My best friends in Malta and I mainly met through work and now some of us have moved on to other companies it can be harder to meet up all in a group together. It’s been months since we managed so Jess had the bright idea of arranging a lunch on a day that was suitable to everyone. We decided to get out of Sliema and booked a table at Pepe Nero along the Valletta Waterfront. The restaurant was lovely, very oldy worldy inside. The light fixtures and stonework is absolutely beautiful. They have an indoor and a covered outdoor area which would be great in the Summer but as it’s a little chillier right now we sat inside.
They made up a special, not on the menu, platter for us to share as a starter, containing ham, salami, warm bread and cheese and only costing €12 which was a real bargain. It was just the right size for the 7 of us and was such a lovely nibble before the main courses. The food isn’t cheap so it’s not an every day lunch place, no sandwiches and wraps here! They serve award winning pizza, pasta dishes, a multitude of different beef and pig meats, salads and much more.
After the hail and general wet and darkness of yesterday, today was the polar opposite. 18 degrees and bright sunshine. I was working so had to have my laptop through lunch and didn’t have any time to wander around snapping Valletta in the sunshine but I did manage to sneak in one or two pics. Enjoy!
