Frequently Asked Questions – everything you need to know about the Chamber of Mysteries.
Here we answer the most popular questions people ask us through their inquiries. We address the Transport, the Menu, Beverages, the Show and questions about booking the award winning show The Chamber of Mysteries below.
-What transport do you provide?
In order to keep costs down for our guests, we provide a shared transport system, meaning that our transport (usually a small coach or mini van) will pick up guests from various hotels on the night. Collection times vary but range between approx 6:30 pm to around 7:30 pm. An approx time of collection will be communicated as soon as we confirm your booking.
-Can you provide a non shared transport alternative?
Yes we can provide private transport that will collect you or your group exclusively for an additional cost. The additional cost varies depending on where you wish the transport to pick you up and the amount of people. Please inquire during booking.
-I have my own means of transport, can I use my own transport?
Yes, if you have your own means of transport you may opt to not use our transport. Just inform us during the booking process.
-Is there public transport available to and from the venue?
Public transport now has a route that passes close by the venue so getting to the venue is possible by public transport. However when the show finishes it would be more difficult to find transport back since this would be late at night and no public transport passes by after the show. Therefore we do not advise using public transport unless you are ready to use a private taxi to return. The bus route is 64 and the stop is Hobz. (correct at time of update 29-9-2016). You can check the route here under Qormi: https://www.publictransport.com.mt/en/route/64
-What sort of cuisine does the restaurant offer and do they serve it?
The restaurant, Razzett L-Antik, specialises in traditional Maltese cooking. The service is a rustic type service and food is served as a family style service. On Fridays the menu is a set menu with a vast choice of starters, mains and deserts. On Wednesday nights the style differs and the restaurant offers a traditional buffet, meaning you will be able to go to the buffet counter and choose from the various options available.
-Is the Wednesday night Traditional Maltese Menu` suitable for vegetarians or those who do not eat meat, fish or pork?
The menu` offered on a Wednesday night is not very suitable for guests who do not eat meat, fish and/or pork. The restaurant can provide a vegetarian alternative, however we would suggest you visit on a Friday night. Also, for the less adventurous we would suggest you choose the non traditional night we offer on Friday.
-What alternatives do you offer for vegetarians?
A special vegetarian main dish can be especially prepared for guests who do not eat meat or fish. This has to be pre-booked and you can indicate this on our online booking form.
