One of the best dining experiences I’ve had. Food was amazing - and all while watching the beautiful Maltese skyline. Thoroughly recommend!

Recommended by our concierge for our final evening in Valletta, this restaurant certainly didn’t disappoint. Service, food, location, all excellent. Very attentive and friendly staff, stunning views wherever seated! If you want a special night, definitely try Giannini.

Four of us has a wonderful meal at this restaurant. The food was delightful and the location stunning (4th floor) overlooking the sea and neighbouring town - well worth a visit

Probably a restaurant like that will definitely be, but you need to book like from next month while checking with them if they will open.

I can't say for sure but would expect they accept all major cards. You can always phone/email and ask them.

Description
Giannini is a family run restaurant since 1988 and is an excellent place to have lunch or dinner when visiting Valletta. The restaurant is situated above St. Michael's bastions with vast views of Manoel Island and the pretty Marsamxetto Harbour. The third floor of a typical Malta townhouse, reached by lift from the ground floor lounge bar, has been converted into a delightful restaurant. Giannini tends to be popular with locals for business lunches and romantic dinners giving it a casual but discreet atmosphere.The cuisine is a delicious blend of Mediterranean food. Fresh fish is available daily (ask the host) and you should also consider the daily specials on the board. The a la carte menu changes according to season. A rather comprehensive wine list is also available to complement the meal.
