Aalto Restaurant

This "diamond in the rough" is "top notch".

Perched on the water’s edge, above the mesmerising Blue Grotto, is a culinary jewel that offers an unparalleled dining experience with an idyllic view of the island of Filfla. This hidden gastronomic gem is an integral part of a modern and exclusive family owned and run boutique hotel, promising breathtaking sea views from the terrace and culinary delights to remember.

As you take your seat, prepare to be welcomed with the irresistible aroma of warm, home-baked focaccia. The bread is served with a delicious aged tomato paste and an olive tapenade that is sure to excite your palate from the very first bite. The menu offers an enticing selection of seafood and fresh fish of the day, with a special focus on “dry-aged red tuna” and freshly imported Oysters from France. For those who prefer land-based dishes, the menu features seasonal options like game, noble cuts of meat and mouth-watering vegetarian creations, including the delightful Spiced Butternut Squash Pastilla. Don’t forget to try out the lovely bites like the Char Sui glazed BBQ Halloumi or the Chicken and Nduja Arancini to complement your main course or as an aperitivo. Wine enthusiasts will appreciate the extensive wine selection, with a variety of exceptional wines available by the glass. Each sip enhances the flavours of your meal and complements the stunning sea views, making your dining experience nothing short of extraordinary.
