What Makes Risette Ideal For A Christmas Gathering With Friends & Family

A get-together with your loved ones is always special but at Christmas time, it’s extra special.  Even if you can’t all meet up on the big day itself, you can still make any lunch or dinner in December the most perfect Christmas celebration. Risette at Casa Ellul overlooking Old Theatre Street in the heart of Valletta will make that day the most wonderful Christmas gathering imaginable thanks to the beautifully festive surroundings and the excellent food, and countless thoughtful touches.

This year allow us to bring you the most wonderful Christmas imaginable.  Enjoy the service, warmth and comfort that Risette is renowned for, along with the cosy, heart-warming and effortless festive feel that will ensure one golden moment after another. At Risette you can bring together your friends, colleagues or family to indulge in the most delicious, freshly-prepared dishes that have been paired to perfection with exceptional wines.  The fabulously festive atmosphere and the impeccable service will take your dining experience to the next level.

The Christmas Programme At Risette – Silver, Gold And Platinum Dining Experiences

Our head chef, Andrew Borg, has carefully designed sumptuous menus for our Christmas Programme that are just right for every festive occasion. Ditch the dry turkey and sprouts, and opt for stylish, indulgent casual fine dining instead. We have on offer marvellous suckling pig, stone bass and oysters to create a luxurious dining experience that you’ll remember for many Christmases to come.

The set festive menus include two Silver and Gold options of 3 courses, and a very special Platinum taster menu. Such tentalizing dishes include for example the ‘Venison and foie gras terrine, green apple and mustard’ and ‘Entrecote of beef with roasted heritage beetroot, aged comte’.  Remember that Christmas is the time to eat, drink and be merry so there is always room for that glorious dessert especially since Risette serves up desserts to die for such as ‘Madagascan vanilla and salted caramel mille feuille, hazelnut ice cream’.

Create Your Own Magnificent Private Dining Experience This Christmas

With our intimate private dining room at Risette, you can have your own space to celebrate Christmas or the festive season and can adapt the menu to your own tastes to suit everyone in your group. Host up to 19 guests in “Room One” for your family, friends or corporate  Christmas meal. Or why not hire the whole restaurant for up to 30 guests and invite partners along too. Perhaps you crave traditional touches and simply must have “pigs in blankets” or would like to experience a particular kind of bird roast – goose, duck, or partridge perhaps? At Risette we are ready to make your Christmas culinary dreams come to life and will discuss your ideas with you and source special ingredients from our boutique producers.  Maybe you have special dietary requirements or would like a fully vegan supper… whatever you want for that special meal we are here to make your wishes come true this Christmas time.

Make Sure You Toast The Season With A Special Tipple

With Yuletide cheer in your heart, raise a glass or two to the season of goodwill with your loved ones.  Our exquisite menu can be complimented with the perfect wine, champagne and dessert wine as chosen and paired by our sommeliers.  Whether you choose our set menu or customise your own, we will recommend the best wine or champagne for your taste. There are three wine packages available from €25 per person so you’ll find the ideal match for your style of party.
