Bouquet Garni

"A small family fun place with nice atmosphere and scrumptious food". "Top of the tops".

Bouquet Garni is a quaint, cosy restaurant in a prime location in the heart of Mellieħa. It is run by dedicated family members who are passionate about attention to detail and quality, and who prefer to keep the restaurant small so as to be able to provide the highest levels of service to each and every patron. The dark wooden beams on the ceiling, the black framed pictures on the walls all around and the muted background music add to the charming feel of the restaurant.
Bouquet Garni has a compact menu and daily specials dependent upon seasonal produce. All dishes are prepared in-house from scratch, including the crunchy, tasty bread covered in seeds and served steaming straight from the oven, accompanied by delicious extra virgin olive oil. Choose a wine from the extensive wine list and try the creamy prawn bisque with a tower of prawns in the centre or the delicious wild mushroom fricassée. Next enjoy the char-grilled veal cutlet with caper and tomato beurre noisette or the fish platter with pan-fried silver mullet, mussels, clams and prawns with sides of large roast potatoes and chunky vegetables. Finally indulge in a home-made dessert such as the sumptuous berry compote and Chantilly cream pavlova or the delicious chocolate fondant.
