Wiġi’s, with its inconspicuous front door overlooking busy Balluta Bay is easy to walk past but your first visit will certainly not be your last. With its cosy ambience, comfy chairs, friendly staff, and amazing dishes, Wiġi’s is the perfect combination that keeps patrons coming back. Wiġi (after whom the restaurant is named) handpicks the best and freshest produce himself every day from the various markets around the island. He’s a stalwark presence behind the bar whilst son Beppe attentively caters to each diner’s needs.
Each meal opens with a small platter of complimentary assaggi of peppered local cheeselet, olives, salami, olive oil and fresh bread. While the menu retains a number of favourites, there are always a select number of daily specials, testament to Wigi’s fine eye at choosing fresh produce. If the organic carrot soup garnished with Greek yoghurt happens to be available make sure you don’t miss it. The oven baked brie with crusted artichokes and tomato jam is equally appetising. For main course, you’ll be able to pick your fresh catch of the day or a juicy cut from a selection of beef displayed at your table or try the French rack of veal set on root vegetables or the lightly seared fresh tuna with olive oil, lemon and roasted vegetables. The warm chocolate fondant with vanilla ice-cream will leave you delightfully settled until you return.
