The Black Pearl Restaurant & Pub


Mediterranean Bars and Pubs

A restaurant setting does not get much more original than this. A hundred year old schooner (wooden trading yacht) standing proudly overlooking the surrounding yacht marina and the Valletta fortified bastions. Its many indoor and outdoor possibilities make it a great venue for events too.

The Black Pearl boasts a truly unique venue housed within a 100 year old wooden schooner perched on land at the edge of the Msida Yacht Marina. The a-la-carte restaurant is situated on the Black Pearl's upper deck which offers superb views of Valletta, its fortifications, the harbour and the Yacht Marina. The lower deck, which still has the ship's original timbers in an authentic and elegant setting, is used for private functions, weddings and parties of all types. This also comprises the 'Captain's Bar' and a spacious terrace.

The Black Pearl serves Mediterranean style cuisine with an accent on fresh fish and seafood. A healthy choice of delicious Pastas and tender Meats are also served. All dishes are prepared with the freshest and finest ingredients in a wholesome and uncomplicated manner.

The Black Pearl offers an unbeatable combination of good food and warm and friendly service in a unique and stunning environment. Have a look at the virtual tour that shows off the beauty of this ship - restaurant - event venue.

The Black Pearl is managed by an experienced team who also run Ferretti in the South of Malta and Haywharf beneath the historic Valletta bastions.
