This year has been an Annus Horribilis for the catering industry as the pandemic has shut down restaurants and forced many into closure. But the passion for eating out among our foodie community remains undimmed with more than 2,020 votes cast during the month of September by those looking to celebrate the very best of the industry.
The Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Restaurants in Malta & Gozo annual restaurant survey supported by the MTA, Global Payments and Nestle was conducted last month and asked regular diners out to rate their favourite restaurants that they had visited in the last year for Food, Service and Ambience and to give their comments. This innovative annual study involves researching over 2,000 catering establishments in both Malta & Gozo.
With our objective in mind to establish Malta as the gastronomic centre of the Mediterranean, the people’s choice ensures an objective list of the very best in catering across our islands to date.
The results of the survey are analysed by an impartial, independent market research company, based in US, which specialises in data analysis and the top rated 150 restaurants will then feature, at no cost to them, in the upcoming edition of The Definitive(ly) Good Guide to Malta & Gozo 2022 which will be launched during the lavish Restaurants Awards Gala Dinner ceremony held on Monday 6th December.
Below are the winners and all those shortlisted in The Definitive(ly) Good Guide survey. Heartfelt thanks to all those who participated in the survey and sponsored prizes & congratulations to all!
