Applications are now open – QA seal for Restaurants

The Quality Assured (QA) seal for restaurants, aims to help Maltese and tourists make an informed choice when selecting a place to eat. Since its inception, the QA seal has also been a way for quality restaurants to gain a competitive edge and to encourage a quality leap in the sector through the creation of benchmarks. Today 112 restaurants are QA certified.

The criteria of the QA seal cover all the essential elements that constitute a good dining experience, from the quality of service to hospitality, food and the overall environment of the restaurant.

The MTA has recently opened applications for a fourth intake.  One may apply online on or by sending an email to or personally by visiting the Quality and Industry HR Development Unit within the MTA.  Applications are to be submitted by no later than the 31st October 2016. 

The QA seal for restaurants is endorsed by the Ministry for Tourism and the Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association.  This MTA initiative is also supported by Marsovin.
