Enjoyable

Went for dinner and the restaurant was nearly booked out at 6:00 pm but the smiling waitress still managed to get us a good seat with views out to Dragonara. Fantastic food and good service.

We went here for lunch on our last day in Malta and we were pleasantly surprised. The prices of the food were very reasonable Spaghetti Bolognese and other pasta dishes were all around the 7-9 Euro mark and the portions were very generous. One of our group also had a calamari stuffed with tuna dish (around 18 euros) which again... More

Visited here twice in March; once for cakes and coffee, once for cocktails! It didn't disappoint on either front. The cakes were lovely with a great selection, and the views of the rocky coastline were great (especially appreciated on a windy day from behind the glass!). The cocktails were reasonable (maybe because of the exchange rate!) and good sizes. Didn't... More

Popped in with my wife on the off chance of getting a table. We were in luck and seated over looking over the sea. We both decided on the fresh sea bass. Ordered a bottle of wine and I had a couple of pints. The food came out perfect. So fresh and hot. All the waiting staff are really efficient... More
