Malta continues to grow its reputation as a gastronomic paradise with five Maltese restaurants awarded a Michelin Star this year, following on from the publication of the first Michelin Guide Malta in 2020. Noni, de Mondion and Under Grain have maintained the stars they were awarded last year, while Bahia and Ion – The Harbour, have been awarded stars for the first time.

 

 

Established in the late 19th century, Michelin has set the benchmark of international food for more than 120 years by recognising some of the greatest cuisines in the world. The Michelin Guide Malta 2021 features 31 restaurants spread across Malta and Gozo and highlights the cuisine styles and culinary skills that can be found across the islands.

 

 

Five Maltese restaurants have also been identified as taking positive steps to work more sustainably. The restaurants highlighted for their initiatives are: The Harbour Club in Valletta, Noni in Valletta, Briju in Gżira, De Mondion in Mdina and Tmun in Mġarr.

 

Tolene van der Merwe (Director Malta Tourism Authority UK and Ireland) said, “We are delighted that Malta now has five Michelin starred restaurants. We know that Malta has an exciting food scene and the launch of the second edition of the Guide will continue to highlight all the fantastic restaurants travellers can enjoy while visiting Malta and Gozo. We look forward to welcoming back tourists so that they can experience our fabulous cuisine”.

 

The Malta Tourism Authority recently announced that Malta plans to start welcoming fully vaccinated tourists to the island free of restrictions from the 1st June. Visitors will need to present proof of full vaccination received at least ten days before arriving in the country.

 

Ireland is currently classified by Malta as an ‘amber’ country; non-vaccinated tourists from ‘amber’ countries will need to submit a negative PCR COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before travelling, and will then also be allowed into Malta from June 1st.
