Positioned on the seafront at Tigne, Sliema, this restaurant is surrounded by other restaurants but stands out by providing excellent value. Excellent food is matched by excellent service, good ambience and prices that are much lower than other similar restaurants.

A lot less touristy than the other restaurants along the front nearby - while still obviously catering to tourists, it felt like it was run by locals and wasn't particularly gimmicky. Food was fairly simple and good - my friend and I both had veal, although she had the 'cafe Paris' sauce and I had the lemon one. Both were... More

We had our last dinner in this restaurant with my family during our trip to Sliema. According to my husband, it was absolutely the best restaurant during our trip. The service was very friendly and the atmosphere cosy. The food was excellent. Pastas were delicious and my sole (fish) was very good too. I can really recommend this restaurant.

It's still on the Main Street but a bit further along. I had vegetable soup - almost a meal in itself followed by a veal dish and plenty of vegetables. The Maltese house red was palatable. Finished with a tiramisu. All very good and not overpriced. Lovely to have linen napkins instead of the usual paper variety of indifferent quality.... More

Within walking distance of the Fortina resort we popped here to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food and service was excellent.

Good food, lovely atmosphere. The inside is themed like a galleon hence the name. Relaxed, nicer place to eat than the busier bistros nearer to the centre of Sliema.

We ate in here one night and although the food (rabbit ravioli) was excellent the service was rushed and not very friendly. There was a big local group in the same time as us so perhaps that was why. It was the quickest meal we had in 2 weeks !!

We were there 2 times. The first time, the pasta I got was one of the best I had ever! Second time we also had a very good meal, both were the best we had in Malta. Decor is very nice, the staff attentive when needed and invisible when not. Reasonable price. Average house wine.

Nice to find a decent restaurant among the others on offer of Burger King and McDonald's! Decent menu and OK prices for drinks, highly recommend for couples.
