Surf N Turf

One of the best restaurants in Malta. Food is divine and service is outstanding. A "lovely place, good food and ambience."

Surf N Turf is the crowning effort of Joshua Borg and Kerstin Manicolo, two highly sought-after restaurant professionals whose stunning track record and expertise are matched only by their enthusiasm for exceptional service and cuisine. The dining area is tastefully decorated in greys, browns and beiges. A feature wall of honey-colored Maltese stone and a selection of vibrant works of art, create a bold but pleasing visual contrast, balancing the elegant and the modern. The outside area is enjoyable throughout the year, especially during the milder seasons. Joshua and his team treat their patrons to an exceptional dining experience, and navigate the dining area with coordination and grace.
In the kitchen, Kerstin and team prepare works of art that please the senses with flavour, aroma and texture, as well as striking colours, form and design. The menu includes French Gillardeau oysters -considered “the Rolls-Royce of oysters”- (when available), salmon carpaccio smoked at the table with Allier oak, 24 hour slow-cooked local pork, hand-made ravioli with Maltese sausage and French goat’s cheese, and the signature “Surf N Turf” with half lobster Thermidor and USDA beef fillet medallions. For the adventurous, Kerstin and team can concoct a degustation menu tailored to taste, while Joshua will draw on his extensive experience as a sommelier for the perfect wine pairing. The dessert menu changes regularly but is always guaranteed to conclude the experience on a perfectly delectable note.

  1. Great chef best food And Very nice people see you soon

  2. Best dessert ever

    They have the best dessert I ever tasted. The creme brulee is mouth-watering. The combination with cinnamon is great!!! By the side of it you get a scoop of amaretto ice cream that I never found somewhere else and taste fantastic. Totally recommended.
    Great staff and great ambience. They don’t bother you while you’re talking to your partner and they know exactly who has the dish that has been ordered. Large selection of wines to fit any kind of food. Really good place!
