Reviewed yesterday NEW

My food was badly cooked, with an ancient piece ( yellowed!) of broccoli on the plate- a very small portion for 25 euro, 2 euro for a small bottle of water .

It was a family visit. The food was excellent. We got seafood for starters and meat for main dishes. We thought that the quantities of the starters would be small, but not. Salmon salad was quite big and bouillabaisse was main-dish size.

Unfortunately, didn't find this place until our last night. Service and food was the best we had during our stay in Valletta. Group of 4 of us had tuna tartare and house fish cakes to start, followed by the sea bass baked in salt with nice veg mix together with mashed and roast potatoes. Absolutely superb! Fish was cooked to... More

We had an excellent grilled sea bass at La Sfoglia. The service was very kind and the location very pleasant, with tables in the middle of the Triq Il-Merkanti. The white wine was also very good and at the right temperature. All in all it was maybe a bit overpriced, but the food was so good we forgave it.

We were recommended this by a Maltese resident. It was good, but nothing special. The seating area is outside in a Marquee type thing, with heaters, but in early April it is still cold. We ate inside in all other restaurants. The belly pork is very good and a large helping and is to be recommended, but I would not... More

My Mum and I came here upon a recommendation of a Maltese national so we thought, this has to be good! I have to say, it definitely lived up to expectations. The menu, whilst small, was choice and the food was to die for. We had Calamari to start which was a GREAT choice (if I do say so myself!).... More

We were hoping to go to another restaurant but it was closed and fell across Sfoglia. We ate outside in a heated tent as the evening was cool. Excellent service and very attentive waiters. Ordered the sea bass baked in salt which was perfectly cooked and came to the table quickly. Not cheap but worth it. Generous portions followed by... More

Stopped here for lunch as it seemed very popular with the locals, always a good sign. The house wine was very good and we both had the ribeye which was cooked really well, with nice sides. The other choices on the menu were plentiful from a number of fish dishes to rabbit, veal, chicken etc. Perfectly located in the middle... More
