Blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year, Malta offers ideal set-ups to meet & dine outdoors. Not only do the hotels offer extensive outdoor areas, but also tucked away olive groves, vineyards, small estates, beach clubs, gardens, and rooftop terraces can be exclusively booked for groups to dine in Malta and meet outdoors.
Malta-based DMC expert Mark Gatt shares 3 trending experiential dining concepts in Malta for memorable events on The Islands.
Exclusive wine pairing dinners at Ta Betta Wine Estate
The winery is situated in the idyllic countryside in a luxuriously finished Maltese farmhouse. Surrounded by 15,000 vines and indigenous Maltese flora, the estate enjoys views of the medieval, walled city of Mdina and the Grand Master’s Summer Residence. The estate offers exclusive wine tastings of artisanal wines and wine pairing dining experiences in a serene setting.
Farm to fork dining experience in Gozo’s countryside
Discover a small, tranquil, almost mythical island. Gozo benefits from its deep valleys, rugged cliffs, crystal clear seas & beautiful beaches. Life moves at a leisurely pace, revolving around farming and fishing. The island of Gozo is full of history, culture, and long family traditions, making it a truly unique and amazing island to discover. Blessed with some of the best food in the Mediterranean visitors are invited to indulge in fresh, local, authentic food delights. We are able to set up exclusive picnics on cliffs, secluded beaches, or surrounded by ancient saltpans.
We tailor all picnics and can cater them to an array of menus from plant-based to fully organic, vegan, and many more options. Everything is taken care of, sustainably sourced, using no single-use items, and the countryside is left behind cleaner than before.
Local dining at Limestone Heritage
The Limestone Heritage is a former stone quarry. It is set in beautifully landscaped grounds surrounded by indigenous olive and citrus trees. The venue is ideal to host small to large-scale corporate events. It benefits from a backdrop of a typical Maltese farmhouse, a splendid waterfall, and steep stone walls that are ideal for projections. The venue caters to groups of up to 500 people and has a stylish marquee for a backup.
