We enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant. Our pick herb coated pork belly which was delicious and tender and a bottle of Isis Chardonnay. But the best part of this restaurant has to be the magical view of the gorgeous city of Valletta. Just perfect.

Together with my wife i ate here during our vacation at Malta. The staff was very friendly; the argentinian bottle of wine we chose was great and the food even better. Above all we enjoyed the view of Valetta's skyline; awesome! Thanks for this great experience.

Enjoyed this place in April in the veranda which enabled to enjoy the view alike outdoor seating but less cold. Of course the view is amazing and is a real bonus of this place. Service was excellent and very friendly. Food was nice enough but I would say on the average side. I'd still recommend this place, although not a... More

ThiS is a very nice place where to eat a very good pizza with an amazing view of Valletta in a calm ambiance. I've also tried red raw gamberi .... Simply delicious

The pizza's might have good flavor but the details of authentic Neopolitan pizza (like puffy crust around the edges with burnt spots) were absent. I also had the caprese salad with tomato and buffalo mozzarella the tomatoes were hard/inedible and the mozzarella was probably 3 or 4 days from being fresh enough to eat. That would never happen in Naples.... More

Went on a Saturday as part of a large family group. Were there early and got our orders in rather promptly. Service was friendly, courteous. Good starters with generous portions, not too long a wait between starters and mains but after mains, by which time the restaurant had filled up, over 20 minutes passed without any member of staff coming...

Food was good and we got what we expected, no more or less. Staff was friendly and although we waited a bit longer than needed for the first drinks the level of attention to our request were excellent. A major downside was that the ambience was marred by a noisy Rotary crowd.

In all round terms, if this weren't so formulaic as restaurants go, I'd give it a 3.5 to maybe 4 for being safe, reliable dining out. The staff were pleasant but also utterly indifferent. Although there were predominantly locals celebrating en masse as families and with dates, the service culture seems like one geared to transient tourist trade that hence... More
