located looking out over the harbour. Had drinks here a few times and dined once. Good varied menu and very reasonably priced for the quality of the food.

A very nice family run restaurant with great views across the harbour to Valletta. Good Italian and Sicilian seafood and pasta dishes and by far the best Tiramisu I have ever tasted!

very professional waiting service, everyone doing there bit and doing it exceedingly well. The pate was brilliant. My partner had the fillet steak which came rare and was melt in the mouth, I had the lobster ravioli which was full of lobster and lots of subtle back flavours. We shared the tutti fruitti dessert which was delish. Large selection of... More

We booked a table at the restaurant and were not disappointed. The food was very good. We would go again next time we are in Malta.

We had dinner in II Galeone. Everything was very delicious, especially the fish soup and the beef stroganoff with baked eggplant and potatoes. Moderate prices, esp comparing to other restaurants in this area. Highly recommend.

We choose this restaurant after looking at the menu. We were served complimentary bruchetta while we waited for our main courses of calves liver and veal with lemon butter sauce. Both dishes were cooked to perfection. Potatoes and a selection of vegetables were presented in a separate dish and again were perfectly cooked and piping hot. (Very unusual)! House wine... More

We arrived in Sleima today and have not yet explored fully. We walked passed many restaraunts but decided to eat here. We were not disappointed. We were brought bruschetta and a basket of bread while we made our choices! My original choice ended up my daughter's meal after the inevitable swap. All the food was fresh and tasty. We would...
