Palazzo Preca in Valletta – Ramona Portelli Blog

Palazzo Preca is situated in the very heart of Malta’s capital city – Valletta.  Situated exactly at 54, Strait Street, Valletta, Palazzo Preca is fast establishing itself as an upmarket fine dining restaurant in Valletta.

Owned by Charles Preca of Tal-Familja Restaurant of Marsascala, and his daughter Ramona Preca better known as the ‘dancing chef’, Palazzo Preca offers a warm welcome and a superb experience dining in a 15th century palazzo in the heart of Valletta.

One can find a variety menu consisting of fresh oysters, scallops, prawns, mussels and much more.  It also serves a variety of Mediterranean and Maltese dishes such as pasta, most recommended with sea food, colourful salads, Irish beef fillet, traditional cooked rabbit, fresh fish and shellfish. 

The choice of fish is amazing, the service is smart, and the place is warm enough that anyone can enjoy a great lunch or dinner.

Executive Chef Ramona Preca invited me over at Palazzo Preca for a superb dinner.  I accepted gratefully.  Parking was not a problem, and within some few minutes away, I found myself in this warm palazzo.  Her staff greeted us immediately, while they settled us on a table.  Had a look at the menu, but opted to leave it all in Ramona’s magic hands for a fish selection of her choice.

Infact Ramona prepared us a selection of fish food – Spigola Carpaccio with raw sea urchins, prawn arancini and lampuki goujons, pot of mussels and prawns in garlic, swordfish set on fresh spinach cooked black olives and garlic and a selection of varied sweets like fried imqaret with home-made ice-cream and crème’ brulee.

We simply loved the food, the hospitality and all the setting !!!  The food was top notch from start to finish, the staff was very friendly and the venue is very beautiful located.

I recommend Palazzo Preca for any occasions – being it’s a romantic lunch or dinner, with friends or relatives.  If you love fish, and you are in Valletta – then this place is a must !!!

Bookings are recommended but walk-ins are welcome.  It is open for lunch and dinner and bookings can be made on 21226777, 9984 6866 or 9986 6640.
