Experience the best of Maltese hospitality at The Phoenicia’s incredible restaurant and bar spaces

One of Malta’s most loved dining destinations, we really are passionate about food. Our award-winning chefs use local produce, much of it grown in our Kitchen Gardens, and then lovingly prepared with care and creativity to ensure every mouthful is memorable. Exquisite menus aim to surprise without sacrificing their genuine Mediterranean essence. Each is carefully curated to balance delicious flavours with colour, texture and inventiveness.


Elegant and chic decor paired with delicious, unforgettable dishes

The chic colonial décor combines wooden ceiling fans, ornamental chandeliers and beautiful flower arrangements. The superbly spacious outdoor terrace affords spectacular panoramic views overlooking landscaped gardens, historic bastions and the Marsamxett harbour. Expect exceptional service, a refined atmosphere and an extraordinary menu. Our Executive Chef Daniel Debattista, who trained under Andrew Fairley at Gleneagles, takes full advantage of the wonderful island produce, always incorporating the freshest, local ingredients.

Open daily for breakfast from 07:00 – 10:30.

A stylish favourite, designed to be enjoyed with friends and family

A café with a twist with its mouth-watering menu and farm-to-table mindset, uses local ingredients wherever possible. Whether it is our carpaccio with local tomatoes, grilled calamari, mushroom risotto or the all-time favourite beef burger, every dish has been thoughtfully created to express the best possible flavours. Be it coffee or a glass of Prosecco, a working lunch or a relaxed dinner, sit back on the terrace enjoying the views over the Triton Square, and watch the world go by.
