How Grain Came to Be

Grain Concept

Inspired by the tailors of old whose workshops were located on Merchants Street, a few paces away from our 5-star boutique luxury accommodation Rosselli, our restaurant was given the name of Grain. Like a tailor, the chef is skilful with his hands, and his artistry is reflected in the finished product. When cutting fabric, a tailor cuts along the grain to make sure the material does not fray. The chef works with grain to produce dishes that are wholesome. The analogies don’t stop here. Both crafts need skill, the best possible materials to make sure the end result is of the highest quality, while attention to detail in each craft is crucial. Our Grain concept is divided into three distinct brands, each unique and offering something for every gourmand. Our flagship haute cuisine restaurant Under Grain, one of the first of only five restaurants to clinch a MICHELIN Star which it has retained for four consecutive years, promises you a refined dining experience where the food is matched equally with designer ambiance and service excellence for an all-round experience. Classic dishes have been reinvented into contemporary works of art, introducing the combination of new ingredients, carefully curated and paired with stellar, professional service.

Our fashionable and convivial restaurant, Grain Street prides itself on serving flavour-loaded plates of authentically tailored cuisine in the form of a sharing concept. Tuck into colourful and appetising spreads of premium dishes as you watch Valletta life go by. With a rich variety of vino at your disposal, you can look forward to distinctive, characterful, and stimulating pairings to accompany each dish, worthy of the MICHELIN Bib Gourmand accolade, just three months after opening. Discover Over Grain this summer, a seafood rooftop lounge with panoramic views of Valletta and Sliema’s skyline, located in Merchant Street Valletta. Brought to you by the talented team behind the MICHELIN-awarded Under Grain and the MICHELIN Bib Gourmand Grain Street, this concept revolves around seafood dishes that feature delightful culinary surprises. Enhancing the experience is a curated selection of premier champagnes, wines, and artisanal cocktails. Immerse yourself in the timeless charm of the capital city while savouring sunset vibes of al fresco dining at Over Grain.
