The Phoenix Restaurant

Our stunning main dining room, inspired by the grand cafés of Europe. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Phoenix restaurant serves breakfast and dinner daily and brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. We offer à la carte and a buffet breakfast as well as special event menus. We serve an eclectic mix of dishes taking inspiration from both traditional Maltese and European flavours. Our Executive Chef Daniel takes full advantage of the daily catch and our menu often features fresh fish of the day.

Our Terrace is the place to be seen in the heart of Valletta. As long as the weather is on our side, the Terrace is open year round. Phoenix is open for breakfast from 07:00 to 10:30 and for dinner from 19:00 to 22:00. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 to 15:00.

For dinner, gentlemen are requested to wear trousers, collar shirt and closed shoes.
