Reasons for trip

Picture sitting at a table for two, in the warm March sunshine, overlooking Marsascala bay and traditional brightly-painted Maltese boats. A perfect spot for leisurely lunch, Uncle Matt’s Kitchen is the ideal choice.

There are lots of restaurants along the main promenade, of course, but we were tempted by an interesting menu and the welcoming staff. We were both drawn to the description of their Spanish Paella, a mixture of chicken, chorizo and sea-food, although it was not what we had planned for lunch. So glad we did. This was beautifully served, a wonderful rich saffron-yellow plate of perfectly-cooked rice with plenty of chicken pieces, huge mussels and topped with an impressive king prawn.

For me, this was the best paella I have had, lovely taste and texture, and perfect balance of ingredients. Leslie agreed, although he said he would have liked a bit more sea-food, but overall an excellent choice. While we would normally choose white wine with a sea-food paella, we went with the Maltese Knight red wine which is soft and easy to drink, especially while waiting for the freshly-cooked food.

A perfect lunch in an ideal location, and at €11.95 each for food plus €12.50 for a bottle of red wine it was very good value. Definitely recommended.
