A small restaurant, in the middle of Valletta but easy to miss, offering a wonderful tasting menu of many courses (I lost count!). The multi-national staff were efficient and friendly, explaining each dish as they served it. We highly recommend a visit, but book ahead...More

Before we went to Malta, many people told me that the food scene there left a lot to be desired. In general, I can see why. Food is focused and centered around hotels and resorts. If you want a great dining experience, you need to...More

I have to say that Malta in general in terms of food was a disappointment considering it is a Mediterranean country.. Legligin was suggested by several people and bear in mind you need a reservation. Great atmosphere and good wine selection. Service was slow but...More

The food is good but definitely not a place for fine dining. The staff is very helpful and they have a very good wine list. Nice atmosphere.

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.
