Went a second time and enjoyed it just as much as the first. Lovely food, great choices and a nice intimate atmosphere. Everything about it has that personal touch - the service and the food. Not expensive so, go on, treat yourself to something a bit special.

I and all my family have been using this restaurant constantly for over 8 years and it is one of the most consistent restaurants I know. It is a real family affair with Chis and his wife running the front of house and Grandfather Chef Patron and grand son cooking in a very individual style. The salmon pancakes make a... More

4 of us dined here last night. Just happened to be walking by and liked the look of the menu. We sat outside and the food was excellent. 2 of us had the chicken stuffed with garlic and cream, 1 had the veal with cream aside and 1 had the rabbit stew. Perfectly cooked, attentive service and good value. We... More

Popped in for a snack whilst visiting Sleima. Reading the menu we were hooked. We ordered white wine and this came with a taster snack.I had the best calves liver ever and I'm an aficianado. My husband had stuffed chicken breast which was actually moist. Veges were excellent. We'r not pudding eaters, but had to try them. A small selection,... More

I tried Il Galeone last week. A friend had recommended it to me, and he was right. The waiters were friendly and polite, the service was good: we didn't have to wait for long and the food was delicious. I had read some reviews about very tasty calamari, so we decided to go for them. And it was a very... More

We visited this restaurant because of good reviews on TA. The meal we had was fine and enjoyable- no complaints at all. However it was a shame that there were very few customers especially for a Friday night. The restaurant next door was packed. Why? Consequently it was very quiet and there was little atmosphere or ambiance. There are many... More

I had the lobster in ravioli for starter and the veal for main course and found both to be lacking in flavour. The were both well cooked but with such good ingredients the meal was rather bland. We had a bottle of the excellent Maltese wine. We paid over 70 euros and returned to the Victoria where our friends had... More
