The staff were very welcoming and friendly. They went out of their way to help with our 2 year-old, bringing a high chair quickly and engaging with him in a lovely way.

I visited here with my husband and we enjoyed a lovely meal - as a vegetarian I was pleased there were a few options to choose from! Nibbles were provided, and the service was spot on.

We visited La Sorpresa when we were in Malta in December, and as regular visitors to the island we will definitely be back. The pizzas are fab and there is always the option of taking home what you can't manage in the restaurant, friendly and polite staff really help one to have a very pleasant visit. See you again in...

We dined here twice last week and each time it was a good experience. The pizzas are amazing and on the other occasion my husband had fish and I had chicken breast. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. Looking forward to dining at La Sorpresa again when to go to Malta at Easter.

My wife & I both attempted the set menu here. Food was wonderful but large portions so struggled a little bit. Good service, friendly staff & a nice atmosphere. Will definitely visit again.
