Patrons "recommend others to go" to this "perfect venue".

Barbajean is a fresh, new concept located on the Dingli piazza just below the church, making full use of this scenic location. Outdoor umbrellaed tables during fine weather and a very artsy restaurant interior awaits the finer diner. Rachelle and chef Jean Pierre have put together a totally cool and chic experience, offering a menagerie of dishes with a Mediterranean/Maltese twist, expertly-prepared and beautifully-presented. Marble tables and comfy velvet chairs enhance this light and airy space.

The menu is modern, diverse and very exciting. Starters include deep fried scallops with caviar potato cream, Buttermilk Fried Chicken Steamed Bao, and so many more nibbles. Barbajean’s signature Maltese sausage scotch egg totally steals the show. For mains, the Grill King Prawns are an excellent choice. The Pan Seared Fillet of Meagre is also lovely. For vegetarians, the Barbajean Truffle Burger delights with perfect culinary chemistry. Delightful sides include the tomato, feta and herb salad as well as crunchy triple-cooked potatoes with parmesan and black truffle. Throughout your meal, you’ll want the company of a superb vintage from the wine list, or a delicious cocktail. For dessert, try the imqaret with vanilla ice-cream – quite possibly the best you’ll ever taste.
