The WRMC Silver Spoon Restaurants 2019

The Ultimate Award and Outstanding Quality Title bestowed on Restaurants in the Maltese Islands.



The following is a list of the outstanding restaurants that have been surveyed by the WRMC Professional Assessment Team throughout 2018, and through a minimum of three further anonymous inspections by the WRMC Professional Consultants appointed for this purpose. Assessments are adjudicated  for the whole and complete dining experience, and all survey teams must agree on the quality of all aspects  before a decision on final selections is made.

Our most important criteria for this award is, that for consideration for a WRMC Silver Spoon Award, the restaurant must have been in operation for a minimum period of at least two full years, under the same operators and the same executive chef. Further to this, evidence that the establishment is based on sound management principles and is financially sustainable is endeavored to be obtained, as the WRMC Silver Spoon Awards are not transferable with change of ownership.

The Silver Spoon Award is not a permanent accolade, as a restaurant can loose it for lack of consistency in the quality of both the cuisine and service or change of operators and concept. But then again, a restaurant can be elevated to the Two Silver Spoons Award through a major enhancement in quality performance. These restaurants have been awarded the highly coveted  WRMC One Silver Spoon Award Certificate and Silver Spoon trophy during the annual WRMC presentation dinner that is held for this purpose in January each year. 

Restaurants are inspected and adjudicated on: Ambience; Atmosphere and decor; Cleanliness; Cuisine Quality; Preparation and Presentation of dishes; Management and Servers efficiency and attitude towards clients; Overall service quality; Wine List and price mark-up; Value for Money, which criteria is targeted to cover the complete dining experience in the selected restaurants from when the inspectors enter the restaurant to the time that they leave.



The updated 2019 WRMC One Silver Spoon Restaurants are comprised of the following twenty (20) restaurants. (15 restaurants have held the title from previous years, five had the award and title withdrawn from 2018, and five new restaurants have been upgraded):

All of these restaurants have obtained a minimum of 9.0 to 9.5 points out of 10 in the combined and consolidated review results of a minimum of three professional surveys and assessments, and carefully selected from a total of 120 restaurants surveyed and shortlisted during 2018, by the WRMC appointed assessors.
