Always happy to visit the Grotto Tavern! This is our second time dining here, and we are simply mesmerized. The environment is one for the books. You get to really relax here, and immerse in the beauty of it all. If you make a reservation, do so at the grotto itself. The rest of the restaurant is also beautifully decorated, but the grotto is the uniqueness of this place. For starters, we went for pasta. While my choice was nothing to write home about, my husband’s gnocchi were simply to die for! The fillet steaks as our mains were remarkable, as were our “imqaret bombs” for our desserts. By the end of our dinner we were stuffed, but we were too at ease to feel it! Thank you for another memorable and romantic night!
Amazing experience, with an exciting and well executed menu, fantastic service, delicious food and great wine list. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a special night in Medina/Malta, the price for the food is not so expensive for what they offer and the ambience is very unique and worth the visit. Hope to be back.
Simply spectacular. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The fit out, the atmosphere, the food, the drinks, the service. Couldn’t be any better. Really well done guys
The best food I’ve tried so far in Malta! Beautiful interiors and outstanding service. The name of the girl who was serving us is Vasilena- simply the best! Smiling, professional with big knowledge about all things in the menu. I wish there will be more restaurants like that and more waitresses like Vasilena in Malta. Will be back for sure! Keep it up!
Superb quality , ambience & staff! We’ve been at the restaurant for the very first time and one must say it’s one of a kind. The staff is very friendly & well informed. The cave is spectacular and unique. Above all the food was excellent, and perfectly cooked as requested. We Highly recommend it.
