The Phoenicia Malta, a symbol of classic elegance and luxury, is excited to reveal Contessa, its latest culinary delight. This revamped dining space is set to transform Southern Mediterranean cuisine, bringing new levels of sophistication to Malta's food scene.
Born from the well-respected Phoenix restaurant at The Phoenicia Malta, Contessa has been reinvented into a year-round culinary haven. It offers a unique dining experience, featuring an array of table-side services and signature dishes that promise to wow the guests. Open to everyone, Contessa invites diners to enjoy its beautiful setting, whether outdoors under the bright Maltese sky or inside the stylishly decorated internal dining area, a key feature of The Phoenicia.
Robyn Pratt, The Phoenicia Malta's General Manager, is enthusiastic about Contessa:
“The Phoenicia Malta has always stood for outstanding guest experiences. With Contessa, we're taking our service to the next level, providing unmatched dining options all year round. Our new all-weather Conservatory allows guests to enjoy our beloved Phoenicia Terrace no matter the season.”
Contessa's design seamlessly merges traditional Maltese hospitality with a modern approach to food. This is evident in the terrace's transformation into an impressive conservatory, inspired by botanical gardens, offering a delightful and weather-proof dining space.
Executive Chef Daniel Debattista, in collaboration with Chef de Cuisine Alessandro Gravino, oversees the kitchen operations at the hotel, ensuring the efficient execution of meals, including breakfast, lunch, brunch, and dinner at Contessa. Daniel brings a wealth of culinary expertise, with a background in prestigious establishments such as The Gleneagles in Scotland and La Gavroche. Similarly, Alessandro possesses significant experience, having honed his skills in various renowned restaurants both locally and abroad.
Contessa's menu is a tribute to Southern Mediterranean cuisine, creatively blending local ingredients with innovative cooking methods. This evolving menu will reflect the best seasonal offerings from the Mediterranean. This dedication to culinary innovation and quality underscores The Phoenicia Malta's commitment to delivering a unique and memorable dining experience.
