Fernandõ Gastrotheque

The "premium fine food" and "huge wine cellar" always leave patrons hungry for more.

On a quiet street in the throbbing heart of Sliema lies the oenophile’s haven that is Fernandõ Gastrotheque. this smart, modern eatery greets you with displays of whole jamón legs on carving racks and singular cheeses. Riedel wine glasses hang above the feature bar amongst a broad alcohol selection where tea lights flicker daintily in bevelled glasses. Tropical wallpaper statement walls stand out from their deep teal counterparts, softly illuminated by copper pendant lighting. Clever caricatures of wine industry buffs adorn the walls, with the main patriarch — the owner’s father — in pride of place. smart, professional servers complete the intimate air of this elegant restaurant.

The authoritative menu is juxtaposed by an extravagant selection of wines also available by the glass. Linen tableware, leather placemats and heavy cutlery set the scene for an inimitable amuse bouche tris. An exquisite charcoaled fish bone and bufalo milk chowder takes the tasting menu to the first course. The delicate, choice cut of local fish in rich celeriac velouté vies for attention, while the Confit of Pork Neck begs for attention. Appease your sweet tooth with melting chocolate cremeux beside gianduja ice-cream. A prime selection of artisanal charcuterie on crisp homemade crackers with chutney is essential. For a complete dining experience, your sommelier will suggest wine pairings, poured from the signature lyre-shaped decanter.
