Best for Trendiness - Expert review of 2 22

A feat of modern architecture in an historic setting – with food and drink.

Modern food and contemporary design in a 16th-century bastion wall.

Food and drink: 

It has a small menu of nouvelle-cuisine style meat and fish – but with larger than nouvelle cuisine portions. The food is good but not special. I’d come here mostly for the bar (wine, cocktails etc) and the architectural experience.

Ambience: 

It has a contemporary glass, grey, black and white minimalist decor within the centuries-old walls of Valletta. The upstairs bar is lit by a screen of changing pictures of historic Malta, particularly the capital, nicely marrying the very contemporary ambience with the definitely historic location. This is reversible architecture at its best; the whole restaurant could be removed and the ancient walls remain undamaged. There is a small outside terrace, which is fun for a drink with views of the fortifications but a bit close to the main road for eating.

Service: 

The service is fine and unremarkable.

Location: 

Built into the bastion walls of Valletta on the Marsamxett Harbour side, the entrance is from outside the walls of the city.

Price advice: 

Pizzas from 5.75 euros, and mains around 15 euros.
