December 7, 2012
 



Dinner at The Villa, St. Julians on Tuesday, 27th November, 2012.  Nicely executed dishes, with quality and fresh ingredients. Four persons in group, each ordering different dishes to test the versatility of the Chefs. We were not disappointed as each dish was well prepared and presented with very good cuisine.   Average price for the dinner (4 persons) as shown in the following photos was  Eur45 per person, which included one bottle of Beoujolais Nouveau 2012, two bottles of water and espressos, plus complimentary Meridiana liqueurs.    Good value and very good, attentive service, with quality cuisine and presentations. Fine dining in a casual atmosphere.         Starters: Pappardelle with Chorizo Sausages; Rabbit Livers; Fresh Tomato and mussels soup; Raviolacci di Carciofo.     Main Courses: Grilled Irish Beef  Rib-eye; Pan-frid Quail;  Chicken S...

Family Sunday Lunch at the Oceana Restaurant, Hilton Malta - November, 2012. There is no doubt about it that one of our favourite, Sunday lunch haunts, especially once the new buffet season starts in earnest every October, is The Oceana at the Hilton Malta, and by the end of the season, sometime at the beginning of June, we would have visited this venue several times, apart from the odd special occasion lunch as on Mothers Day, Easter, Christmas or New Year's Day lunch, which we also like to spread, to other selected establishments as well. The Oceana, under the direction of the Hilton Malta's Executive Chef Joe Vella's direction has always, year after year after year, proved to be the model of consistency in top quality, offering diverse cuisine stations which might also be themed (Italian, German, Asian etc). The Oceana is located on the same floor area as the pools and garden, with clear views through the large, glass panes,  ...

Tartarun Restaurant at Marsaxlokk.

Reviewed on two occasions in July and November, 2012. Re-Reviewed in March, 2013. Tartarun is a "WRMC Silver Spoon Restaurant".   Dinners at Tartarun, Restaurant, Lounge & Wine bar.   The history of the present Tartarun Restaurant in Marsaxlokk goes back a long way. It was originally opened and run by the Schiavone family as Harbour Lights Restaurant (circa 1980's/1990's) and it was one of the first, main three typically fish and seafood restaurants in this locality. The others were at that time the old version of Ir-Rizzu Restaurant (since then enlarged and commercialized beyond its original concept), and the old Skuna Restaurant (long gone and closed).   In recent years Marsaxlokk has become a mecca for fish restaurants, resulting in everyone that owned a house on Triq Is-Sajjieda wanted, or want, to open a restaurant. Harbour Lights continued to operate under this name until some three years ...

The Tabloid at the Palace Hotel, Sliema

  Family Sunday Lunch at The Tabloid Restaurant, The Palace Hotel, Sliema,  November, 2012. We have been reviewing the Sunday buffet lunch at The Tabloid, year after year for over three concurrent years, as well as we have been to this place for special occasion lunches, since it opened its doors. It is one of those establishments at which cuisine quality, level of service, freshness of ingredients, attentive preparation and presentation have been exceptionally consistent on a high level throughout. As in previous years, this season's offerings presented an exciting and enjoyable dining experience, that would invariably delight the most discerning diner. The Tabloid's Sunday buffet lunch, initially started off with the lunch and cuisine displays being all set in the actual restaurant section as one enters from the lobby, but due to massive demand in recent years, the table arrangements were set-up at The Tabloid main sectio...
