  July: Dinner at Tartarun Restaurant – Marsaxlokk. Saturday, 30th July, 2016. Tartarun Restaurant is one of our regular dining-out establishments, and one which has since opening up some years ago under this name , established itself as one of the leading fish and seafood restaurants in Malta. Family run by the Schiavone family, with all members playing an active part in its operation, although sometimes James the Executive Chef, and Stephen the Restaurant/s Manager having to play double roles to run both Tartarun at Marsaxlokk as well as Wejla at Smart City. The main requirement to be able to do this successfully, is to have two excellent teams both in the kitchen as well as front-of-house  which can be deployed in either restaurant as the need would arise. On our visit last Saturday, Stephen was running front-of-house, and the kitchen was in the hands of Chef Daniel Saliba. Both performed admirably in a somewhat de...

Sotto Mare Ristorante – Marsaxlokk

 
 
 
 
 
 
May 10, 2016
 



Gourmet degustation dinner at:  Ristorante Sotto Mare – Marsaxlokk. Friday, 8th April, 2016. Over the last months, we have attended and participated as normal guests,  in a number of gourmet, exhibition degustation dinners such as:  that organized for the Gout de France;  wine-food pairing dinners at various restaurants; as well as for the launching of new menus; new items; experimental dishes and so forth, created by different Chefs. One observation that I have made is, that over the last one or two years or so, fine dining has evolved and developed to very high levels by a few top chefs in Malta, in various locations, and not restricted to the odd, one or two places. Gone are the days, that to experience top class presentations and exquisite food preparations, one had to go overseas, with all the hassle and expense that that might entail.   Fine dining as we know it, has now moved to a few, establishments around Malta at whic...

Buddhamann Asian Fusion Restaurant. Dinner – Saturday, 19th December, 2015 Buddhamann is an Asian fusion restaurant combining aromas, tastes, flavours and quality ingredients of the Far East, Indian, Chinese and Japanese, with those of the finest European style menus. The establishment offers an exceptional experience in food preparation that should go down very well with diners adventurous enough to go for well,  known dishes, but having a twist in the preparation, presentation and most important of all taste. The menu is inscribed on a double side wooden board which at first glance looks like any other Asian menu for the starters and more so for the main courses for which headings are a typical European style menu, but when one reads the small descriptive print after each item, it all starts to make sense of what the Chef actually wishes to convey. But then again, as the saying goes, the proof of the pudding is in the eating...
