Floriana, Malta – [11 December 2023] – The Phoenicia Malta, a beacon of timeless elegance and luxury, proudly announces the official introduction of its latest culinary jewel, Contessa. This reimagined dining venue sets a new benchmark for high-end Southern Mediterranean cuisine, elevating the Malta dining scene to dazzling new heights.
Contessa emerges from The Phoenicia Malta’s cherished Phoenix Restaurant, reborn into a year-round gastronomic destination that promises a symphony of flavours for both locals and international guests, elevated by tableside theatre and beguiling signature dishes. With its doors now open, Contessa invites diners to revel in the beauty of its surroundings, whether under the azure Maltese sky or the starlit nights or within the beautiful internal dining room that have become a signature experience of Phoenicia Malta.
“The Phoenicia Malta has always been synonymous with exceptional guest experiences. With Contessa, we are enhancing our offerings to ensure that our guests have the privilege of enjoying the finest dining experiences regardless of the season,” says Robyn Pratt, General Manager of Phoenicia Malta. “Our new all-weather Conservatory means that, whatever the weather, guests can now enjoy one of our most-beloved featured – the Phoenicia Terrace.”
Contessa’s design intricately weaves the warmth of Maltese hospitality with the fresh flair of modern dining, enabling guests to bask in the beauty of The Phoenicia Malta’s gardens and the Mediterranean beyond. The terrace has been transformed into a stunning botanical-garden-inspired conservatory, providing a weather-proof, yet equally enchanting dining environment.
Mark Shaw, the owner of The Phoenicia Malta, says, “We’re delighted with the dedication our culinary team has shown in curating the Contessa menu, which reflects our commitment to seasonal, high-quality dining. This week we were also very proud of the team as we picked up The Definitive(ly) Good Guide 2024 Award for Best Food in a Restaurant. Now this culinary excellence will continue, and we will only keep improving from here. This is a significant moment for us as we continue to invest in creating exceptional experiences for our guests.”
Contessa’s menu, a celebration of Southern Mediterranean produce and culinary creativity, will be refreshed seasonally to reflect the best that the region has to offer. This commitment to innovation is a testament to The Phoenicia Malta’s enduring dedication to excellence and its pledge to provide guests with a dining experience that is both exclusive and memorable.
