The Preca sisters (Ramona and Roberta) both worked at their family restaurant Tal-Familja in Marsascala. They were both in their mid-twenties and at such a young age one would easily be tempted to think that it was there that they cut their gastronomic teeth. In truth, it transpires that they were already veterans by this time after having spent much of their childhood fiddling in their father’s kitchen at the mythical King’s Own Band Club in Valletta.
It was there that the girls learnt their ropes under the keen, imposing watchful eye of their father Charles, helping out in the chopping of parsley, capers, olives and any other ingredients which would adorn the club’s mouthwatering appetizers.

The Diacono family is somewhat synonymous with food. Grandfather Charles Wirth, a banker by profession, had a passion for good food, not to mention for having a good time too. He involved himself in the opening of catering establishments in Valletta and Buskett. Needless to say that this love for good food, inherently rubbed onto his daughters Rita and Therese who in turn did not miss the opportunity to do the same with their children. Rita, with the occasional help of her eleven children prepared an average of 14,235 meals a year just to feed her family in what was a very large kitchen by today’s standard.

The feelings that the Grand Harbour brings have been inspiring for The Harbour Club, and have driven us to develop a restaurant that rewards our diners with a holistic experience that influences all our senses.

Our ability to provide this experience in a carefully converted warehouse that was built by the 64th Grand Master of the Order of Malta in 1712, gives our diners a unique dining experience. Indoors, one may enjoy a cosy interior, decorated elegantly with a recycled deck of an American ship.
