2018 has so far been a fruitful year for Surf N Turf. Being recognised and awarded is the ultimate recommendation. Chef Kerstin Manicolo and Front of House & Sommelier Joshua Borg’s dedication and passion have paid off big time. Garnering a handful of high profile industry awards in a short space of time is an impressive feat. Kerstin and Joshua are perfectionists, and that is the cornerstone of their success.
At the 2018 WRMC (Wines and Restaurants of Malta.Com) awards ceremony Surf N Turf won the WRMC Blue Riband Award 2018 for Best Restaurant. The prestigious award is based on a combination of service, cuisine, ambience, overall quality and management in relation to the restaurant’s concept. On a personal level, Kerstin was bestowed with the 2018 WRMC Top Maltese Chef Award, and Joshua won the 2018 WRMC Top Front of House Manager Award. With a hat-trick of awards already under their belt, Kerstin and Joshua must be proud of their achievements.
The WRMC awards ceremony and presentation was held at the Hilton Hotel in January 2018, and the awards are based on professional surveys and inspections. Qualifying establishments need to get a score of at least 8.5 out of 10. The list is updated continually as the survey team make follow up inspections. All the restaurants that make it to the awards have satisfied high standards of cuisine and service. The cuisine standards include preparation, presentation, service, atmosphere and ambience. The harmony of the wine list and food menu and value for money are also taken into consideration. WRMC is Malta’s leading wine, and restaurant review website and the restaurants reviewed are rated for their overall dining experience.
Surf N Turf can look forward to a bright future. Besides the WRMC awards, the restaurant was awarded the MTA (Malta Tourism Authority) Quality Assured Restaurant 2018 Certificate of Excellence. Surf N Turf also won the 2018 award for Commended Wine List by The Definitive Good Guide to Restaurants in Malta and Gozo. Kerstin and Joshua have proved their concept works.
