Quintessential Ghar Lapsi restaurant Ta’ Rita Lapsi View revealed that it will be temporarily shutting down ‘for developmental purposes’.

The restaurant’s last day of operations before this break will be next Sunday, 2nd October, although management did not clarify how long this break will last.

“We hope this process will pass as quickly as possible so that we can serve you the same traditional cuisine whilst welcoming you into a new modern concept – a modern environment which still preserves its authenticity, heritage, and history,” the restaurant wrote on social media.

“We thank all our customers who have supported us as well as our hard-working staff and management. Thank you for your patronage, friendship and support during this great experience,” it continued.

The restaurant went on to look back on its long history, having first opened its doors just under 100 years ago, in 1927.

“It is through our great team and loyal guests that we have had such a great run. Although we have encountered many challenges, we could not be prouder of the great food we serve and the great people we have had the blessing to work alongside with – not to mention the many vendors and customers we have gotten to know and love,” Ta’ Rita Lapsi View wrote.

The post elicited hundreds of reactions and dozens of positive comments from its loyal clientele.

“I love coming to your restaurant. Its 70s-style atmosphere is my favourite thing about it,” one commenter wrote.

“We will certainly miss the great food, the rabbit in particular,” another added.
