We visites this restaurant the first day of our vacation, came here for a dinner - pizza! The atmoshere was italian, there were many tourists from the hotel as well, so at the same time it was multi-cultural atmosphere. Nice music, great wine, serving and sophisticated waiter. Pizzas that night were amazing!

However, the nexd day we have orderes pizza for take out - it was dry and not that tasty.

My very first time to have a brunch at this lovely,clean, efficient and friendly Pizzeria and Restaurant .I was not so much interested in the view;the place is straddled in the valley between the lovely Old City Centre (European destination of excellence) and the Horrible Crammed Flats on the other side of the valley. My wife chose Tagliatelle dazzling in smell, taste and presentation. I went for Pizza Maltija. Playing home in my dream-town of a European destination of excellence ,I imagined it to be Maltija ta veru(Truly Maltese) meant to inure tourist into local cuisine.... poor me I was left with a nadir taste...I will go back though.. I ll try some meat dishes they looked amazing. Mellieha remains one of the most beautiful villages in the World.

I hadn't been here for a while but it was no surprise to find it still an excellent lunch stop - the Maritim Hotel is a very well managed hotel, the staff are all exceptionally friendly and efficient - our waitress Denise was delightful - also everywhere is always so clean throughout the hotel. Won't leave it as long next time.
