As in the rest of the country, the restaurant scene in Valletta is an eclectic mix offering a variety of cuisines to satisfy all tastes and budgets.
A growing number of eateries around the city are now offering local fare, serving their own versions of traditional specialities.
Maltese cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the islanders and the many conquerors who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries. This marriage of tastes has given local gastronomy a Mediterranean character all its own.
And nowhere is this mixture of culture and cuisne more strongly felt than in Malta's cosmopolitan capital.
Food and lifestyle blogger Elizabeth Ayling takes us through the backstreets, bars and battlements that make the Maltese capital such a fantastic place to visit.
