Imagine walking in off a busy street and suddenly finding yourself on a beautiful ship, forgetting all about the traffic and the noise and the bustle you left outside. That is the sensation at Port 21. Inside, all is serene, spacious, airy and immaculate. Prepare to be pampered and looked after—fine tablecloths, crockery, cutlery and glassware, white painted wooden chairs, tasteful decor and gentle background music. Savour the superb scene of the stunning Marsamxett Harbour with the majestic Floriana and Valletta bastions as a backdrop. The view can be appreciated from the different levels of covered outdoor dining, as well as from indoors through the charming windows.
Port 21 offers exquisite Mediterranean cuisine; from early morning for a bakery breakfast to quick business lunches and elegant dinners. The specials board is explained and left on your table to re-consult as often as necessary. Try the luscious salmon tartare on a bed of ginger and cucumber, followed by delightful linguine with vongole and cozze. Choose any fish of the day and the size you would like, and have it cooked as your heart desires. Definitely try the seabream al cartoccio. Relish succulent rabbit’s liver drenched in an aromatic sauce and round off the meal with desserts such as the amaretto and almond cheesecake.
