Scoglitti Restaurant – Valletta. Sunday lunch – 19th March, 2017.     Scoglitti Restaurant has been on the cards for a visit since it opened some three years ago. Situated in Boat Street, Valletta, underneath the bastions on the Marsamxett Harbour side, and directly facing Sliema across the harbour. Easy to be reached by ferry from Sliema as it stops directly alongside the restaurant a few metres away, as well as by car through Great Siege Road, Floriana or Marsamxett Road, Valletta.

Capo Crudo Restaurant – Marsamxett, Valletta. Dinner – Friday, 17th February, 2017. It has been long in coming, but now that Capo Crudo Restaurant in Boat Street, Valletta, has been officially launched about a week ago, it has taken Valletta’s fine dining scene by storm. Fully booked day-in day out, in the few days that it has been operating, this restaurant has already attracted the attention of a large number of fine dining clientele. Operated on the ground by Chef-Director Marvin Schembri and director Keith Seychell the place is bound to be a success throughout. A good kitchen team under the direction of Marvin Schembri with Sous Chefs Robert Saccasan and Patrizio Cassar is in place as well as a very good service team and sommelier service. The restaurant is divided in open plan sections where on entering one enters the cocktail bar and lounge, from which one moves to the main restaurant; on one side the open kitchen is ...
