A true taste of Malta
The Maltese culture is one packed with colour, vibrancy and eclectic history.
Our Mediterranean lifestyle reflects that, and there is nothing we enjoy more than the chance to relax under the stars surrounded by good food, great entertainment and interesting people.
Cuisine is a vital part of life in Malta. It is taken very seriously and is packed with the freshest ingredients and yummiest fare.
Stone baked Maltese bread, known the world over for its crusty exterior and gooey white interior, is particularly more-ish when dipped in authentic local olive oil. Similarly the well loved gbejniet, a tangy goats’ cheese served plain or coated in cracked black pepper, is another well known delicacy.
The Maltese are famed for concocting interesting culinary tidbits that really do tickle the taste buds. Bigilla, a dip crafted from beans, herbs and plenty of garlic goes brilliantly with the tasty water biscuits known as galletti. Pastizzi are another firm favourite, the beloved snack of locals across the islands, but for all the wrong, artery clogging reasons! They are little pockets of filo pastry, deliciously filled with creamy ricotta cheese or peas, and we defy you to eat just one! Like most things in Malta, once you’ve tried them you will be hooked.
At the Limestone Heritage, Park and Gardens, our Maltese Summer Folklore Nights, offer a fantastic insight into traditional ways of local life – whether through the delicious dishes served or the vibrant Mediterranean atmosphere.
We start the evening off with a welcome drink and the chance to explore the award winning surrounding of the venue.
The traditional Maltese food on offer includes a delightful buffet menu of local delicacies, salads, meats and scrumptious desserts.
Entertainment is in abundance and guests will enjoy local dance team performing the Maltese Frejgatina (Fisherman’s dance) and the Farmer’s Dance, with our beloved donkeys taking centre stage!
As well as other folklore routines, accompanied by sprightly mandolin music.
We are proud of our food heritage, and go out of our way to use locally produced ingredients that ensure you enjoy the true taste of Malta.
Our Maltese Summer Folklore Nights is a showcase of the heart of Maltese Traditions and Cuisine and is surely a memorable night out!
Folklore Nights are an organized event and are held weekly from May until the end of October.
Free transport to the event is available from any location in Malta!
