Malta Day 3


Starting the day with some sports.
15mins walking up hills, 20 mins jogging in the gym. After stretching had a swim in the outdoor pool.

Buffet breakfast
- the breakfast in the hotel is very good, there is something for everyone, including omelettes, fried eggs made on the spot - even Eggs Benedict are available.

Took the ferry to Sliema and walked along the beach promenade all the way to St Julian.

Dinner at Barracuda
194/5 Main Street, St Julian
Made the reservation in advance
Aljotta - traditional Maltese fish broth
Red snapper with roasted vegetables
Rocket salad with parmagione

Lemon sorbet

Prosecco as an aperative
Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio 2007

- the broth was delicious! Absolutely worth to taste. Had to wait for a spoon! Don't think it would have happened to Brad Pitt or Sharon Stone - just to mention 2 of the famous guests of the restaurant
- the fish was tasty
- the sorbet had the perfect texture

Had been to Barracuda before when visiting to Malta for the first and previous time in 1997. At that time it was excellent. Now the expectations were perhaps too high. It was good but that was all.
