Went there during the week, so we were on our own for most of the night. Food was perfect, orders on the table included Duck Breast, Pork Tenderloin & Marinated Chicken Breast. All were really good. Desert (Chocolate Brownie) and the service were also faultless... Even the bread was really fresh and soft. Also, the view at night is great.

Two years ago I hosted two lunch parties for my wife's birthday and the experience on both occasions was superb. The food was first class and the service was attentive without being intrusive.I returned to Malta this month and visited the restaurant with friends and it was every bit as good as it had been then. Nowadays it is rare... More

I had already visited this place before so was looking forward to going again. My partner and I decided to go there for Sunday lunch. We ordered risotto ai gamberi e zucchini (risotto with prawns and marrows) and linguine ai frutti di mare al cartoccio (linguine with seafood cooked in foil). We also ordered water and wine followed by dessert.... More

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
