The Phoenicia Malta team will be wrapping up the year with more awards, after Phoenix clinched the Top Food award in last night’s Definitive(ly) Good Guide Awards. Furthermore, the hotel’s main restaurant is also a finalist for ‘Best Ambience’ and ‘Best Service’. In fact, the restaurant placed no.2 overall, with only Michelin-starred de Mondion ranking higher.

The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Awards are the island’s most popular culinary awards. The winning restaurants were selected following a survey in which 4,143 people participated. Besides the Top 40 Restaurants awards, where Phoenix rated no. 2 overall, the evening included additional awards in different categories, such as ‘Top Food’, ‘Most Popular Pet-Friendly Restaurant, ‘Most Popular Café’, and more. Head Chef Daniel Debattista and his team’s efforts have secured the no. 1 spot for ‘Top Food’, whereas the service team’s world-class care and the restaurant’s unique setting clearly left an impression on many diners, having also rated no.3 for both ‘Best Ambience’ and ‘Best Service’.

The hotel’s poolside restaurant, Bastion Bar & Restaurant, also featured in the awards, ranking among the island’s top 20 restaurants. Another fantastic achievement for the team, especially since this restaurant is only open during the warmer seasons. 

We would like to take a moment to acknowledge our team members for their hard work and dedication. We are incredibly proud of our Phoenicia family for delivering exceptional guest experiences through their perseverance and commitment. Indeed, throughout the team there is a thirst for excellence, for improving and for achieving more. This thirst is what delivers results, and the management team and owner are incredibly proud of what the team have been able to achieve in recent years. In fact, The Phoenicia Malta will soon unveil new offerings, which will undoubtedly create even more wonderful experiences for its patrons. Watch this space!
