Galea’s Kitchen

Food that "seems to be made from heaven" at "affordable prices". "Great atmosphere when bands are performing".

Walking into Valletta is like walking into living history. The sights, the roads, all add to the splendour. It has also become a foodie’s haven where all tastes are catered for. At Galea’s Kitchen in Merchants Street, a treat awaits all food lovers. You can enjoy your food and your favourite drink before or after being pampered at the hair salon that shares the premises—a mix of food, fun, satisfaction, and fashion. Even when competing with the rest of Valletta’s grandeur, Galea’s still shines. It is set in a 400-year-old building and the interior is beautiful and relaxing. The outdoor seating takes the dining experience to another level.
The food at Galea’s Kitchen is another gem to enjoy. Stop for an appetising snack and a drink, or feast away on a leisurely lunch or dinner. Food is mainly Mediterranean with some local dishes. The aljotta (fish soup), the rabbit stew, and the fresh pasta are truly delicious. Galea’s offers a wide range of fish, meat, and sweets. The Galea family runs the restaurant and salon, and has owned the premises for over a hundred years. They manage to fuse tradition with a modern touch, making their eatery in Valletta a congenial place to try delicious food as well as get your hair styled.
