The experience

An Authentic fine-dining
Experience in Malta

ION Harbour is a one Michelin Star Restaurant in Malta offering a unique dining experience that ventures beyond the usual boundaries of fine dining in Malta. Multi award winning Michelin starred chef Alex Dilling runs the kitchen at ION Harbour, situated on the stunning rooftop of Iniala Harbour House in Valletta – Malta’s iconic capital.

Whether seated indoors amongst impeccably furnished interiors or out on the sun-lit terrace, diners can enjoy impressive views of the majestic Grand Harbour – particularly magical when lit up at night. It’s the harmony between setting and attention to the finest of details; from artfully assembled dishes to impeccable service, that makes the ION experience so distinctly memorable.

“While we are the proud holders of one Michelin Star for the past 2 years in succession – our motivation remains to continuously provide our guests with an unforgettable gastronomic experience” – Alex Dilling
