Owner/staff went out of their way to make our experience special. You don't get a menu but just put your trust in the restaurant to deliver plate after plate of really tasty 'tapas style' dishes. (They will cater for any dietary requirements, vegetarian, coeliac etc...)....More

After reading reviews, decided to eat here. Made a reservation - this is essential, otherwise, you won't get a seat. The waiter amusingly described the restaurant as a "concept restaurant". I suspect it might mean something different in translation - essentially, whatever the chef "conceives...More

What a gem is Leglilin restaurant! No need to choose your food, just follow the menu of the day. We asked for wines to accompany the dishes, because the wine list was so long, we didn't know where to start. Both the food and the...More

Hi Yanika, When we were at Legligin, the restaurant did not have an a-la-carte menu. Instead there is a fixed menu, which may or may not change each day, for a fixed price. They do ask every person if there are special... More

The quaint wine bar in Strada Sta Lucia in Valletta where the good flowing wine is exalted by Chris' unique culinary delights. Legligin is a concept restaurant and wine bar. Our €26 per person tasting menu includes Maltese and other Mediterranean dishes. There is no a la carte menu... Just sit back, relax, and let us feed you, the Legligin way. Open every day from 1 pm till late.
