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 ...

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.

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...
