Since coming under new management in the last couple of years, L-Ankra has steadily gained a reputation for quality dishes served within an amiable and professional atmosphere. All in all, this is a fine dining experience at reasonable prices. The interior works towards a classy yet unpretentious ambiance, whilst the menu focuses on local fish and fresh pasta dishes including traditional Maltese ravioli served with a twist, and a noteworthy sea-food risotto. A fine choice of wines are always available, and so are an array of homemade desserts to top it all off.

Located in a house on the village square of the small rural village of Qala, Ta’ Vestru is a small family run restaurant serving generous portions of traditional Maltese food and an array of international crowd pleasers for the less adventurous. Food at this establishment may take a while to leave the kitchen, yet this should only put guests’ mind to rest as to the authenticity of its preparation. Seafood pasta dishes, rabbit stew, and the lamb are particularly noteworthy. The size of the portions cannot be overemphasized enough, making for good value for money.
