Palazzo Castelletti – A dining experience like no other

Rabat is a masterpiece of architectural and cultural patrimony, with a multitude of historical locations jostling for attention in its ancient labyrinth of narrow streets and alleyways. But not only, Rabat offers a culinary experience like no other, wherein all tastes are catered for; from snack bars and diners to lavish fine dining restaurants, but the jewel in its crown is undoubtedly Palazzo Castelletti, a rediscovered historical gem which has been lavishly restored to its former glory.

Steeped in history, Palazzo Castelletti is a monument to Maltese heritage. Situated in the heart of Rabat, it was constructed in the 17th century, with a legacy which has spanned centuries, boasting features ranging from the Roman civilisation up to WW2. Housing three impeccable outlets; namely its flagship restaurant, San Andrea, Red and White and Trois, the latest addition to its success story, it is perhaps one of the most acclaimed dining experiences on the island.

San Andrea takes the concept of fine dining onto a whole new level; offering an innovative combination of contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with French influences while making use of the best Maltese produce in a clever and imaginary way. The passionate kitchen team offer an extensive, creative menu which changes regularly according to season. The skill and art involved in the food preparation, as well the impeccable quality service being offered in such a historic setting is simply unrivalled.

At Red and White, the vibe is more relaxed, but where the pizza, pasta and grills on offer are top-notch and the atmosphere just that bit more laid back. With a mouth-watering menu ranging from the traditional to the more colourful, Red and White is the place where you can just grab a bite to eat or while away a leisurely evening with friends or family – the choice is yours!

Trois is the traditional wine bar, but with a twist. Offering a fine selection of platters, you can choose your accompanying boutique wine at a nominal corkage fee of only €5. With an extensive wine list, featuring fine wines from all over the world and delectable food, Trois is the ideal venue for that perfect, no hassle evening.

Whatever the occasion, whatever your tastes, Palazzo Castelletti offers an ideal setting that is perfect for both indoor and al fresco dining during all seasons. Its majestic space is also fully equipped to cater for meetings, banquets and private functions and can accommodate up to 500 people from cellar right up to the roof terrace.
