Entertainment facilities investigated in the awards are inspected and adjudicated on a wide range of factors. Such factors include ambience; atmosphere and decor; cuisine quality; preparation and presentation of dishes; management and staff attitude towards patrons and overall demeanour; wine list and price mark-up; value for money and overall quality.

“These criteria are targeted to cover the complete dining experience in the selected restaurants from when the inspectors enter the restaurant to the time that they leave,” the press statement says.

The Valletta Waterfront is a promenade in Floriana, showcasing a selection of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. What originally used to be stores and warehouses built in the 18th century, today serves as a hub to Malta’s cruise liner business.
