In this blog, you will find 8 fantastic food spots you have to check out in Malta! So you know places to go to when you arrive beforehand!

Small but beautiful' describes Malta perfectly. The island is only 30 km long, but it has everything you could wish for - golden beaches, magnificent monuments and sunshine all year round.

But Malta also has a lot to offer in terms of cuisine! We picked the best restaurants and tagged their Instagram profiles for you in this blog. So you’ll know where to go when you arrive on the Mediterranean island!

Colourful Mini Pancakes at Mamma's Sugar



Our first recommendation is this guilty pleasure from Mamma's Sugar in Valletta. The café serves all kinds of sweets that are good-looking on your Instagram story and taste heavenly. A speciality of the house is the fluffy mini pancakes, served with various colourful sauces. In addition to white chocolate and pistachio crunch, other flavours like strawberry, banana and lemon are available now. But if you're in the mood for something different, you can order a slice of Oreo cake or delicious filled cream puffs (Balkan Eclair)!
You can find the café in the capital Valletta at the address: 31 Triq l-Abate Rigord, Ta' Xbiex, Malta

Brunch at The Avenue


'The Avenue Restaurant' has been impressed with the quality of its lovingly prepared food since 1987 and has recently added a brunch menu! They serve a mix of traditional and modern dishes to their guests. Whether you prefer a refreshing smoothie bowl, a classic English Breakfast or a Bacon & Egg Bagel, you will find something you crave on the menu. The company's philosophy is to offer everyone a memorable taste experience with simple dishes but quality ingredients. It's best to test it out with your friends to see exactly how they do it!
You can find the restaurant in Valletta at the address: Vjal Portomaso San Giljan, PTM 0001, Malta

Ice cream break at Roll & Chill



We've all seen these videos on TikTok and Instagram reels where unfrozen ice cream is spread out on a cooling plate, twisted into little rolls and decorated with toppings in a cup, right? At Roll & Chill, you can get such cool ice cream! The ice cream parlour also offers filled bubble waffles, fruity lemonade and creamy milkshakes!
With a wide selection of toppings, there's a perfect combination for everyone! So if you need a break from sightseeing, you have to stop by Roll & Chill for a little refreshment!
You can get the ice cream in Valletta at 170 St. Lucia's Street Il-Belt Valletta, VLT 1187, Malta.

Dinner with sea view at Il Gabbiano Restaurant Gozo



Fish and meat lovers, take note! This restaurant is the absolute insider tip in the north of Malta. The traditional restaurant stands out with its breathtaking sea view. While you enjoy your juicy lamb steak or prawn pasta, you can marvel at the unique sea view. You also get a quality experience, as the Maltese food is freshly prepared and sourced from local suppliers. So if you're ever travelling in the north of the island or want to go on a day trip, be sure to stop by Il Gabbiano Restaurant Gozo. You can take the ferry by car to Iż-Żebbuġ, which is a drive of 1.5 hours from Valletta.
The exact address of the restaurant is: Saint Mary St, Iż-Żebbuġ, Malta

Chacutery board at bottegafrawli



If you want to enjoy a nice evening with friends and good wine, Bottegafrawli is the place to be. The restaurant has delicious snacks and aromatic wine on its menu. For example, a charcuterie plate with focaccia bread, small pieces of cheese and various slices of sausage. Another recommendation is the Figliata cheese, a buffalo mozzarella served with wafer-thin carpaccio slices. To top it off, the large wine list will light up any wine lover's eyes. 
You can find the restaurant in the southwestern part of the island at the following address: Dun Edgar, L-Imġarr, MGR 9051, Malta

Dinner for gourmets at Taste Valletta



The famous and perhaps best Agnolotti Taleggio Cheese Pasta is available at Taste in Valletta. The pasta originated in Italy and is a Maltese national dish prepared with goat cheese filling. The restaurant's prices are rather in the higher price range, but you also get a lot for it and generally, the costs in Malta are lower than in other European countries like Germany or Sweden. The refined ambience and the lovingly arranged plates are perfect for celebrating a special occasion. For example, you could celebrate the last night before you leave or your birthday with your colleagues. So if you want to treat yourself, you can end the evening with an Aperol Spritz and a strawberry sorbet. By the way, reservations can only be made by phone or email, and you can find The Taste at this address: 9 St. Lucy Street, Il-Belt Valletta, Malta.

Asian delicacies at Wagyu Bar & Kitchen


For a special dinner that should end up in your socials, head to Wagyu Bar & Kitchen. Whether it's candyfloss trees, Asian tacos, or sushi served under a nitrogen sphere, every order is a work of art at this place.
This restaurant has food combinations you haven't seen before, and the best part - it tastes amazing. But you better try these unique taste experiences for yourself. You can find the Asian fusion restaurant in Valletta at this address: Old Theatre Street, Il-Belt Valletta, Malta.

Traditionelles Ftira Bread at Mekren Bakery



You can get a typical Maltese flatbread, the Ftira, for example, at Mekren Bakery. The family bakery serves traditional bread with Mediterranean fillings and vegetables. The fillings can, of course, be adapted to your taste, but if you want to try the original, you can get tuna pate, olives, capers and tomato paste in your flatbread. It's definitely worth giving the culinary dishes a chance. Why not visit the bakery in In-Nadur at 27RQ+28X, Triq Hanaq, In-Nadur, Malta? 

If you prefer to stay in Valletta the FtiraCafe also offers delicious Ftira at 37, 39 Triq l-Abate Rigord, Ta' Xbiex, Malta.
