Had an amazing lunch at Paranga! Service and food were simply amazing. All dishes were beautifully presented and the seafood and fish were to die for! Highly recommended.

Beautifully set on the seafront f Malta, the atmosphere and impeccable service are undoubtedly the positives. Unfortunately the seafood dishes lack creativity and are certainly taste wise, average. My upset stomach the next day leads me to be concerned about freshness. I wish for the staff, I could have a better review.

Our first night meal was at this beautiful restaurant, which is part of the Intercontinental Hotel, a mere 100yds away. Situated on the bay area, with wonderful views across the water, the place straight away delivers the right location for a great meal. The staff were attentive and friendly, and everything now rests upon the meal itself. No disappointment. I... More

Many friends suggested to visit this place in order to find fresh and goof fish (not so common in Malta). I must admit they where right. The environment and the atmosphere is wonderful, as well the quality of starters and main courses.

We ordered as starters Fresh Mussels with white wine sauce and Fresh marinated Prawns. As main courses my girlfriend had "Rombo alla Mugniaia" and myself a Grilled beef rib eye Black Angus of...

This is part of the Intercontinental Hotel Group. Separate from the hotel itself but a very short walk away. It lies on the small St George's Bay and has tables overlooking the sea. It specialises in seafood and fish and is a terrific place to eat. Excellent value for money, in the upper range of prices in the area but... More

This restaurant belongs to the intercontinental hotel and it is on the water at the private beach of the hotel. Nice and gourmet with many choices. We found it a bit expensive but iy worth the money! Make a reservation before you go!

Description
Paranga is the hotel's seaside restaurant, set on teak decking adjacent to the rippling Mediterranean Sea. Here one is certain to find and an enticing and exclusive atmosphere where the centre of attention is the pristine and unspoiled natural flavour of the cuisine. Chef de Cuisine Claudio Farrugia presents a menu characterised by superb array of stimulating and diverse Sicilian flavours interpreted in both a traditional and contemporary style. Fresh fish and shellfish arrive daily from local fishermen, creating, with certainty, a peak of individual interest or the ideal fare for a special occasion. All of which may be enjoyed with an ideally selected and impeccably paired wine, aperitif or digestif.
