“Best place on the island to see the sunset! It has a large infinity pool that looks out across the sea. As the sun goes down the lights reflect off the sea and pool creating a beautifully dramatic effect! A must for that perfect holiday photo! It boasts an array of great restaurants, great music and bars. Thursdays are sushi and Jazz nights one of my favorites. ”

“Da Pippo on Melita Street is legendary, and so popular with locals that booking is a must. Only open for lunch, they do all the Mediterranean classics, but go with what they recommend on the day. Noisy and chaotic, this is a real Valletta experience.”
