Went there with my girlfriend for cocktails and dinner. We went at around 6pm as there is an offer, two cocktails for the price of one till 7pm. When we asked the waiter, she had no idea and neither did her colleague. I would expect them to be informed of their own offers!! There were quite a few waiters idol... More

Friendly staff, good varied menu, the food was healthy, tasty and lots of it. Ate once inside the conservatory then a few nights later in the main restaurant. Service was prompt and friendly and once again lots of good food. Not haute cuisine but hits the spot. Location at the sea's edge great.

Went there for a relaxed early dinner with my boyfriend yesterday. Also to sample the cocktail offer, which promised two cocktails for the price of one until 7pm. First of all, we noticed that there were many many waiters, yet none of them seemed to be paying us any notice. When we finally managed to call one, she was not... More

The vegetarian selection here seemed great but all in all this was a bit disappointing. Great views but the food was pretty average. It does, however, keep busy as do most places with similar locations on the sea front. The staffing could be improved to cope with all of the customers.

Homemade burgers are actually 'Big Al's' prepacked burgers and the chicken on the pizza is prepacked aswell. Avoid this place if you want good food

Although this restaurant is situated on the promenade with great sea views, the food is acceptable/average but nothing 'special'. At the time we visited, the restaurant was busy, however, the staff seem a little disorganised and meals very slow. We had to ask for the table to be cleaned and repeatedly had to ask for drinks. Our bruschetta starter was... More

We chose here for the views but were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food- Maltese dished. The pitcher of sangria was great value too!

Whilst The food was perfectly acceptable it was nothing special but drinks were far too expensive. 4 euro for a beer !!! Guess... More
