We were sat at the beach bar at Paranga, brilliant views and really good cocktails and food available. Nobody disturbs you and tries to sell you random things as people do on other beaches. Chairs and loungers available.

Paranga has a great location with outstanding views. As it was winter we were unable to make the most of the view as it was dark. That being said it’s still a nice view. The food options will keep everyone happy. For Malta the restaurant...More

Difficult to find fault with Paranga. Excellent service, food, ambiance. It could be less expensive but couldn't everywhere?

Paranga is the hotel's seaside restaurant, set on teak decking adjacent to the rippling Mediterranean Sea. Here one is certain to find and an enticing and exclusive atmosphere where the centre of attention is the pristine and unspoiled natural flavour of the cuisine. Chef de Cuisine Claudio Farrugia presents a menu characterised by superb array of stimulating and diverse Sicilian flavours interpreted in both a traditional and contemporary style. Fresh fish and shellfish arrive daily from local fishermen, creating, with certainty, a peak of individual interest or the ideal fare for a special occasion. All of which may be enjoyed with an ideally selected and impeccably paired wine, aperitif or digestif.
