This establishment has one of Sliema's best locations, however the food is very average. I ordered a chicken curried rice, which materialised within 5 minutes of being ordered. It is impossible to believe that the dish had been freshly prepared. The texture and taste was very ordinary. I suffered severe vomiting within one hour of leaving this restaurant.

A very good restaurant, the girls of my family took me there for my birthday. Great views and very good food. We had one little guy with us, he ordered from child menu, but ended up eating a lot of his mum's calamari - a speciality of this restaurant. The service was good even as the restaurant was full, and... More

I've read a few negative reviews about this place subsequent to visiting it, I think the lesson is to try some of these places anyway and see how you find it. Food was good, service was fine, and the view was pretty good, in fact its hard to say anything negative about our visit. One small mistake with the order... More

The title says it all really. In summer you are seated exactly at the water's edge with the beautiful view of Balluta bay/Spinola bay/Portomaso completely unobstructed. in Summer, the location is almost enough of an incentive to visit this place. However the food is nothing special, and the service was somewhat haphazard, to be expected as they seem to employ... More

We were very disappointed as had high hopes of this place. Ordered swordfish, did not mind the wait to be served but though the plates looked great, the fish was dry and was obviously frozen, not fresh. Some in our party didn't even finish their plate. The waiters were all untrained foreign youths who were nice but far from efficient... More

We went there on a Saturday, did a reservation beforehand. The table was situated near the window and we could see the view of St Julians and the prominent Hotels. We were up for a pizza however we were informed that pizzas were not available. I could see that at the beach club below, pizza was served. At least they... More

Don't go there!!!! I've been there twice. The first time I was very pleased with the place, the service and food, but the second time it was a disaster. I ordered a fillet steak well done and instead of having a nice good fillet, my fillet was cut in thin slices (not butterflied as many do it), and I couldn't... More

Ive been here on 2 separate occasions and was disappointed twice. The first was for a plate of spaghetti ai frutti di mare; seafood seemed to be straight out the freezer. The most recent occasion was with a group of about 8 people for a pizza. The food was passable but very ordinary. What really disappointed was the quality of... More
