I'm so surprised reading some comments about complainings because they don't keep the tables when you arrive late or you find out there is not a menu to choose plates. If you are this type of people, definitely this is not your place. Legligin is...More

A lovely old style restaurant that has a set 9 course taster menu. Lovely people who explained the food, made dietary adjustments and recommended excellent wine to our taste. The food was consistently excellent - albeit ultimately too much. The rabbit is the last course...More

Went to try the tasting menu - or rather - the tasting no menu - since dishes are simply brought to you based on the daily catch/buy in. There is a level of trust - all of it rewarded. The food is terrific - some...More

Never knew this tiny place existed until a friend made the reservation. The concept is great - traditional Maltese food served degustation style. The food is fantastic and service was brilliant too. Absolutely loved it - thank you!

Hi Yanika, When we were at Legligin, the restaurant did not have an a-la-carte menu. Instead there is a fixed menu, which may or may not change each day, for a fixed price. They do ask every person if there are special... More

The quaint wine bar in Strada Sta Lucia in Valletta where the good flowing wine is exalted by Chris' unique culinary delights. Legligin is a concept restaurant and wine bar. Our €26 per person tasting menu includes Maltese and other Mediterranean dishes. There is no a la carte menu... Just sit back, relax, and let us feed you, the Legligin way. Open every day from 1 pm till late.
