Madliena Lodge Restaurant

"A consistently high level of service" with "professional and welcoming staff". "The perfect place to relax" and enjoy "excellent food"

Madliena Lodge is located on a hill top with commanding sea views, just a short hop from the northwest of St Julian’s. With generous car parking facilities, it boasts a relaxed ambiance and an attractive bar area that can comfortably accommodate up to 70 for bespoke private functions. It also has a main restaurant area merged seamlessly into the original old building where fireside and balcony seats are in demand during the winter months. In the summer, diners enjoy a substantial outdoor terrace area. Managed by Miguel and his enthusiastic and professional young team, Madliena Lodge delivers a refreshing and original vision of gastronomic quality and experience to its guests.
The menu offers an exciting range of dishes to tempt every palate. And it does not disappoint. The starter menu includes beetroot variations with truffle and a goat’s cheese fritter, a tom yum broth with chilies, lemongrass, ginger and coconut milk or salmon three ways: cured, poached and smoked with wasabi mayonnaise and cucumber. Main dish options are equally inviting and cater for all tastes with variations reflecting the availability of seasonal produce, each visit offers the possibility of new discoveries. The pan-seared duck breast with boulangerie potatoes, saffron, turnips, honey crisp and date jus melts in your mouth. Delicious desserts include a tangy lemon tart with crème fraiche, lime sherbet and apple crumble. Service is discrete, prompt and attentive. With exquisite presentation and very generous portion sizes, a visit to the Madliena Lodge is, quite simply, a must.
