Four of us dined here one evening during our stay in Vittoriosa Birgu. We were not disappointed. A meze of local dishes was presented to us before we chose our main course from a limited menu but one that suited all tastes. The wine that we chose was excellent and the service was attentive. We would have gone back on another night but they were fully booked. Well worth a visit.

We really enjoyed the evening at Tal-Petut. The food was awesome and there was a lot of things to eat. You have to know that you can just have that one menu, choosing only the meat.
It isn't really cheap for maltese standards, but absolutely recommendable!

Very cosy small restaurant with delicious food and a very friendly service. Everything was freshly prepared and especially the starters were the hit.
Strongly recommend to reserve a table in advance.

If you want to taste the old traditional culinary local food, ( not the fancy stuff ) but the true food recipes of our ancestors, this is the place.

This place came recommended from all corners - trip advisor, lonely planet, AA guide and locals alike, so we knew we had to go and see what the fuss was about. It was a little hard to find, hidden behind the inquisitors palace, but we got there and were greeted by Donald, the charming, laid-back and wholly welcoming owner and host. His passion for the fresh, locally produced food he serves just shone out of him, and you can't help be swept up in the joy of an experience like that when you sense the passion someone has for what they do.

We were served a mixed antipasti to start, vegetables, dips, bread, olives and sausage, all of which was heavenly, and then based on our preferences Donald recommended some local wines (we tried both white and red) and main courses of pork-wrapped rooster thigh and local fish. The main courses were mercifully sized sensibly given our gluttony over the antipasti, but completely delicious and we cleaned our plates.

Just when we thought we could fit no more food in, we were presented by a trio of maltese desserts - again mercifully small but the perfect end to a divine feast! We completed the meal with some delicious pomegranate maltese liqueur; everything from start to finish was perfect.

A fantastic experience - seek this place out!
