Commando sits along the winding road that leads from the beautiful village of Mellieħa, through the lush valley, and down to Ghadira Bay. Nestled within a tastefully-restored 300-year-old building, Commando boasts a proud culinary tradition dating back to the wartime 1930's. The restaurant’s ambiance has inherited the original building’s cosy charm, which has been further accentuated by a non-invasive and tasteful decor.


Tempered under Michelin Starred chefs, Chef Damian Ciappara leads the brilliant team at Commando. Even on the busiest of days, this small team operates smoothly and in perfect coordination, like a finely-crafted timepiece. The menu is carefully assembled to represent both the traditional and the experimental, presenting a variety of delightful tastes, textures and colours, while daily specials add a sprinkle of excitement and novelty for regulars.

In February 2022 Commando was awarded by the Michelin Guide with a Bib Gourmand for the third year running, making it one of just four restaurants in the Maltese Islands to hold this distinction. To be considered for a Bib Gourmand, Michelin inspectors seek out restaurants that offer an exceptional quality of food at a more approachable price point. Since 1997, "good quality, good value restaurants" have been highlighted using the Bib Gourmand award.
