Maltese cuisine is rustic and based on the seasons. Traditional Maltese food is the outcome of a long relationship between the Islanders and the many civilisations who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries. This combination of tastes has given Malta an eclectic mix of Mediterranean cooking. Some of the typical Maltese dishes are Lampuki Pie (fish pie), Rabbit Stew and Kapunata (Maltese version of ratatouille).
There are a lot of restaurants that specialise in Maltese sea food. The Mediterranean Sea has a lot of variety in sea life. The Marsaxlokk fish market on Sunday morning is a place where you can see for yourself how varied the fish catch is.
