On arriving for lunch we asked a waitress for a table for two and told her we were looking for a table under a fan as it was about 35 degrees . She nodded and started walking ahead , we followed , she kept on walking to other people that had just walked in and totally ignored us. Eventually we... More

I must admit that I expected better from this restaurant/pizzeria, which has so much potential primarily due to its prime location on the Sliema seafront. For a start I think lots more could be done to create better atmosphere: more subdued lighting for sure (those bright chandelier lights are so not on), calmer background music at a lower volume (we...

Ate here a few times and the food was delicious. We had mixed success with their cocktails (and we were thorough in our research here) but the bahama mama was delicious! Lovely views too so dont be put off by plastic tables and chairs because this is a nice restaurant.

Nice summer outdoor eating. Relax, unwind and watch the world sail by while eating and drinking in a lovely restaurant. We have eaten here many times, the greek salad is huge, in fact all dishes are larger than imagined. One thing - you won't leave hungry! Prices are good, for the quality and quantity you get you cannot complain. I... More

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
