Slightly off the beaten track heading down towards the water in Paceville, near Valletta is La Maltija and old-style Maltese sea-food restaurant where we found the chef outside the door arranging fresh fish on the ice. Inside we ordered a grilled seafood platter of calamari, bream and sea bass for 25 euros a head and a local chardonnay for 14 euros. It was all quite excellent.
La Maltija has no web site. Its phone number is 21359602 and the address is 1 Church St, Paceville, Malta.
