With "beautifully presented food", this place is "one of the best".

Perched elegantly on the pristine Kalkara Waterfront, Marea is a ‘Mediterrasian’ haven, gracefully marrying the allure of Mediterranean charm with the finesse of Asian nuances. The panoramic splendour of the Grand Harbour plays muse to this culinary sanctuary, beckoning patrons with its captivating vistas. Under its new management, Marea has retained the sophistication of its decor, presenting an amalgamation of contemporary aesthetics and soothing palettes that resonate with both the Mediterranean and Asian ethos. Whether dining amidst the indoor opulence or savouring the refreshing sea-breeze al fresco, Marea promises an impeccable service, ensuring an experience as exquisite as the backdrop it commands.

Marea’s culinary repertoire is a symbiosis between Asia’s rich traditions, with a pronounced nod to Japanese artistry, and the hearty essence of Mediterranean fare. The Red Snapper Donburi—a delightful creation of sushi rice, red snapper, radish, Avruga caviar and spicy ponzu dressing—stands out as an ode to Japan’s refined craftsmanship. From the mains, the succulent cuts of in-house dry-aged beef, and the charcoal grilled seabass with prawn bisque, grilled bok choi, kombu marinated daikon, and prawn and crab croquette, deserve special attention. For a fitting conclusion, definitely try the Peach and Frangipane Tart, with thyme, honeyglaze, and tonka espuma. Every visit to Marea promises a symphony of flavours, a testament to the restaurant’s unwavering commitment to culinary excellence.
