On the outskirts of Buġibba’s lively pub and restaurant hub, The Chef’s Table is run by Chef Patron Alain and his partner Noemi, whose dedication and expertise have made this restaurant a well-loved gem. The decor is simple and unpretentious, with comfy indoor seating and outdoor tables for Maltese summer nights. There’s also a patio that enjoys a mild breeze during the moderate seasons.
The motto at The Chef’s Table is cooked with love… served with a smile. Staff are welcoming and accommodating. They are well-prepared and knowledgeable about every item on the menu and will happily take the time to shed light over the tiniest detail. The menu is varied and caters even for vegetarians and vegans. Portions are just the right size, allowing you to enjoy a complete meal with dessert and leave the table feeling comfortable. The fresh scallops with blood orange segments, pickled fennel, dill oil and Gozitan sea salt make for a delicate start. Follow it up with a confit duck leg terrine with seasonal artichokes and burnt orange gel, or the chicken liver and foie gras parfait with pear chutney and home-made brioche. All mains are accompanied by roasted potatoes or fries, and fresh, seasonal vegetables prepared ‘al dente’ and with an Asian twist.
