We loved this place last year, and nothing has changed that this year. Pierre, the owner, has a great cafe bar set in a gorgeous square within Rabat. Dorothy and Emma look after their customers superbly and the food they prepare is fantastic. A must for a lovely lunch and a bottle of wine, with great hosts.

Ordered coffee and soft drinks which were delivered quickly and the coffee hit the spot perfectly. Also order a couple of slices of cake between us, one was delicious but the other tasted... More

We came upon this restaurant by chance, without checking tripadvisor. We were just strolling around the Medina, and on a whim, since it advertised authentic Maltese fare, we'd give a go. Now that I have seen other reviews, I agree entirely about its 5 star rating.

My recent visit to Malta was made memorable by my visit to this restaurant. The meal was perfection in its presentation it's taste and its service. I had a Maltese salad, every constituent fresh and flavoursome accompanied by a bucket sized glass of wonderful warm local Merlot. We sat at a small table looking out on an empty sundrenched Mesquita... More

Had a spot of lunch in here today. Such a quaint restaurant, just off the Main Street. We had the Italian platter for 2 with wine. Very friendly service, very reasonably priced..... wine, bread, cheese, meats - so simple.....what more can you ask for ! Perfect.
