The Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Restaurants in Malta and Gozo awards are the result of an annual survey assessing comments from large numbers of local and visiting restaurant goers who contribute to the most current, objective and reliable guide on the Maltese islands. The very best restaurants receive awards at an annual Gala Dinner, which takes place in December and is known as the ‘Oscars’ of the local restaurant industry.
The Guide, which is now in its eleventh year of publication, is now established as Malta’s foremost publication for lovers of good food. It is based on the reports and comments of regular restaurant goers who rate venues according to food, service and ambience.
