Location and contact

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.

Both the food and atmosphere are great in this little restaurant. The taster menu is very good value and gives a great taste of Maltese cuisine. The atmosphere with the guy playing the guitar makes for a lovely romantic evening also, definitely recommend.

A tasting menu for under €30 with up to 9 courses: to be honest, even if the food was average, that would still be great. But luckily the food is absolutely lovely. A menu taking you from pork to prawns to rabbit to quail, all...More
