Great view; good food

We were seated on the terrace outside for lunch. It was a bit hot, considering it was August at mid-day. Service was good, although slow at times (we waited around 15min for a waiter to bring us the dessert menu); food was good but the view is exceptional.

Went to this restaurant to celebrate my wife's birthday and we had to postpone the dinner some days as we did not prebook for the Saturday, so book in advance people! They offer classic italian cuisine with antipasti, focaccia, pasta, meat and pizza... The pasta menu was a little limited but if you like seafood you will find something. The... More

Group booked last minute of late dining. Staff helpful and kept the kitchen open. Fantastic views of Valletta. Staff and service friendly but slightly disorganized. Food acceptable but nothing special. Lost points as the most fundamental point in servicing a group is that the food arrives all at the same time. Unfortunately this was not the case and some of...

Flippin diabolical! Again. Wanted to give this a second chance. Failed miserably . We ordered a few starters amongst us to share. One of which was the fried calamari . More rubber than John McEnroe's tennis balls. Sent them back, slight improvement on next batch. All of us had fish bar one, we were five. All bone dry except one... More

In Malta parking is HELL. Not here because there is complimentary parking. The view from the terrace (facing towards the South) is excellent so if you are in company either try to get a table with W-E seating or else choose the S-facing chair/s. The selection is reasonable. Pasta is cooked al dente. Pizza is what it should be (possibly... More

Prices were reasonable, food was good - especially pizza. 3 courses, two persons, wine and water -> less than 70 euros. Good value for money. Service was great. Amazing views to Valletta from the terrace.

We've had a pizza and it was really good. One of the best pizza we've ever had. It also has a beautiful view if you dine outside.
