Hammett’s Macina

TEMPORARILY CLOSED - "Great experience all round - highly recommended. Perfect for sharing dishes". "Outside area offers a good setting especially in Summer".


Nestled within the imposing Vittoriosa bastions, Hammett’s Macina offers an interplay between historical and contemporary, both in its cuisine and its décor. The peacock blue and taupe colour scheme, wood paneling, plush sofas and subdued lighting complement the honey- coloured stone typical of traditional Maltese architecture. The dining area is spacious with ample distance between tables, making it perfect for meetups both casual and business-related.

Maċina brings back the tribal concept of eating together and exchanging experiences, rather than wolfing down food in a rush. Enticing cocktails make for the perfect opening to the event. Exclusive syrups, infusions and purees made in-house make each cocktail a truly unique gustatory experience. Every dish is designed to be shared and enjoyed together at leisure — a bite to eat, a chat, a sip of wine, a pause, a laugh, another bite. To open up the palate, try the ftira sourdough bread with fresh tomatoes and tahini — a timeless combination. Next, pick and mix — garden, raw and cured, grains, sea, land — the list goes on. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the rabbit and matbucha with tomato, garlic, red peppers and za’atar. Accompany your meal with a nice vintage from the well-curated wine list. An exciting selection of desserts both traditional and exotic makes for the perfect conclusion to the experience.
