Commando sits along the winding road that leads from the beautiful village of Mellieħa, through the lush valley, and down to Ghadira Bay. the restaurant’s ambiance has inherited the original building’s cosy charm, which has been further accentuated by a non-invasive and tasteful décor. During warmer days, the patio enjoys a sweet breeze that blows up the valley to alleviate the stifling Maltese heat. The gorgeous views make for a superb backdrop that elevates a stellar dining experience even further.
Tempered under Michelin-starred chefs, chef Damian Ciappara leads the brilliant team at commando. The menu is carefully assembled to represent both the traditional and the experimental, presenting a variety of delightful tastes, textures and colours, while daily specials add a sprinkle of excitement and novelty for regulars. To maximise your culinary experience, it would be a good idea to sample multiple starters, such as the pan-seared scallops, the asparagus and almond pesto tart, and the veal ragu risotto. Then maybe move on to the fillet of beef or dry aged duck breast with truffled polenta chips. Conclude with the raspberry and vanilla cheesecake for a delightful aftertaste on the palate.
