Malta is a place of diverse cuisines and tastes. Here you can find a variety of different dishes and popular types of food from around the world. Filter your results based on location, cuisine and available services, such as a delivery or takeaway option. You can also check out the photo galleries and websites, and compare menus and prices. That way, you will surely find the best dining place possible.
The most popular cuisines, apart from local Maltese and Mediterranean, are Italian, Asian - such as Chinese, Thai and Japanese, Greek, Indian and Turkish. There are also places where you can fulfill any special needs or cravings, such as vegetarian, seafood, fast food restaurants and steakhouses.
As a Mediterranean country, Malta is rich in seafood and fish. Therefore, there is plenty of it on the menu in different restaurants. Apart from strictly Mediterranean and seafood restaurants, you can find seafood dishes at Greek, Indian or Asian places. The best place to experience a variety of seafood and fish is Marsaxlokk, with Sunday’s weekly fish market and colourful fishing boats all around. Restaurants at the Waterfront and around the coast usually come with a gorgeous view, so you can check the location on the map and use the photo gallery to see whether a specific restaurant has a sea-view, or a suitable interior.
Thanks its close proximity to Italy, Italian cuisine is very popular in Malta, and that’s why there are many Italian and Sicilian restaurants and pizzerias, often with Italian chefs. Most of the restaurants offer a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu which you can check on their websites. Some restaurants publish a complete menu with prices included.
Delivery and takeaway
Delivery and takeaway options are quite popular for many restaurants, especially (but not limited to) Chinese, Thai, Turkish and fast food restaurants. You can check online if a restaurant offers delivery. If yes, you can also check whether delivery is free and for which locations is delivery available. Some restaurants offer free delivery only to a specific area or above a certain amount spent.
The Yellow app offers a ‘nearby’ option, to help you find the nearest restaurants around. If distance is not relevant, you can sort by other parameters. Thanks to the photo gallery, restaurants can also be chosen based on the ambiance, such as romantic restaurants, or ones which are good for friends’ gatherings or family meetings.
Maltese restaurants’ websites and Facebook pages usually contain information about all the special events they organise, such as a buffet day, special menus or the introduction of new dishes. Some restaurants also provide a set menu which includes special dishes or the best dishes on offer.
Any additional services, such as delivery or takeaway options, available parking, children’s menu or pet-friendly restaurants, can be checked online as well. Some of the restaurants in Malta are always busy, therefore it’s good to make a reservation, especially during high season. You can make a reservation by email or phone, both available on Yellow. Restaurants around the Malta’s coast, in places such as St. Julian’s, Sliema, Valletta and St. Paul’s Bay tend to be more crowded and popular amongst tourists, so a reservation could be necessary. Also, the waiting time might be a bit longer, depending on the size of the restaurant.
