Found this place by a chance in the sun at a quiet romantic square. The Maltese Platter with some wine was perfect! The chocolate cake as dessert was amazing! Very nice service, quick serving and good prices! Highly recommended!

We found this place by chance. Lovely little spot, we only had a Maltese platter as a light lunch but it was lovely. Service was quick and friendly. Worth a visit!

WE loved our stop for lunch here, it is tiny, a pair of twins appear to run it?! Food was fab, lots of local stuff and it would appear local people in it which must be a recommendation!

This restaurant is one I could have easily entrenched myself in all afternoon. A lovely greeting as you enter is matched by the best customer service I came across on the island.
