So we started of with a SIMPLE Tomato bruschetta, the waiter came with the bruschetta after 20-25 minutes (but i dont mind the long time because i was with my family trying to enjoy the evening). The bruschetta was one of the worse one i ever took ! Dry with some pieces of tomatoes and funnly enough with olives !!!... More

while it is a good restaurant for people who eat meat, with meat selections covering the entire menu, for vegetarians, its no mans land. when the new menu came out, i was in awe, because i thought i found one of the only restaurants that had a super healthy all rounded vegetarian salad. Instead, i found a plate of lettuce,... More

We have been to Il-Fortizza several times, and have had excellent service every time we have visited. They have free parking for patrons (a nice bonus). The menu has changed slightly and become a more casual menu catering for a younger clientele (I feel). Ribs, burgers, pizza, pasta and grills. The more adventurous food such as kangaroo meat has gone.... More

I had try here a local speciality, in maltese rabbit pieces, and really special cakes. It was a real gourmet feeling.

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
