Best steak I had in my life “Bouquet Garni” – Malta Adventures

IMG_8752 IMG_8796 IMG_8771 IMG_8950 IMG_8955 This is a long overdue post, around this time last year I went on holiday to the Malta. Although the weather had it highs and lows I had a great time with my friends. The food over there didn’t wow me as much, until I researched a restaurant near our hotel.

IMG_9157   “Bouquet Garni” in Melliha had to be the highlight food from my trip, in the evenings it’s super packed with reservations, so we returned on a quieter evening. Living in the hotel 5 minutes away meant we could peer through the restaurant every night.   The service and food was outstanding, I can rave about this place with 5 stars for everything. Upon arrival we had super friendly staff greeting us, sat by the open window we were served with delicious hot piping fresh bread and traditional Maltese butter. Prior to ordering the lovely guy thoroughly went through the specials on the blackboard and even brought out the uncooked fresh fish and meat for us to see.

Every single course we had was simply mouth-watering blowing delicious. I must say until this day, the steaks from Bounquet Garni had to be the best I ever had in my life. The meat was super tender, melted in my mouth like butter full bodied with flavours. As I didn’t fancy the desserts on the menu, they specially made an eton mess for me. My friends loved it so much they went back to the restaurant a few times in the week without me.

A little warning if you order any prawn dishes expect them to be served half cooked.

  1. Every coastal area around the world is slowly becoming the hotspots for tourist destinations,
    not only for the scenic beauty but also they offer varied range
    of water adventures. With that, as a scuba diving instructor you will be
    able to bring others up to scuba diving. Located in a much quieter area than the
    other dive shops, at the far end of the beach, the hotel is more upmarket than most on the island although the ‘free’ rooms are still basic.
