Restaurant | "The best food I have eaten in Malta"

Quote:
When I recently went on holiday to Malta my family offered to take me and my boyfriend out for a meal at the Plumtree restaurant in Bugibba, Qawra. The restaurant was very easy to find as it was only a short walk from our hotel. The restaurant has a menu on the outside of the property displaying all of the available choice. Whilst we were looking one of the owners (Joan) came to talk to us to tell us about the food and once she found out that I was vegetarian told me that they could cook me anything that I wanted as they had vegetarian versions of lots of the menu options that were already there. This she explained was due to the food being fully prepared and cooked on site which meant tha...Read More

During my holiday to Malta I visited the amazing Crafts village in Gharb. I travelled to Crafts village from the Bugibba bus station Route 65 Sliema - Rabat - Mdina (I believe it was the stop before Mdina however the bus drivers are very helpful and will stop here for you if asked). The village itself is very strange looking, the area used to be an RAF airfield. There are lots of buildings scattered around all housing various crafts such as pottery, glass blowers and the famous hand made silver filigree. All of the crafts are free to watch and are very informative, the people are willing to talk about and demonstrate how things are made. One of my favourite of the crafts is the pottery wor...Read More

Malta is a small European island in the mediterranean sea. It takes about three hours to fly to from the United Kingdom. In the summer the weather can always be relied upon to be extremely hot and sunny, I have travelled there many times in the summer and have found that temperatures normally hit around the high thirties. I have also been in the winter and it is still quite warm, a shawl is needed (even though the Maltese walk around in woolly jumpers!). The landscape is very dry and rugged, people generally seem to either love or hate the landscape. The beaches are sandy but most are very rocky so it can be difficult entering the water. The sea is beautiful but in some areas can be quite ...Read More

I have flown with Air Malta many times over the last few years or so. I have always found that the flight is good with varying service. On all occasions the flights both ways have always been on time (sometimes it has left early) and have never had a problem with the check in staff as they are always polite and friendly. They are also very accommodating and were able to book me a vegetarian meal even though I had not booked one for the flight preiously to arriving at the airport. You can book for extra baggage, seat selection, insurance and make hotel reservations all through their website. The seats on the plan are not very comfortable and sometimes feel like they aren't very ...Read More

Bugibba is a beautiful holiday destination situated on the small European island of Malta. With a rocky landscape and tropical waters this town is a great place to stay or visit (especially for its night life) as it has something for everyone. The views of St. Paul's Island and the Maltese fishing boats in the bay are spectacular. During the recent recession this beautiful town has slightly gone downhill due to the closure of many of its popular shops and many buildings have been left half built. Desipte its touristic nature and atrractions you do still get a feel for the local Maltese charm as it has not been ruined like other European countries that were once beautiful (e.g. ...Read More
