We came here in November. We are now back in May. This is a great little place for a light lunch and drink coffee hot chocolate. The girls are lovely and cheerful always smiling the service is great. The food we had on our last year was good but some bits were different but still as good.

I have been going to Crudo practically every week
Each time I either take a salad or a brown bread sandwich with avocado
On each occasion I was delighted with what I was served
I would definitely recommend Crudo to those who appreciate good quality fresh ingredients
Thanks to you all who work there

We had lite bites here a couple of times. The bruschetti is freshly made and tasty, particularly with a glass of local wine. The coffee is good too. Everything seems to be freshly made - the sandwiches look delicious. The staff are friendly and helpful. If you want something quick or to take away its the ideal spot in Baluta Bay.

Popped in for a spot of lunch. Most places in Malta serve overly generous portions. This place definitely doesn’t although they seem to charge more than others. The waitress was very pleasant but over worked and consequently service was slow. Perhaps the location by the bay brings in the customers and its over the road from Le Meridien but we wouldn’t go back again. 2 x salad and a bruschetta starter with water came to about €40. The salads were tasteless and the salmon and cream cheese bruschetta was tiny.

Hello there we are sorry that you felt this way . It is certainly not our intention as we try our best to serve generous portions with the high quality products we use . Most of our cheeses and meats are artisanal from Italy therefore our prices tend be slightly higher dude to this reason . Our salads are intended to be tasty and generous using lovely dressings . Our other reviews should reflect this . Please feel free to come in for a full refund or to give us an opportunity to change the way you feel about us by taking a free meal . Kindest Regards
