Palazzo Preca was by far our favorite restaurant in Valletta. We made a reservation and were seated in the smaller red room with chestnut furnishing, which was very romantic and beautiful. The outside area was in white and didn't look as charming. The service was very good; the waitresses always came around to ask how we like our dishes. Their... More

Fresh whitebait, a generous portion and served with two forks so we could share. EU 8.50. The Penne Alfredo was very good, cooked correctly with a ham cream sauce. The main course portion was large and a starter size would have been fine. Rib-eye was good too. Helpful friendly staff.

We stumbled upon this superb restaurant on our arrival. We called in just on the off chance to see if they had a table for two. Right from the start they were so welcoming even though we hadn't booked. The staff were so professional and knowledgable on the dishes they serve. The food was superb and plentiful. The sea bass...

A casual conversation with a wine merchant in Valetta led to his recommendation to eat at Palazzo Preca, and we were very glad we did! We booked an early table on Sunday (@ 1845) and were impressed from the outset by the quality of table linen, glassware and cutlery. Charming and attentive staff provided a generous amuse bouche whilst we... More
