Eat Local

Maltese people love their food and they take the time to enjoy it before getting on with their days. Colourful flavours, inspiration coming from the local production, recipes that survived generations and influences of neighbouring countries – all this buzz came together to create a vibrant cuisine in the centre of Mediterranean making it a perfect food destination for holidaymakers and FoodLovers. The Maltese islands have a long history of settlers and invaders. Being centrally located in the Mediterranean, the islands were a perfect hub for by-passers to stay, recharge, refuel and eventually continue their journey. As the Maltese language, Maltese cuisine is also a mix of civilisations where you find traces of Italian, Sicilian, English influences as well as Spanish, French, Maghrebin, and a pinch of Arab and North African tastes. Maltese recipes are mostly Mediterranean based, with an appreciated array of freshly caught seafood and fish such as Lampuki and Swordfish, locally grown vegetables and fruit, and very popular among tourists – crusty Maltese bread and oil. Maltese food is also rustic based on the seasons, especially when it comes to desserts and sweets that vary according to the festivities in the islands.
