Back in 2012 when I first wrote this post, it drove me insane that it was almost impossible to find a food delivery option in Malta that accepted card payments. Everything was done in cash, but nowadays this is a thing of the past. With amazing new services like Bolt Food and Time To Eat you can now order online, pay by card, keep track of your order at all stages and have a much wider selection of choice!
Whether you’re looking for McDonalds or KFC delivery in Malta, Indian takeaway to be delivered, or home delivery for sushi, Chinese food, burgers, pasta or even Russian food, you will find what you are looking for.
Food delivery apps in Malta
Finally! It’s 2020 and we now have a few different food delivery apps to choose from. If you look at food prices over the last few years, this new, more convenient way to order has definitely had an impact with prices rising way over the usual rate of inflation. So, Malta is no longer one of the cheapest places in Europe, but perhaps a small price to pay for additional convenience.
- Bolt Food – offering contactless delivery in this coronavirus times
- Time to Eat– use the desktop site as the app is awful
- Zaype– best prices, least choice.
- Delivify– not used them but rumour has it they offer food delivery from KuYa!
- Malta Menu– I have never used
- Online Eats– I have never used
Restaurant delivery on Bolt Food
Bolt Food is comparable to Uber Eats from other countries. Same style of app and service. And here in Malta, oh my god they have the best choice. MCDONALDS DELIVERY IN MALTA! There’s a huge range of options here for bike delivery, including places like:
- McDonalds food delivery
- New York Best delivery
- The Greenroom Tapas + Cocktail Lounge
- Hugo’s Burgers
- Fat Louie
- TukTuk food delivery in Malta
There will be more or less options depending on your location so make sure to download the app and see what places are available to you. Then you can track the progress as the restaurant prepares the food, the courier picks it up and see their exact location as they bike over to you.
Food delivery charges on Bolt Food range from €2 – €3 in my experience.
Timetoeat food home delivery in Malta
TimeToEat has been around for a few years in Malta now. First with a website, and more recently with an app (which I find unuseable). The service is not as good as with Bolt Food- you can’t track delivery in anyway, it usually takes longer and delivery is generally more expensive. But if you want to order for collection somewhere nearby or just aren’t a fan of Bolt, then it’s another choice.
Some restaurants I spotted on TimeToEat that were not on Bolt Food include:
- Brass and Knuckle
- Donut Factory
- Il Gabbana
- Po-K Hawaiian
They do seem to have a lot more choice when it comes to small cafes and cheap sandwich type places.
More food delivery options in Malta
There are some restaurants though that, for whatever reason, are yet to be found on any of the aggregated delivery apps, but do offer delivery when you order direct.
