The Lord Nelson Restaurant

Epic experiences with every visit. "Fantastic food and excellent service in a cozy environment."

From the moment you step into The Lord Nelson in Mosta, it is immediately clear where it gets its long-held reputation for excellence. It starts with a subtle sense of elegance. The tasteful decor enhances the beautiful architecture of this classic 300-year-old Mosta townhouse, with its perfectly-preserved wooden windows and beams, and trademark yellow masonry. From there, the experience continues to unfold as you settle down into an intimate world where you are royalty. Staff are attentive and accommodating without being intrusive. They are invisible, yet present for your every need. It feels as if The Lord Nelson existed only for you.
The menu changes every three or four months, presenting you with an exciting and novel experience with every visit. If you’re feeling adventurous, you may opt for a degustation experience. Choose your own dishes, or let the chef craft your journey. Either way, you will not be disappointed. There’s also a tantalising plant-based menu that’s perfect for vegans or people with food intolerances, but not just. Whatever your choice, you’re guaranteed a feast of aromas, tastes, textures and visuals – truly a complete experience. Accompany your meal with a choice vintage from the carefully-curated wine list and you’re in for a real treat. To conclude, you must not miss Chef Steve Vella’s truly unique take on a vegan chocolate fondant. Absolutely dreamy.
