In keeping with the Hotel’s charming simplistic contemporary design, L’Artiglio boasts an atmosphere of serene charm and relaxation.

The food preparation is under the control of Head Chef Janine, who can be seen together with her team in the open kitchen, bounding with energy and enthusiasm as she prepares and puts the final creative touches to her classic cuisine. The  menu  changes daily to ensure the freshest of local produce and offers a variety of dishes from starters such as baked Camembert served with fig jam and toasted Maltese bread, lampuki pie served on a lemon and thyme veloute, pulpetti and spaghetti octopus. Mains, such as slow-cooked beef cheeks, hoisin Barbary duck breast, honey and soy glazed lamb rump and pan seared calamari delight. Finally, a selection of sumptuous deserts is also available.
