The Fork and Cork

Patrons "love their menu" and find "nothing to fault".

Personable Chef patron Carl remains loyal to Rabat’s prime culinary destination on Saqqajja’s flagstone steps. The typical Maltese townhouse has transformed into intimate dining rooms on the upper level. A statement chandelier, true to its namesake, marries forks dangling prettily surrounded by inverted glassware to magical effect. Downstairs dine under wooden beams, where luxurious leather chairs and rich, parquet flooring create an intimate setting. Outdoors an oversize fork and cork motif signal your arrival at this choice pick. Unparalleled views of the valley astound. Thick, crisp linen tablecloths and heavy, top grade silverware hold to their promise of a fine dining experience.

A surprise tasting menu, championing local, awaits the adventurous diner. Feast your eyes on a glazed beef brisket with creamed cauliflower and porcini mushroom pickled rutabaga carpaccio, or try the Chickpea Garni Salad. Be sure to ask for the fish of the day. A lamb rump, roasted and served with white bean cassoulet, kalamata olives and harissa jus, is also divine. Resistance to the viscous trio of Italian cheeses is futile. Wine pairing is best left to the experts as the vast wine list attests.
