Caviar & Bull Restaurant - MaltaPerhaps words fail me to describe as good as it really was the real feeling of the first three innovative starters, -Oysters, the Caviar and the Seared Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, all fresh and exquisite. They had a ritual presentation with the liquid nitrogen for effect, creating a fragrant mist making an already exceptional dinner, a dreamy experience.

Next Tiger Prawns “Ancient Tempura” and Alba Truffle flavored reconstructed Mushrooms. Crispy and mouthwatering presented in the same dish, a nice combination, distinctive texture accompanied by notes of ginger. Yummy! The wine list includes some great wine choices with a few really expensive ones to suit most pockets. We had a bottle of Pinot Noir 2011, pleasant on the nose with excellent crisp acidity.

Caviar & Bull Restaurant - MaltaFood was mouthwatering -a taste of heaven, with the dessert as the cherry on top of the cake. Sorbet though makes a great palate cleanser thus we opted for the savory lemon one with Vodka and Prosecco before we proceed to the sweet delicacies.

Caviar & Bull Restaurant - MaltaI opted for the Vanilla Crème Brulee with salted coffee sauce. Sophisticated presentation served with caramelized banana, it was perhaps the best I’ve ever had counting in presentation and taste. The Chocolate Fondant with chocolate and hazelnut soil and toffee ice-cream was my friend’s choice. Superb as it was, my friend enjoyed every bite of it.
