The Festive Season at the Valletta Waterfront

From a variety of dining experiences to convenient parking, and a designated children’s area, the Christmas season at the Valletta Waterfront promises to be an ideal destination for all the family.

The Valletta Waterfront destination combines food and beverage, retail and entertainment outlets within a maritime hub, which for the past ten years has proved to be a highly popular destination with Maltese, sea passengers and tourists alike. For those in search of a relaxing evening of good food and entertainment, the Valletta Waterfront’s many restaurants and bars present a variety of offerings catering to different tastes, with dining right at the water’s edge. 

It is an exquisite place at any time of the day: relax with a coffee in the morning watching the small boats bobbing along, or the recently inaugurated Laguna Marina, occasionally the bigger cruise ships with all their activity; a nice bite to eat at lunch-time with beautiful scenes of the water, the ships and the port; and a lovely meal of whatever takes your fancy at sundown. A perfect opportunity to enjoy the balmy Maltese winter weather - with inside seating, and heated outside areas for colder days.

One can wine and dine, or have a snack at any of the twelve restaurants, providing perfect dining experiences for every taste and pocket, and dining genre: from Oriental to Mediterranean – fish, pizza, pasta and succulent grills, making this venue an outstanding dining location for the whole family and the most discerning diner.

Browse the shopping outlets for interesting gifts – from jewellery, to that book you’ve been meaning to buy but haven’t got round to buying, hand-made ceramics, local glass and more. Visit our Retail section for more information.
