Porto Maltese offers your choice of over 20 types of fresh, top-quality seafood in the portions you choose, prepared in any of four artful and totally authentic Mediterranean styles, or in any other way you prefer, and served by our friendly and attentive staff in a casual, yet elegant atmosphere that evokes sea, sunshine, and good company!

Porto Maltese is more than a great restaurant; it is a distinct and exciting approach to Mediterranean cuisine developed in the seaports of the historic island of Malta, at the very heart of the Mediterranean! In the mid-1980s this authentic approach to seafood began to inspire restaurants from Barcelona to Rome and all across Europe.

At Porto Maltese, we have a uniquely varied, flexible, and authentic menu. We display over 20 varieties of fresh fish and shellfish on ice. Each choice is labeled and priced by item and by weight, so that you can choose exactly the portions of seafood you want. Do you want a whole fish or half of it? Seven shrimp, or three, or two? A whole octopus or just one tentacle?

We prepare wild-caught or organic seafood in four healthy, traditional styles, perfected in over 20 Mediterranean countries …

  1. Traditional Charcoal Oven. Simply charcoal grilled. The seafood gets a smoky flavor enhanced by spices and marinades.
  2. Sea Salt-Encrusted and Flambéed. A delicious and spectacular way to present and enjoy seafood.
  3. Steamed. Simple yet healthy, flavorful and delicious.
  4. Na Lesho. From the Dalmatian Coast, Na Lesho style uses olive oil, garlic, vegetables and white wine in a mixture that is reduced to just the right consistency and flavor.
  5. Porto Maltese Style. Grilled & sautéed. Served with baked potatoes Porto Maltese.
  6. Foiled. Wrapped in foil with white wine, sea salt, olive oil, thyme and finished in the oven.
  7. Parchment Paper. Charcoal grilled then wrapped in parchment paper with sautéed vegetables and herbs. Cooked in vegetable broth.

OR… tell us your whim or show us your recipe and we will make your choice of seafood your way! Our wait staff, and if need be, our chef, will find out just how you want it!

We also offer your choice of salads and vegetarian dishes, sides, meats, poultry, desserts, and excellent wines! In fact we have three types of bars: a raw bar, a wine bar, and a full bar!
