Dinner at SaReGaMa Indian Restaurant - Fortina Tigne. Sunday, 8th November, 2015.

Round-Up of Restaurants visited in October, 2015

Round-Up of Restaurants visited in October, 2015.  Dinner at The Villa Brasserie - St. Julian's. Thursday, 1st October, 2015. We've been to The Villa Brasserie on various occasions in the last five years since this place was taken over by Chef Chris Hammet, and it has become established as one of the more frequented places especially with visiting food lovers to our Island. For a Thursday evening, in which a full scale storm was in progress, this place was full of patrons enjoying the food and a good bottle of wine inside the cosy atmosphere of the restaurant. An advantage of this place is that parking is a cinch in the adjoining hotel parking which takes you right to the door of the restaurant without having to venture out in the rain. Parking is free for diners in any case. Seated at our reserved table, ordered a glass of Prosecco to wind down after negotiating the flooded roads from Marsascala to St.Julians. Ordered tw...

Dinner at Commando Restaurant, Mellieha. Saturday, 19th September, 2015. This year we have visited a good number of restaurants around Malta and Gozo, some which we would have visited before, and others that we would have decided to give a try, probably because they would have been newly opened, or even long established which might have been refurbished, re-organised, changed owners or chefs, or whatever. Having said this, and through our sheer experience of the holistic , local restaurant industry, comprising of: restaurants, operators, chefs, restaurant and front-of-house managers, food and beverage managers, locations, seasonality, supply sources, etc., one tends to build a resume' of restaurants that are consistent year-in year-out in quality cuisine and service, and the best chefs who always come out with that particular individual creativity in food preparation and presentation, with an emphasis on what is seasonal, local ...
