St Paul’s Bay is a fishing village characterised by bays and inlets full of traditional Maltese Luzzu fishing boats. Located on the northwest coast of Malta, St Paul’s Bay lies along the bay’s southern shoreline. St Paul’s Bay has a rich history dating back to 2000 BC and is named after St Paul, who was said to be shipwrecked on one of the many islands dotting the bay. The Maltese believe St Paul introduced Christianity to the local population himself. The history of the place makes for a lovely location, perfect for a restaurant.

Surf N Turf Restaurant in St Paul’s Bay – Seasonal Menus
Once you feast your eyes on the menu, there is no denying it is something extraordinary and uncommon in Malta. The food dishes are beautifully presented with striking colours and presentation to accompany the exquisite flavour. The menu only contains fresh and seasonal ingredients. The large water tank contains live lobsters, which are one of the main ingredients of the signature Surf N Turf dish. The half lobster thermidor combines with USDA medallions of beef fillet, with buttered asparagus and thyme jus. You can combine that with starters such as French Gillardeau oysters, which are considered the very best. You can go for the fresh black Angus carpaccio beef fillet adorned with mini-cress, and crushed pistachios, along with oven-roasted fresh cherry tomatoes, all drizzled in extra virgin olive oil. Or why not try the incredibly delicious fresh salmon carpaccio, which is smoked at your table with Allier oak. You can try Maltese fresh pork, slow-cooked for 24-hours, and for pasta lovers, you cannot miss the hand-made ravioli accompanied by traditional Maltese sausage and French goat’s cheese. Deserts change frequently and are always original and unique with delicacies like Valrhona Dark chocolate fondant accompanied with Amarena ice cream. The perfect wine is suggested by sommelier Joshua, for the ideal pairing of wine with your dishes.
