New restaurant in Birgu. The 'private dining concept', where patrons and the chef decide on a customized menu together, is new to the local market.
Each recipe is prepared with local, seasonal produce, prepared within hours of purchase. Tal-Petut offers a vast selection of wines, however patrons can also bring their own wines, at a corkage fee per person.
The house is ideally suited to being reserved for a private function, consisting of three separate dining areas and a bar. Tal-Petut recommends groups from six to eighteen for a more customized and friendly environment, although larger groups up to eighty can be hosted.
20 Triq Pacifiku Scicluna, Birgu.
