Expert review of Fumia
In an historic cellar restaurant under Valletta's Manoel Theatre - buiilt by the Knights of St John and still functioning - Fumia is famous for its seafood. Seafood of all kinds are on offer and the menu varies constantly with the season and the daily catch.
Fumia specialises in seafood in a big way. There are 14 different seafood pasta dishes on the menu - from swordfish or sea urchin to ricotta and squid ink ravioli - as well as a variety of fish and shellfish starters. For main course, as well as a few fixed items and one or two meat dishes each day, there is a choice of seasonal fresh fish. You choose your fish. They turn it into dinner.
In a tradiitonal stone cellar beneath the historic Manoel theatre, the restaurant is smart but relaxed.
The staff are helpful and generally efficient.
It's in the heart of historic Valletta.
Pasta starters are around 12-14 euros, fresh fish main courses vary a great deal as they are charged by type of fish and weight. It is worth checking the price when you order so you don't get a nasty shock at bill time. A typical three-course meal here is likely to set you back at least 50 euros a head (without drinks).
