Ask anyone in the catering business about “Noni” and you’ll most definitely be met with a knowing nod and perhaps a story from the kitchens.

Award-winning Chef Jonathan Brincat, also known as “Noni”, is the founder and co-owner of the restaurant with the same name. He first started working as a Commis, where he helped prepare food in all areas. After gaining valuable experience in different roles at the kitchens of five-star luxury and gastronomic establishments, Jonathan moved to London to work under Michelin star chef Gary Hollihead at the Corinthia London.

Subsequently, he returned to Malta and opened Waterbiscuit in St. Julian’s as Head Chef, which was a runaway success, yet this didn’t stop him from exploring opportunities to further his career in Australia.

Upon coming back again to Malta, Jonathan worked in several highly-reputed restaurants, but it wasn’t long until his dream got him thinking about opening his own place. Having set his heart on Valletta, he waited until the ideal location opened up and once 211, Republic Street, became available, everything was ready for Noni to open its doors.

Joining Jonathan on this venture is his sister Ritienne, who is the restaurant manager and has over 12 years’ experience working in the high-end food and beverage sector, as well as a tightly-knit staff that shares a passion with doing things right – the first time round – both in the kitchen and front of house.
