I think the restaurant is targeting tourists. The food was ok, not great. We enjoyed the view. I wish I had read reviews before going to Rafaels, would have went elsewhere.
It's got everything needed to succeed, but still... Been there for dinner with my sweetheart, and had a salad to share for starters, pork and chicken for main. Salad has been prepared well in advance (3 seconds after the order the salad was on our table) thus the lettuce was not that crisp and cold, onions got oxidized... The pork... 更多
Went there for a light lunch. We took two salads made without the needed love. Fish washed taste was all the same. Looking great but without any flavor. Considering the high quality of raw materials in this land, seems not adequate. Very sorry to write this. But you have to improve.
The reviews of this place look very mixed and had we looked before visiting, we wouldn't have gone. Lucky for once then that we didn't! The food was actually really good. The starters are not clear from the menu but there are several dishes at starter price so you can easily choose something. We both went for the Garlic Mushrooms... 更多
Where do I begin, the location, setting and aesthetics of the place give it every chance to be a great dining spot. However, there are no starters on the menu, the bottle of water served was mucky, the calamari and chips were not fresh and looked like something out of the freezer isle, the lamb was good, but the couscous... 更多
We have been visiting Rafaels for more than 20 years now and know its nuisances well. You can get a fantastic meal here but you can also get something OK. Deserts though, you are just as well eating at one of the Gelatos around Spinola or Paceville than at raffles. NOTE! The views are to die for from this location.
The best pizza in the world and a rest of the menu is very good. Good portions at good price. Staff and the manager very polite and friendly so they can give you many info about Malta if you are there for the first time. Been visiting Malta for 3 summers and we couldn't miss going to this place for... 更多
We arrived for lunchtime drinks and sat at a table and waited and waited. I cannot comment on quality of food or drinks but as we were totally ignored by waitresses 'buzzing' about we left and went elsewhere. Very disappointing as on a previous visit our memories were good.
what a great location directly on the harbou.went Sunday lunch and then twice more in the week.Incredible value for money with quality local wine at 10 euros a bottle!!! good atmosphere with lots of Italians eating there.(close to Sicily) Can get crowded but never waited for a table
We were first attracted by the place, very cute restaurant/bar and well located. Problems started while taking the order for a wine bottle, we were recommended a bottle of Local wine, supposed to be a Chardonnay but semi-dry as the waiter said. Then came the AMAZING wine service we had : we weren't shown the bottle to confirm, it came... 更多
