About Contessa at The Phoenicia Malta

Just before Christmas 2023, The Phoenicia Hotel Malta unveiled an exciting transformation of its iconic terrace, transforming it into a lush conservatory that feels like a botanically-themed paradise, ready to be enjoyed throughout the year, regardless of the weather. One of my favourite parts is their unique tableside theatre. Picture a tableside trolley service that not only serves your meal but also crafts cocktails and prepares special desserts right before your eyes, including Contessa's signature tiramisu. It's dining with a touch of magic!

Executive Chef Daniel Debattista and his team are transforming Southern Mediterranean cuisine into an everyday luxury. They update the menu seasonally, blending culinary artistry with Malta's fresh produce for an exciting dining experience.

The wine list showcases a fantastic selection from across Europe, from delightful Maltese wines to exquisite Italian and French varieties, not to mention a few gems from the New World. The best part? They offer these exceptional wines at prices you'd be hard-pressed to find in most five-star hotels. Trust me, there's something for everyone, and you'll be pleasantly surprised by the value.
