We at La Vela Restaurant pride ourselves in the fact that our passion for food and wine has been thoroughly appreciated throughout the years.

Over the years we have won a number of awards which we were always honoured to receive. From 2015 to date, we have won the Silver Spoon Award Wines & Restaurants of Malta consecutively. These awards present scores based on a range of aspects. These include dish quality, presentation and preparation. It also takes into consideration the establishment’s ambience, service and cleanliness. Apart from that, it also regards value for money.


We were awarded the The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Awards for the years 2016 to date, alongside the Best Local & Foreign Wine Award. An award based on what frequent restaurant visitors rate each restaurant for. These give attention to service, food and ambience. Being the people’s choice when it comes to these three crucial features is something which honours us greatly.
