Nestled in the picturesque Spinola Bay of St Julians, Malta, MÉZ takes its rightful place as the top Indian seafood restaurant and bar in the region. It’s more than just a restaurant; it’s an exploration of the world of Indian Coastal Cuisine, shaped by the influences of the Indian Ocean.

Begin your journey with an ancient mariners’ map of the Indian Ocean, a tapestry of spices, flavours, and cultural exchanges that have defined our cuisine. MÉZ invites you to uncover the mysteries, embrace adventure, and discover the rich history that flavours each of our dishes.

MÉZ is celebrated as the top Indian seafood restaurant and bar in Spinola Bay, St Julians, a haven for seafood connoisseurs. Our menu is a treasure trove of offerings, sourced from the vibrant shores of Indonesia and Malaysia to the alluring landscapes of Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Kenya, and Mauritius, with India at its very heart. Each dish is a culinary masterpiece that showcases the flavours of the region.

But MÉZ offers more than just a culinary experience. We are on a mission to redefine the very essence of culinary exploration. Our goal is to rediscover the cuisines connected by the Indian Ocean, cuisines that have shaped history and rewritten the gastronomic rules.

Imagine the grandeur of the Indian Ocean’s maritime route that connected Rome, the Mediterranean, Northern Africa, Indonesia, and China, with India as its pulsating center. The exchange of cultures, spices, and culinary traditions along these shores is a testament to the power of the Indian Ocean.

In the 15th century, a new route around Africa, lead to the discovery of the treasures of Southeast Asia. Goa became the hub of a spice empire that radiated its influence across the Indian Ocean, from the eastern coast of Africa to the exotic islands of Indonesia.

The legacy of this maritime world can be tasted through the flavours that have travelled far and wide. Indian merchants introduced the vibrant aromas and tastes of their cuisine to Southeast Asia, especially to Malaysia and Indonesia, where Indian spice blends and the allure of black pepper quickly became popular staples, leaving an indelible mark on their culinary landscape.

Conversely, the influence flowed in the other direction as well. Southeast Asian cuisine introduced its own delightful flavours to India and Sri Lanka, where dishes featuring rice cakes and coconut milk-based creations remain dominant.

At MÉZ, we celebrate this rich and diverse legacy of the Indian Ocean. Our commitment is to offer you a culinary experience that’s deeply rooted in tradition and intertwined with the freshest seafood from the crystal-clear waters of Malta. Our restaurant, overlooking the Mediterranean, is not just a dining destination; it’s an opportunity to immerse yourself in the history, culture, and taste of the Indian Ocean world.

When you dine at MÉZ, you’re not just savouring a dish; you’re partaking in a journey through time and culture. We invite you to indulge in the exquisite flavours that this unique region has to offer and experience the magic of the Indian Ocean on your plate. MÉZ: Where every dish tells a tale, and every visit is a voyage of discovery in the heart of Spinola Bay, St Julians, Malta.
