Went here with my partner after a visit of Mdina and we were chased in by the rain. We were already looking for a place to have lunch and it looked nice from the outside. The restaurant is located in the old gunpowder rooms of the city which creates a nice historic atmosphere. The food was delicious. we both ordered... More

Just dined at this established restaurant. It had been a while (a few years I guess) that I have not had the opportunity to dine here. I had a bit of apprehension, I have to admit. It turned out that the apprehension was not necessary. It was four of us who had 3 different mains and 2 different starters. All... More

I like this restaurant a lot. Because of fantastic food and very cosy location. Would recommend to couples for romantic evening. I did arrange group dinner there and all were pretty much satisfied.

What a great restaurant, when we arrived we were shown up to the roof garden and it was just lovely, food was excellent and beautifully presented. Wine and food both reasonably priced so much so that we made it a long lunch with extra wine. Would return without hesitation.

We asked if we could sit on a table in the sun, bearing in mind there were only 4 people in the restaurant and was told no they were setting the tables for the evening. We had to wait far too long for drinks so didn't go back. Staff were not particularly friendly.

The food is pretty good, although I've had better elsewhere for the same price. That said, I tried the snails as starters (my first time), and it was quite good. The environment is really nice and the staff was friendly enough. I was actually surprised to find out that the dining area is made up of several different sections; an... More

The evening exceeded all my expectations. The food was impressively delicious and the service personal and impeccable throughout and the ambience created was definitely memorable. The only issue was that other tables where served bruschetta and we weren't. Overall the food was excellent, atmosphere was great and will definitely go there again in the near future.
