We made a reservation on 13/9/15 as we wanted a typical Maltese meal and had read many positive reviews about this restaurant on TripAdvisor. What a mistake this was. We arrived at 20:00 and our starter was not served until 21:15. A similar delay was...More

Went there twice during our one week stay in Malta. I can only recommend this little gem in St. Julian. Maltese Mama offers you a wide range of traditional Maltese (rabbit) and Italian food priced very reasonably. Although being very small but still accommodating quite...More

A more traditional Maltese place, and very popular. We arrived early, and had a nice table by the front window. We both enjoyed a pasta dish, and they were both delicious. Staff was very friendly and prices very reasonable. Highly recommend it!

We really enjoyed our meal here. We stumbled upon this restaurant as we were struggling to find something not so mainstream in the harbour of St Julian's. The restaurant seemed authentic and had a nice feel to it. We tried the Maltese pasta and a...More

Very well cooked Maltese food in the most reasonable prices in Malta. Traditional place and the plates were delicious but with little space so you have to book before

I'd arranged a boat-trip for my partner's birthday. Charles, the captain of our boat (see my review for the Malta Rib Charter) recommended Maltese Mama and we decided to give it a try. The restaurant is on the main road into Paceville, but before you...More

WOW! We were in Malta and wanted a typical Maltese meal on our first night. We wandered around and stumbled over this absolute gem! From the moment we arrived you could tell it was a warm family run restaurant. Michella, Paulnch and Paulanne all made...More

Hi Mr.Andy c I apologize for the inconvenience.I checked regarding the booking and I did not find anything under your name.Are you sure you booked to the right website? We open just for dinner so If you were calling during the day No one would be on duty to answer you.That could be the reason no one took your calls.Maybe if you tried calling after 5.30 in the evening, we would have answered immediately. When it comes to leaving a review to a restaurant you have not been to,I find that completely wrong. Myself, as a client and a manager, I would never leave a good or especially a bad review to a place I have not visited.I think that is a bit rude and shady! Please note that the address on Trip advisor is good so it would work perfectly on google maps and google earth. King regards Paulrick Spiteri I
