We ate here on a recommendation from another couple we had met on the trip. I had the pizza with parma ham and my boyfriend had seabass which were both fine. We noted how slow the service was but we were happy relaxing with a bottle of wine and it didn't bother us. On the last night of our two... More

We had lunch here, and we were looked after so well - the service is excellent, and the staff very friendly and attentive without over doing it. Food was also very good - and the menu a little different from the usual. The views from the terrace area are beautiful.

I do not usually want to make a negative statement on premises, however like IP1972's comments, I have to write that the food delivery was terrible.

The proprietor was rather aggressive... More

It was crowded and there simply weren't enough staff to cope!! The food took ages to arrive and was disappointing when it did. They also forgot to bring the wine I ordered. I got an apology but really expected a glass on the house for an error that big!! There are far better places to choose along this stretch!!

This is across from our hotel in Sliema. Great place to stop for lunch, or an icy cold beer. Inexpensive, large portions, friendly staff

Been there for a quick lunch but never the less it was great. My salad was top notch. Good job! Service was good. A waiter took our order and checked on us several times. Smiley confident and welcoming.
