The Michelin Guide to Malta 2021 has just dropped and two new restaurants have been awarded a prestigious Michelin Star, bringing the country’s total number of Michelin Starred restaurants to five.
Bahia, a charming bistro in Lija, and Ion – The Harbour in Valletta are the latest to get their hands on the illustrious Michelin Star.
Both restaurants champion the best produce available from local farmers and fishermen, with regularly updated menus.
These restaurants join existing One Star restaurants De Mondion, Noni and Under Grain. The three existing Bib Gourmand restaurants all retained their award for ‘good quality, good value cooking’ for another year: Terrone, Commando and Rubino.
Five restaurants have been added to the list, which highlights restaurants where you’ll experience “fresh ingredients, capably prepared; simply a good meal”. The restaurants awarded are The Fork and Cork in Rabat; Chophouse and Fernandõ Gastrotheque, both in Sliema; Zest in St Julian’s; and Mezzodi in Valletta
