If you want to try typical Maltese cooking you will find it here. You must love surprises because there is no menus, no big choice - Legligin is cooking and you can enjoy. In fact there is no risk, if you don't like this or that you don't take it and wait for the next dish - they serve so... More

Nice home made pasta with many varieties. You can feel when you arrive that this place is a good one. They have house specialities which look good. Service was quick as wished, nice and friendly. We will be back.

This is more than just a place for an average dinner, it is an overall dining experince. As is clear from the previous reviews, they do not have a menu from which to order, instead you just let them know whether you have any allergies or other dietary requirements; what will then follow is a (delicious) surprise. In addition to... More

This was a lovely little restaurant at the corner of a stretch of the Old Bakery Street with great restaurants along it. On a Saturday night for dinner, we were warmly greeted and sat in a charming room with the wine bar and the 'wine cellar' tucked into the wall above us. We were persuaded to go for the tasting...

Came here four years ago: standard still very high with a huge variety of immaculately prepared dishes ranging from Maltese to an international menu. Ditto with the wines.

As soon as we saw the 26€ menu on the door we thought it would be another tradition-like, low-quality tourist restaurant. However the place proved to be over expectations. The 26€ menu includes many traditional Maltese and Mediterranean dishes, including starters, soup, fish, salad and meat, scoring in both quality and quantity. The service was excellent and the personnel very... More

Found this place by chance after struggling to find somewhere open mid afternoon for a late lunch...what a find it was. We were looking for somewhere with a lovely view to sit and watch the world go by (should be simple in Valletta) and we ended up in an enchanting cave/cellar restaurant with a charming hostess who is passionate about...

Just when you think you are jaded on this island because you have seen it and done it all…you discover a place that reminds you what a lovely island Malta is. My friend wanted to go to a wine bar and have a (boring) platter. Our first choice was closed for a private function so I suggested Legligin thinking it... More

The owner chose our wine, an excellent Maltese. And the servers brought out plate after plate of tastings of exquisitely prepared local cuisine. It was a tour of Maltese cuisine all in small plates. Lots of different flavors, all good. Delightful cellar ambience in an historic Valletta house. Low prices. Only complaint was that there was too much food and... More

The local Menu Legligin offers is absolutely fantastic as well as the wines they have. The service is also really good! This place is a "must go" for everyone in Valletta!
