This a little gem of a restaurant - it doesn't look too promising from the outside but it will blow you away.... the staff are charming and know everything about the food and menu. Good range of dishes, great fresh fish, if in doubt about what to have just follow the advice from the waitress.

Didn't book and were very appreciative to be found a table. Food, service and atmosphere were all first class. Husband had rabbit spaghetti and I had Cajun chicken which both tasted amazing and were the best meal we ate all holiday. Will book next time and certainly return.

A bit hard to find, but well worth it. Very good Maltese food, and friendly proprieters. Good value, too. An authentic experience in Malta.

Nice quiet little side street restaurant. Attentive staff and all in all a pretty normal good quality experience. Not excellent as many say - but better than the tourist traps along the Stand. Worth a visit definitely. Nice flavoursome home food.

We were very lucky there was only 1 table free in this small and cosy restaurant ! The atmosphere was super, very intimate. The owner was more than friendly and the food was delicious. In Il-Merell I had the best tuna steak ever ! The owner chose our wine and it was a very good choice. Two days later, we... More

If you are staying at The Palace, turn out of the hotel right, with your back to the Salisbury Pub there is a street in front of you, 3/4 of the way down is the restaurant. It is advised to book as it only has around 26 covers and is very popular. The starters were inventive and very fresh, my... More
