Looking to indulge in fine dining but you’d rather not break the bank doing so? One more restaurant operated by the Institute of Tourism Studies (ITS), the Runway located within the Institute’s campus in Luqa, is a training restaurant where young, aspiring students showcase their passion for food and drink, while they are provided with the opportunity to put their talents and skills to the test.
Designed by the students themselves, the menus change periodically and consist of a three-course meal, a selection of freshly baked bread and drinks. Amongst our delicious options, diners can relish the venison, white cabbage and apple parcels, our prawn bisque infused with lemon oil or a warming and smooth celeriac soup, all serving as appetizing options to commence your meal. Savour one of our mains like the fillets of sea bream cushioned on a bed of vegetables, the sauteed cuts of chicken complemented with button mushrooms and tomato concasse or select our tasty veal involtini with parma ham and mozzarella.
Why not sink your teeth in some freshly baked bread baked in our in-house bakery? And if you’re suffering from food intolerances, do not worry. Our eatery offers diners gluten-free rolls that have the same fresh taste. Leave room for our decadent desserts that may include deep-fried banana fritters served with a smooth apricot sauce, a vanilla and strawberry swiss roll or a delicious choux pastry case filled with cream and dusted with icing sugar.
Our students’ passion and inventiveness are transferred to the bar, where talented bartenders and mixologists in training shake things up with their skills. Elevating a well-loved classic and giving it their own Maltese take, the popular Irish Coffee is one such example, infused with a Maltese honey liqueur instead of an Irish whiskey. Alternatively, opt for our prized champaign, Hennessy and raspberry cocktail.
Open daily for lunch and on Tuesdays for dinner, our opening hours depend on students’ class schedule and study programmes, while the menu can be viewed via our website. Enjoy refined dishes at affordable prices and marvel out students’ creativity at the Runway. Click on the Book Now button to reserve a table instantly.
