The Colin Best award For the Most Consistently Outstanding Restaurant In Malta & Gozo for 2019/2020

The Colin Best award recognises consistently highly-rated restaurants, which is what we ultimately wish all restaurants to aim for.

COLIN

This award is dedicated to the memory of Colin Best who sadly passed away on the 24th February 2013.

Colin Best, co-founder of the Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Restaurants together with Lisa Grech, realised 20 years ago that an objective restaurant guide was required on the islands if one was going to eat out well. Having researched the best formula for Malta, it was decided that a survey-based restaurant guide was the way forward, since restaurants would be rated by their patrons. This would keep the guide objective, while the survey and awards would assist in improving restaurants on the islands, since restaurant owners would have something to work towards. Over the years, the top rated restaurants receive awards recognising their hard work and continual investment into their product.
