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.

My Husband, myself and our 4 boys (age 11-15) ate here on the last day of our holiday in Malta. No booking and on a beautiful Sunday afternoon! Firstly the setting was beautiful, overlooking the bay in the sunshine. The restaurant itself was clean and service was very good. The prawn starter was wonderful, huge prawns. My husband chose a fresh lobster and was given various ways for it to be cooked, it looked and tasted fantastic. I had a steak which again was lovely. Drinks service was very good also. After dinner I could easily have sat there for the afternoon enjoying the view with one of the cocktails they make. It is certainly not cheap, but we were more than happy to just have a lovely meal. Thanks for a lovely last day in Malta.

It's right on the beach and the view is terrific. The service is excellent and the food was good. We ate there twice.

Probably the best place in the corner to have a good meal with good service on the beach.
If you are intercontinental clients with some poor features (swimming pool except for happy few on the roof) go there.

We made one day before a reservation. The manager knows how to make you feel appreciated by remembering my name. The ambiance with the bay view and good service is very good. We had as starter carpaccio of swordfish and salmon. Not a good choice because it didn't have any taste. As main course I chose smoked sea bass which looked good but was way to expensive. Also the taste was mediocre. Every side dish needed to order extra separately. My partner had ravioli from lobster and crab. This one tasted not bad. As summary, the food doesn't achieve the pretentious level been set by the ambiance compared to the price they ask for it. You can get better food for a much lower price, of course with a different ambiance.
