Grain Concept

How Grain Came to Be

Inspired by the tailors of old whose workshops were located on Merchants’ Street, a few paces away from our Rosselli, our restaurant was given the name of Grain. Like a tailor, the chef is skillful with his hands, and his artistry in 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 flagship haute cuisine restaurant Under Grain, one of the first of only five restaurants to clinch a Michelin Star on the island, promises you a refined dining experience where the food is matched equally by 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 with farm to table meats and poultry. An alternative to fine dining is Grain Street, a fashionable and convivial eatery with flavour-loaded plates to enjoy in any order you wish, whether dining solo or in good company. Watch the ebb and flow of Valletta life pass you by as you tuck into a colourful, appetising spread of authentic dishes designed to raise the spirit and satiate the senses. With a rich variety of vino at your disposal, you can look forward to distinctive, characterful, and stimulating pairings to accompany each dish. As an innovative, exclusive and luxurious space set on the rooftop of the five-star AX Rosselli, Over Grain is where connoisseurs of refined al fresco culture can leave the crowds behind, float above the skyline and discover a higher state of unwind with handcrafted cocktails, good music and fresh bites.
