Chef patron Carl Zahra won the Junior Chef of the Year award in 2009 and with his extensive experience as a chef both in Malta and abroad, opened the Fork and Cork some years ago. Great attention to detail and an eye for creativity and ambience have been paid with regard to the décor of this very popular restaurant. From the inviting facade to the cosy, intimate and romantic lighting and original scraped limestone walls of the interior, the restaurant is established inside a lower section of what was once a large 19th century family estate. The outside terrace offers a wonderful 180 degree view of the countryside – a perfect spot for al fresco dining.
Chef Carl offers guidance on his tantalising daily specials and à la carte menu, which changes seasonally. Specials depend on market availability and seasonal produce. Start with the warm salad of duck then move on to the stuffed belly of lamb. There are meats to share and wild, locally-caught fresh fish to choose from. Complete your meal with the apple tarte tatin or baked mascarpone with pistachio cake and rosewater jelly. There’s an extensive wine list as well as grappa, single malt and blended malt whiskeys are available. The Fork and Cork is a great experience for lovers of fine food and in serene ambience.
