Best neighborhood restaurant!

Gino and the staff are friendly and inviting. The food is exceptional and prepared fresh as you like each evening. One of our favorite neighborhood restaurants in Sliema.

one of Malta's best restaurants..great service, excellent food (we thought the main dish octopus outstanding) and a good choice of wines..we stayed with the local wines..when in Malta...! On a chilly,windy January night this was just the sort of place to hide out.

Friendly and welcoming. Good atmosphere and would recommend you book. Octopus was fabulous as was the rabbit. Both cooked to perfection and lovely sauce and vegetables.

As with other reviewers, this restaurant is the best meal I've had in Malta! I highly recommend the sauteed mushroom in white wine sauce for starters. Then get the king prawns or the sea bass for your main - such fresh seafood! Overall, amazing service and food! This is a must-visit when in Malta.

We were attracted by previous reviewers comments and weren't disappointed. We booked although it so happens that we didn't need to on the evening when we visited. Ambiance was lovely, service was excellent and food superb and plentiful. A little more expensive at 70+ Euros with a bottle of wine but worth it.

A great family run restaurant set just of Sliema strand, service is superb and the food is cooked to perfection. I recommend the beef filet steak, sea food platter and the duck tortellini You will need to book in advance its normally quite busy.

I found this on trip advisor and the reviews were so good I wanted to try it. I could get a table the first night I tried but booked one for the next night. We were not disappointed, the place only seats about 20-24 people and has a family feel with the owner front of house. He was charming and... More

Lovely place with a nice family atmosphere. The wine was great, food was excellent - the mushroom & strawberry soup was a pleasant surprise. Very nice indeed.
