I was invited for a wedding celebration which was held at the restaurant. The bridal couple decided to order a variety of their favorite dishes and i know why. Literally all dishes were superb. Starting from the croquetas and finishing with the most juicy lamb chops. These guys know what they are doing. Cant wait to be back!

Our visit to La Vida was an amazing gastronomic experience .
The meals were all artistically presented and the four dishes we shared have continued to tease our taste buds .
Alitas ,the roasted chicken wings were exquisite .
The Three Fish Cerviche was perfect in texture and sublime in taste .
Irish lamb chops were the best lamb I have eaten with the softest texture .
The roasted figs celebrated the quality and freshness of local products
Definitely a restaurant not to be missed on a visit to Malta .
Elaine and David are to be complimented for their commitment to provide the highest quality ingredients .

Thank you and look forward to another visit to La Vida

Loved our trip here - went based on the Trip Advisor reviews and it was worth it. The flaming chorizo was awesome!

Nothing to object. Sliema tends to be crowded. In the tapas bar they put (two persons) on a big table together with other guests. No problem. We enjoyed the (Spanish) atmosphere as if we had been in Spain.
Great tapas, great sangria, excellent service, so what did we want more.
Nice evening.

We visited La Vida as we were really craving some Spanish vibe and we were not disappointed.
The place is fine and has 3 tables outside so the tables are mainly indoors. For two people we ordered 5 tapas (fish tacos, pulpo, patata bravas, croquetas de sepia and garlic prawns) and 2 glasses of sangria and the bill was € 48,00. I thought it was fair because we were extremely full and all the dishes were very enjoyable (food was fresh and we'll presented)!
Amoung the tapas we ordered the best ones by far were the croquetas de sepia, the garlic prawns and the fish tacos.
I really recommend this place if you want to experience a little bit of Spain in Malta!
