If you love everything about the sea, good food and exceptional views, then this Qawra marine-themed restaurant should most definitely be on your radar.
Although it’s impossible to dine under the sea (unless you head over to the Maldives), La Nave comes pretty bloody close.
Tantalisingly close to the sea, La Nave boasts epic panoramic views of St. Paul’s Islands, Comino and Gozo, some of the most beautiful scenery in Malta.
Yes, we know that here in Malta we aren’t lacking in restaurants with sea views (you’ve got to love the perks of being an islander), but what’s different about La Nave is its chic sea-inspired cuisine and interior design, with fish sculptures adorning the ceiling fit to make you feel like you’ve been transported into an underwater oasis.
On the menu, you’ll find fresh Mediterranean fare such as mussels, bruschetta and fresh soups for starters.
Mains include a plethora of burgers, fresh fish (such as pan-fried swordfish and a seafood stew), pasta dishes, salads and steaks.
Spit-roasted whole baby chicken, hickory pork ribs and a local pork fillet make up some of the menu’s house signatures.
There is quite literally someone for everyone!
Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that it’s inside the Malta National Aquarium Complex
Because there’s great lunches with crazy sea views, then there’s a whole nautical day-out.
Malta’s 20,000 square metre aquarium is truly one of a kind, boasting over 41 tanks housing fish from the Pacific Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. There is a shark tank, a jellyfish aquarium and an area for reptiles and amphibians… and it’s all a few paces away from La Nave!
The restaurant is extremely child-friendly, making it the perfect destination for a family meal before or after a visit to the aquarium. If you’re looking for an alternative date night, do something a tad less clichéd by exploring the beauty of the aquarium before going for a long lunch or dinner.
Plus you can totally do it for the gram and take a pic in the aquarium tunnel. It’s the closest you’re going to get to actually being in the Little Mermaid, and we love it!
If this all sounds great, get ready; one lucky winner could win a yummy dinner for two at La Nave Bistro and a whole year’s family membership to the Aquarium!
Yep, you read that right. You can dine with one of your loved ones at La Nave and enjoy a delectable Mediterranean feast for the evening.
We’re also giving away a whole year’s family membership to the Aquarium, which is two adults and two children going in to the beautiful Qawra attraction for a whole year, for free.
