The hibiki Restaurant
Hello, today I'm gonna review one of my favorite restaurants on this lovely fish shaped island, the Hibiki Japanese restaurant at Fortina spa resort Sliema.
Lets start with what i liked:
1) The restaurant
It's really well decorated and the waiting staff is always really happy and ready to greet you in the best manner kindly consider this restaurant is in a 5 star Hotel.
2 The cook
we decided to take the Teppanyaki (I dunno what the hell it means) set menu where you sit round a table with a hot grill plate in the middle then a very professional trained chef comes in with his batman belt of knives and other culinary tools and greets everyone at the table (yes you will not be alone!!!!)
3) The food
The set menu can be normal or deluxe deluxe being more expensive by ? 10 which will include a miso soup (fish and tofu based) then after a choice of sushi, maki , tempura and shasimi. me and my partner opted for the shasimi and sushi i must advice these are raw fish and are delicious and remember I really ain't a fan of fish. after wards you have tiger prawn, beef, lamb, fish, chicken with different sauces accompanied by noodles and rice now the portions are small but i always came out quite full from there and with a jolly tummy :) finally you finish off with an included desert which I suggest take the fruit salad as it has dragon fruit.
4) The show
Yes the Chef cooks everything after the starters
in front of you while doing acrobatics and silly things like putting an egg on hit chef hat and loads its funny and really different.
What I did not like
1) The bill
The bill came bloody ? 72 euro for just the two of us I already knew it wasn't gonna be cheap but I really wanted to treat to her to some where different from the ordinary and nice.
2) The Teppanyaki way
Yes the fault of all of this but it is also understandable is that you cannot have a private dinner since your sitting along side other people.
I know it was expensive and it wasn't set as a romantic dinner but the food was really really good the service was top notch and the show was amazing so basically I paid for what I got and I don't mind i highly recommend this for special occasions not for every weekend of course as well go give it a try till next time :)
Also i know I right a lotttttttt and seeing all this text may look frighting but I love giving a detailed review so people that read it really know what there gonna have. Hope you enjoy my looooonnnggg review cya
