Hammett’s Macina Restaurant

A "different and pleasant experience" with a "touch of luxury", "lovely food , beautiful ambience, unusual and delightful surroundings and vista".

Nestled within the imposing Vittoriosa bastions, Hammett’s Macina offers an interplay between historical and contemporary, both in its cuisine and its decor. The peacock blue and taupe colour scheme, wood paneling, plush sofas and subdued lighting complement the honey-coloured stone typical of traditional Maltese architecture. The dining area is spacious with ample distance between tables, making it perfect for meetups both casual and business-related.
Maċina brings back the tribal concept of eating together and exchanging experiences, rather than wolfing down food in a rush. Enticing cocktails make for the perfect opening to the event. Exclusive syrups, infusions and purees made in-house make each cocktail a truly unique gustatory experience. Every dish is designed to be shared and enjoyed together at leisure—a bite to eat, a chat, a sip of wine, a pause, a laugh, another bite. To open up the palate, try the ftira sourdough bread with fresh tomatoes and tahini—a timeless combination. Next, pick and mix—garden, raw and cured, grains, sea, land, meze—the list goes on. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the rabbit pastilla with filo pastry, lentils, onions, Moroccan spice, and golden raisins. Accompany your meal with a nice vintage from the well-curated wine list. An exciting selection of desserts both traditional and exotic makes for the perfect conclusion to the experience.
