For many local foodies and fish lovers, Terrone in Marsaxlokk is an absolute must-visit, but the last few months have proved a trying time for the cosy eatery and its team – first being forced to shut down due to COVID-19, and now having to close the doors to the Marsaxlokk restaurant permanently.

Chef Patron Adrian Hili reveals that the lease on the property is set to expire at the end of October, and with the owner not willing to extend, the search is on for a new home for Terrone.

It was just last February that the eatery known for its mix of Maltese and Southern Italian influences was awarded a coveted Michelin Bib Gourmand – one of only three restaurants in Malta to receive the honour – so this certainly comes as a blow to the restaurant and its fans.

So, as the talented team continues to welcome guests since it’s reopening in May, Adrian is busy looking for a new spot from which to continue Terrone’s journey – and while wishing him luck on his quest, we have no doubt it’ll be every bit as good as the original! He also reveals that he’s working on some exciting new concepts in partnership with a local entrepreneur aimed at showcasing traditional local produce – we can’t wait to see what he has in store.

We’ll keep you posted on the new location as soon as we know!
