Food and drink

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.   

Ambience

In a tradiitonal stone cellar beneath the historic Manoel theatre, the restaurant is smart but relaxed.

Service

The staff are helpful and generally efficient.

Location

It's in the heart of historic Valletta.

Price advice

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).
