Date night is always special. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been together for two weeks, two decades, or are anxiously stepping out for your first date - choosing the right setting for your romantic rendez-vous is an absolute must. Now Malta might be small in size, but make no mistake - this little island is big on food! Without further ado, here are 5 restaurants in Malta to get you started on the way your perfect date.
1. Rebekah’s, Mellieħa
Head up to the picturesque north of Malta and enjoy an evening of first-class Mediterranean cuisine and stellar service at Rebekah’s, a restaurant brimming with rustic local charm. For that extra hint of magic, try to get a table outside, in the courtyard, to make the most of those warm summer nights.
2. Trattoria Da Pippo, Valletta
Nestled in one of Valletta’s many side streets, you’ll find the brightly-coloured entrance to Trattoria da Pippo, a bustling, cheerful restaurant serving up some of the freshest Italian food on the island. This gem of a restaurant is perfect for a daytime date!
3. Del Borgo, Birgu
This wine bar and restaurant are located in typically-Maltese Birgu (one of the historic Three Cities), hidden away in one of its many narrow streets. Just minutes away from the waterfront, the ambience at Del Borgo is perfect for that quiet, intimate night out - and the candlelight is a pretty nice touch, too.
4. Terrone, Marsaxlokk
The south of Malta is simply idyllic, especially during the summer months. Terrone is an adorable restaurant right by the sea in Marsaxlokk, a sleepy fishing village with some of the most incredible seafood on offer.
5. Cellini Wine Bar, Naxxar
For a fantastic night out away from the hustle and bustle of St. Julian’s and Sliema, had over to Cellini in Naxxar, right next to the impressive parish church, and indulge in some wine and a cheeky platter with your someone special.
