Like Brexit, we prefer romance to remain, especially when we’re surrounded by Tinder ‘dates’ which you can savagely get quicker than a pizza delivery.
Whatever the occasion, whether you want to impress, go for a date night, a soiree away from the kids, an anniversary, birthday of an S.O (you get our drift)… here are the official most romantic restaurants as voted by The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Guide to Restaurants in Malta & Gozo 2019.
So have that unapologetically vom evening in style at these places:
1. Palazzo Preca Restaurant, Valletta (The Winner).
A stunning gem that has been as awarded the winner for the most romantic restaurant and we can see why.
With its super sleek yet cosy interiors, extensive wine list and sexy cuisine, it’d be hard not to get in the mood after dining there with your significant other or date.
If you want to continue ticking off the list of romantic restaurants one by one, have an unapologetically vom evening in style at these 11 other places:
2. Tarragon, St Paul’s Bay
With stunning views, first class award-winning cuisine, tasting menus to die for, it is no surprise that Tarragon is an institution not only for fine dining, but for romance.
3. Bacchus, Mdina
Bacchus is definitely the place to be for a lovey dovey dining experience. The setting is charming and historical within the medieval fortification of Mdina.
Shall we go back to my place for coffee?
4. 59 Republic, Valletta
Not only were they in the top 40 out of over 1800 restaurants in Malta & Gozo by the Definitive(ly) Good Guide, but they were the fourth runners up in the most romantic joint category.
No surprise there, thanks to the lavish interior design, modern yet classy menu and the staff attending to every need.
5. Root 81, Rabat
The jaw-dropping views alone makes it the perfect setting to want to get kiss kissy. Mix that with the top notch service and exquisite cuisine… then you got it in the bag!
6. Blue Elephant, St Julian’s
Jungle like surroundings, sights, sounds & smells of Thailand plus ponds, it is no wonder why Blue Elephant is always on the list for special occasions linked with L.O.V.E (or lust).
7. Grotto Tavern, Rabat
Who wouldn’t want to get glammed up and dine in a cave like typical Maltese house of character with all its original features?
The welcoming and cosy ambience makes it the perfect place for an Instagram #aboutlastnight date post.
8. The de Mondion Restaurant, Mdina
Pretty surprised that it was eight on the list but it is a superb achievement nonetheless.
This superb restaurant has everything you need for the perfect romantic evening. The views, beautiful menus, service and the attention to deets are all on point.
9. Capo Crudo, Valletta
Capo Crudo is exceptional and we mean exceptional. Go there for a romantic AF lunch on Saturday with their new 25.00 six course tasting menu or go there in the evenings for an equally superb experience.
Sit by the window to be next to the sea!
10. Caviar & Bull, St Julian’s
Caviar & Bull (hopefully) needs no introduction. This Maltese institution is so popular with tourists and locals alike.
Grab the bull by the horns and go there for what is guaranteed to be a charming eying with a sensual setting.
11. Giuseppi’s Bar & Bistro, Naxxar
Giuseppi sure knows how to set the tone for a day or night meal filled with passion. There won’t be any need for awkward silences here as there will be plenty ice-breaking topics that you’ll be surrounded by.
12. The Lord Nelson, Mosta
Recognised this year as one of the industry’s finest restaurants (deservingly so) thank the Lord for this romance-inducing restaurant.
You’ll find everything you need for a soiree with your significant other that you can show off on social media.
