Malta Tourism Authority unveils Gastro Trail of Malta and Gozo

The Malta Tourism Authority has launched a new Gastro Trail of Malta and Gozo highlighting some of the best culinary hotspots for agents to discover and share with their clients.

With its blend of Italian and Arabic cuisine, the destination is fast becoming one to watch for foodies and the new Gastro Trail explores the restaurants, bars, farms and producers across both Malta and Gozo.

Epicureans can also enjoy the wine offering from the small archipelago, with many producers gaining international recognition for both indigenous and blended vintages, the best of which are marked on the trail.

The first in a series of themed ‘trails’, this map has been designed to be taken in bitesize chunks and agents can utilise the foodie guide and give it to clients to use for their stay on the islands so that they can visit each one, or simply stop off at the ones that take their fancy.

Each foodie gem on the map is briefly described with details of what it has to offer - whether it be the best place to try the abundance of fresh seafood, sample traditional Maltese savoury pastries that are baked throughout the night, meet independent gourmet artisans or simply where to see local cheese being created and buy the freshest ingredients.

Highlights on the map include: Sam Cremoa’s Olive Estate in Wardija where visitors can learn from a genuine olive oil sommelier and indulge in tastings as well as a traditional Maltese lunch; Diar Il-Bniet, a family run Maltese farm where guests can enjoy the fruits of the vineyards, olive groves and orchards; Ta’ Rikardu restaurant on Gozo which offers cheesemaking demonstrations for diners; and the rustic restaurant, Tartarun, in the traditional fishing village of Marsaxlokk.

The destination has long been a favourite destination with British travellers and this year the capital city, Valletta will be the 2018 European Capital of Culture.

The map picks out three restaurants here for atmospheric dining including Michael’s, a blend of traditional and cutting-edge cuisine in a historic setting and Panorama which has, as the name suggests, a panoramic vista of the Grand Harbour and The Harbour Club, famed for its seasonal and local menu as much as the waterside views.
