is usually packed. They don't offer an official card at night but offer a tasting menu of Maltese specialties - very good. Very recommendable. By the way: they don't really appreciate children if they are too small - but... More

On Sundays, most of the businesses are closed, including restaurants. They so happened to be opened on Sundays. It's a fixed price menu, I think it's 45 Euro. They give you 6 to 7 small dishes, enough to fill your appetite. It's a family run business, food was fabulous, everybody was very friendly and helpful. Be sure to make reservation,... More

We went here after wandering the streets of Valetta. The atmosphere inside is cosy and welcoming perfect for a windy evening. The menu is fixed, myself and my boyfriend don't eat meat, but this was no problem for them. Food was excellent quality, we had pumpkin soup, a fruit and seedy salad, baked aubergine, local cheese and olives, a large... More
