Il Pirata Mellieha Bay

"A lovely seaside experience" with "amazing food" and a "beautiful view".

Il Pirata offers a varied menu of tasty and creative food, providing a memorable food experience, with a choice of snacks, pizza, pasta or an à la carte 5-course menu that includes vegetarian dishes. The restaurant is located in Mellieha Bay, right on the beach, with views of the bay and the sound of the sea lapping the shore from the large terrace. Meanwhile inside, there is also ample seating, where the modern lighting and furniture create a relaxed, smart and uncluttered atmosphere. The staff is welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable, effortlessly matching a dish with wine to your liking, with the wine stored and served at its ideal temperature.

Tease your appetite with a slice of focaccia with tomatoes, basil and olive oil. The pumpkin soup with fried onion crumbs and roasted olives or the rigatoni served al dente, with a mozzarella di bufala and pesto sauce, with crushed pistachios sprinkled on top, are perfect starters. Cleanse your palate with a lemon or apple sorbet, as you prepare to welcome the flavours of the main course. The 1kg tagliata is just one of their many mouthwatering mains. Their gourmet pizzas are also incredible, so you will definitely be spoilt for choice. Both the brownie and the tiramisu are delicious, helping you end your meal with some flawless dessert.
