SHELL SHACK & GRILL MENU

Veccja, St. Paul’s Bay

The Shell Shack & Grill menu was created to reflect the Mediterranean spirit and cuisine of the Maltese islands. That’s why we always use fresh, local seafood to give our guests the best food experience possible. The same applies to our Grill section, too: from our pan-seared Wagyu Steak to our Argentinian Black Angus, all ingredients are fresh and of premium quality, perfectly cooked and seasoned.
