A guide to food and drink in St Paul's Bay
Meals out in Malta are usually accompanied by stunning views, and the northern region of St Paul’s Bay is no different. Settle in to one of many family-friendly restaurants and enjoy fresh seafood with a contemporary twist.
Exploring St Pauls delicacies
The cuisine you’ll find on Malta holidays is an eclectic mix, focused on Mediterranean flavours, guided by the island’s seasonal produce and topped off with an abundance of freshly caught seafood.
Look out for Lampuki Pie — a traditional Maltese fish pie that remains incredibly popular on the island. Rabbit Stew, beef olives and a Maltese version of ratatouille, known as Kapunata, are also easy to find here. Think Meditterranean food with a twist.
A feast for the eyes at Tarragon
Presentation is just as important as taste at Tarragon. Located right on the waterfront, this restaurant offers stunning views over the bay and is the ideal venue for couples looking to spend a romantic evening in a traditional Maltese setting. The staff here are particularly welcoming and willing to listen to customer requests.
Guests can experience fine dining with a twist, as locally caught sea bass with a rock salt crust is prepared at your table in extravagant style. Make sure you leave room for dessert though, as the melting dark chocolate sphere really is something to behold.
Dinner with a view at Dine 33
The finest flavours of Malta are brought together in style at Dine 33, where guests are invited to sit back, relax and enjoy a range of classic dishes – from succulent ribeye steaks to freshly prepared sea urchin linguini. There’s even a spectacular tasting menu that is sure to make the decision process a whole lot easier.
The views over the bay alone make a visit to Dine 33 well worth it. Watch the sun set over the harbour as you unwind in this inviting restaurant, furnished with modern decor and floor to ceiling windows that really make the most of its stunning location.
A taste of home at The Corner Cafe
With fry ups that rival those that are served at home, The Corner Cafe is the place to go for a breakfast to remember in St Paul’s Bay. The portions here are large, with eggs, sausages and bacon served alongside pots of hot tea. Even if you’re not in the mood for a big breakfast, you can try one of The Corner Cafe’s famous wraps instead.
The atmosphere here is famously laid-back, boasting all the charm of a traditional Irish cafe. With free Wi-Fi and speedy service to boot, mornings spent at The Corner Cafe are always a treat.
Seafood delights at Da Rosi Ristorante
Da Rosi Ristorante serves some of the best seafood that the area has to offer, with everything from octopus to freshly caught mussels on the menu. The mixed shellfish platter is a particular favourite, adding prawns and oysters to the mix for a true taste of the deep.
The atmosphere is warm and friendly here, making it the perfect location for a special occasion. There’s even the option to choose fresh fish from the window that will then be cooked and brought to your table, making the exceptional service feel even more personalised.
Traditional Italian favourites at Damiano's
Damiano’s is one of many Italian restaurants that can be found in St Paul’s Bay, serving traditional style pizzas with a huge variety of toppings. Choose from a wide range of meat and fish options, or play it safe with a traditional margherita – prepared in true Italian style.
Locally caught seafood makes up the rest of the menu here and is usually paired with pastas cooked in traditional sauces. Like many of the restaurants in St Paul’s Bay, the views are spectacular and it’s a great location to sit back, relax and enjoy views over the harbour.
