Restaurant busy, were advised that there would be a wait - no problem there. Partner had Gluten-free spagetti bolognese. Huge plate of pasta, poorly seasoned and with little sauce. In this case less would be more. Please sample your dishes - the pasta was bland beyond belief. My calimari was also not top of the class.

So the starter was quite small for the price they charge (we had grilled octopus). The wine menu is great but pricey. I ordered the steak medium rare and it literally came out burnt on one side. When bringing this to the attention of the wait staff, she stated she would replace it, but we had already waited an hour... More

The view and location help but it's the undeniable friendly staff and fresh food that make me return at least once a week. If it's with my family (also my little terriers) or friends it is always the best place to unwind!

Excellent food, surprising menu, very decent prices, good location, friendly service, only the house wine (Maltese white) was a bit watery. Very recommondable.

We ended up going to this restaurant twice in a week it was so good. I might even go as far as to say I had the best pizza I've ever had here! The staff were very friendly, the food was excellent value, and the views were excellent. What more could you want.
