After dedicating the time to research part of our heritage, we would like to take our guests back in time. We have chosen 8 important periods during Maltese history, and used some of the representative ingredients during those times to create a contemporary dish.
This menu pays homage to the importance of our diverse historical developments that led us to be what we are today.
Amongst the periods researched, this menu represents the following: Stone Age, Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Knights Hospitallers, Maltese.
