Stunning place, incredible atmosphere and very relaxing. Staff and service is very professional and helpful. This is fine dining at its best and worth every penny. Very recommended… Serving staff was very friendly, food was delicious with a pleasant presentation. Price was slightly on the high side, but for those who appreciate fine dining it is worth the money… We went here on new years eve for the taster menu. The food was fantastic and the staff were amazing. We had our five year old with us and they made her feel like a princess. We had a wonderful night and can’t recommend it enough… Great location and the most wonderful food. The service was fabulous they were so friendly but not fussy. The food was presented beautifully and we will definitely go again many thanks for a lovely evening…

Restaurant Name: Hammetts Macina Restaurant
Restaurant Description: Unimaginable history seeps from the Maċina’s ancient walls. Built almost half a millennium ago by the Knights of Saint John, the Maċina has been a landmark for centuries, now hosting Hammett’s Maċina Restaurant. Drawing on this history, the gastronomical concept is a take on the islands’ succession of powers with a modern representation of traditional Mediterranean culinary influences that date back to the Phoenician times. Like the Maltese language itself, the menu is a taste of history derived from the island’s Mediterranean-semitic roots, with a contemporary twist, created using only the finest local, seasonal produce. The menu is constructed by a multi-award winning team, led by talented Francisco Carrasco Cortes and directed by 24-time award winning Chef and restaurateur Chris Hammett

Brilliant opening night. The restaurant is situated in a prime location and has a very modern vibe. The ambiance is very soothing due to the soft lighting and subtle music playing in the background. The restaurant is also very spacious, and the booth setup was very comfortable. The menu is varied and innovative as it introduces a new concept of dining. The food was excellently prepared and plated perfectly. Drinks were also well-prepared, and the service was impeccable, with excellent manners. Overall a wonderful experience.
Very friendly and professional staff. They work with small portions to share. We had approximately 2 portions per person and it was more than enough. Every each of them was delicious and super tasty. The pistachio foundant dessert was just amazing. I would recommend 200%.
What a lovely evening. The five course tasting menu was excellent. Nothing to complain. Only the bottle of red wine came to late with the lamb. The rest of the service was very good. Friendly service, and the food was really delicious. Good wine list also.
Brilliant tasting amazing food. Tastebuds were excited and thrilled with every bite. Presentation was a portrait on a plate. Staff were very attentive to our needs. Great place for my birthday celebration.
This restaurant is a great spot for any occasion. Premium dishes with exceptional staff. Couldn’t ask for more, especially manage Eva who looked after our table. I can definitely recommend this for any occasion, from business meeting to family gathering.
