I loved this place before I even stepped inside, it’s endearing times-gone-by façade and old school shop-front made me smile.
Once inside, perched at a marble table for two, my husband and I were further enchanted by the drinks list and fabulous nibbles on the specials board. With an expertly mixed Negroni in hand we got chatting to the delightfully passionate lady-boss of the establishment, who creates and preps all the food herself personally. You can really feel the love and thought that she puts into all the detail.
Even if the “call of nature” doesn’t call you while visiting Cru, you simply have to visit the bathroom - because it’s utterly stunning - though I won’t spoil the surprise, just go and see it for yourselves! Chin chin xxx

We had two cocktails in this nice small bar. The staff was very friendly and knew a lot about their wines and cocktails. The food was great as well

What a great little bar - we stumbled across this place and ended up returning twice. The owners are really friendly and knowledgeable, the wine is great and the food was superb. Highly recommended.

We came across this very small wine bar whilst in Valletta for ten days. It was so nice and the two people that run it ( Paolo and Julia) were very helpful, chatty and knowledgeable about the wines they have. The 'small eats' are really tasty and have a french feel to them. We would totally recommend a visit, in fact we did three times in total. Do go but keep it between us :))

Like others we came across Cru by accident. Unfortunately we weren't drinking today so had to pass up the wine. But I'd like to say that the plates that we had were really tasty and satisfying, the atmosphere very relaxed and conducive and plenty of choice for a vegetarian. We'll go back and enjoy with a glass of wine tomorrow i think!
