Description: Paranga is the hotel's seaside restaurant, set on teak decking adjacent to the rippling Mediterranean Sea. Here one is certain to find and an enticing and exclusive atmosphere where the centre of attention is the pristine and unspoiled natural flavour of the cuisine. Chef de Cuisine Claudio Farrugia presents a menu characterised by superb array of stimulating and diverse Sicilian flavours interpreted in both a traditional and contemporary style. Fresh fish and shellfish arrive daily from local fishermen, creating, with certainty, a peak of individual interest or the ideal fare for a special occasion. All of which may be enjoyed with an ideally selected and impeccably paired wine, aperitif or digestif.

Seating is very nice with a view of the mini bay. Food was decent; however, service was extremely slow (probably the slowest service we have had in Malta!). That said, staff were friendly and had some good suggestions.

Great table, delicious food, great atmosphere, fantastic service from Alma coming from France, she does know her job perfectly, she is very sweet and has a great sense of humor! Definitely a great asset for your restaurant! I am living in London, I’ve visited lots of restaurant, she did give us genuine service! Thank you Alma for looking after us, you deserve a promotion!

We ordered ravioli and black angus steak.
The ravioli came poor, 6 pcs and poor transperant sauce that looks like it was heated in the microwave.
The steak was horrible, it wasnt black angus, it was frozen before and the result was a stiff meat, hard to chew or cut, without any taste and also made not Medium like I ordered.
The staff didnt suggest any compansation and I stayed hungry.
Not reccomended at all.

The fish is fresh and excellent. The restaurant is really on the bay front, I asked for a table in the first row next to the sea and got exactly that, a table on the nice deck over the water. Good global presentation. The service was efficient. Nice calm atmosphere.

Offered by the Intercontinental Hotel Group, Paranga offers waterside dinner (literally) on the beach. Or if you prefer they also have some tables overlooking the beach. In any event, the settings is lovely and the food is good. Service can be a little spotty, but the team is very responsive if you ask. And with such a beautiful setting, just relax and enjoy.
