WRMC Special concept Munches.-w800-h600

Special Concept, Casual and Family restaurants, are those establishments at which one can enjoy an informal meal at any time of the day, from pizza to pasta, from a salad to hot main course. The majority of the 1500 registered and licensed restaurants in Malta fall under this category. As for every other category there are average, above average and good outlets, but it is our policy to publish only those establishments that are really beyond  above average standard, and not merely to create a list.

We have reviewed several of these outlets during the course of 2016, and shall of course continue to pick some of the better ones, not only for our own casual enjoyment but also to bring some selected outlets to your attention. Don’t expect silver service, or haute’ cuisine, but of course one looks forward to a decent meal, good portions with good quality food, fresh ingredients and value for money.

 The Following ten restaurants have been conferred with the “2017 – WRMC 10 Best Special Concept and  Casual Dining Restaurants in the Maltese Islands”  award during the WRMC-Malta Restaurants Awards Presentation dinner, on the 23rd of January 2017.
