This year, Hammett’s Mestizo in St Julian’s and Hammett’s Monastik in Sliema are crafting two exclusive Valentine’s dinner experiences with special set menus that promise to dazzle and delight.

“At Hammett’s, we're all about creative dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients sourced from our local farmers,” shares Executive Chef Jorge Lugo. “This Valentine’s, my kitchen team and I are excited about each of the menus we are offering, which feature an array of dishes that are perfect for sharing together. From course to course, expect fresh flavours and delicious surprises, all delivered by our award-winning team in our stylish restaurants. This promises to be a truly enchanting experience for our Valentine’s guests.”

So, let’s explore how Hammett's is marrying culinary bliss with romantic indulgence for two unique Valentine’s dinner experiences.

Spice up your Valentine’s with a Latin American feast

Located in the stylish Number 11 hotel in St Julian’s, Hammett's Mestizo has made a name for itself as a social dining and drinking restaurant that blends culinary inspirations from Central America to the Caribbean, the Andes to the Amazon, and even Patagonia. With a plates-to-share concept, the restaurant invites guests on a journey to savour the authentic flavours of Latin American cuisine in a refined casual dining experience.

This Valentine’s, Chef Lugo and his team proudly present the Besame Mucho set menu, designed to spark romance and tantalise taste buds with delightful Latin American treats. Highlights from this sharing set menu include the Scallop Tiradito, a zesty starter combining cucumber, ginger, coriander, and onion.

The Ravioli a la Huancaina offers a spicy twist on traditional ricotta ravioli, zhuzhed up with yellow chili and prawns that add a fiery kick. Meanwhile, the Mero en Coco features fresh grouper served alongside a rich meunière sauce and exotic coconut rice that really amps up the flavours.

Prepare for a sweet ending to your culinary love story with the dessert, Fruta de la Pasion. It's a chocolate fondant paired with passion fruit and vanilla ice cream that will leave you craving more. As you savour these delights, complement your dining adventure with a fine selection of South American wines. And if you fancy a little extra kick, the bar offers a unique array of premium Latin American spirits and love-infused cocktails.

Surprise that special someone in your life with the Besame Mucho menu, at just €69.00 per person. Reservations are limited, so secure your spot for a night of unforgettable love and flavour at Hammett’s Mestizo.

A Continental menu made for amore!

At the charming Hammett’s Monastik, a different culinary adventure awaits. With breathtaking views of Valletta across the tranquil Marsamxett Harbour, this sister restaurant follows the plates-to-share concept, but the focus shifts to a modern continental European dining experience. Here, the kitchen team puts a fresh spin on traditional dishes from mainland Europe, promising a delightful rendezvous with flavours that are both comforting and contemporary.

Monastik's Valentine's Day menu showcases an array of exquisite dishes. A medley of mouth-watering starters includes Stracciatella served with olive tapenade and a touch of fermented chili for pure flavour magic. The Scallop Carpaccio sees shallots, bitter orange vinaigrette, and radish come together for a delightful surprise in every bite.

For mains, vegetarians will fall head over heels for the Celeriac Terrine, featuring a lemon parsley cream, pomegranate, and a citrus gel. While the Beef Rib dials up the flavours with chanterelle, spinach, potato truffle, and an intense red wine jus that will make you swoon.
