Hammett’s Gastro Bar is set in a prime location along the Sliema seafront facing the striking views of Marsamxett Harbour. The décor is modern and sophisticated with lashings of class, synonymous with multi-award winning restaurateur Chris Hammett’s brand of establishment. It is a great spot for lunch, dinner, weekend brunch or simply to pop in for a happy hour drink and a bar bite. Reservations are not accepted, so it’s first come, first served, but you’re welcome to enjoy a cocktail from their very creative selection in the bar area while you wait. Staff are vibrant and engaging, and will happily guide you towards the perfect selection.
The seasonal menu brings together innovative interpretations of sharing plates with a variety of culinary influences using fresh local produce where possible. Each dish is formed with classic ingredients combined with imaginative and upscale cooking techniques. Dishes are smaller in size and designed to be shared. Try the Venezuelan arepa with pork, tomato and mayo, or beef bao dim sum with Chinese style beef and pickled spring onions. Move onto the Maltese rabbit in red wine, garlic and thyme for a delightful spin on the classic. Conclude with a signature torrija – brioche with smoked milk and roasted powder milk. Make sure you check out the Hammett’s bottomless brunch on Saturdays and Sundays!
