It's quite an achievement to get a table as there were lots of disappointed people who were turned away while we were eating. I had a fabulous beetroot and apple soup to start which was so delicious and comforting. My partner had a Maltese platter which was big enough for two people. I had the... read more

We chose this restaurant based on good reviews but were really dissappointed. My pasta was mushy tastless thing and traditional meatroll my husband had lacked the taste totally. Plase is nice, service was good and wines nice but food was below average.

Very good cooking. Nice atmosphere. Original Maltese kitchen. Not expensive. You have to reserve a table beforehand. Always full.

Tucked away up a narrow and unpromising alleyway, this friendly restaurant is Maltese to its core. It was full on the Monday night on which I ate there - booking advised. The diners were both local and tourists, and the decor in plain and simple. Fresh fish and rabbit were top of the menu. I opted for a Maltese broccoli... More

I visited this restaurant when my daughter graduated as a chemist. Food was very good so was the service. The place is small but very good value for money. I definetely recommend it.

As always friendly atmosphere, delicious food and good portions. If you dont eat big portions go for a srarter rather than a mains as they are massive. Specialises in certain local dishes. The dips are the best :-) good antipasto whilstcwaiting for the freshly cooked main cours with Maltese bread and galletti.

The service was really good well looked after and they also asked me if my meal was ok. As a catering consultant and I visit many restaurants with my work. This... More

We managed to get a last minute booking on a Monday night. Really lovely service - in fact probably the best service we had in any restaurant in Malta. We ordered the bread & dips to share. Wonderful warm freshly baked bread. I then had a tuna steak cooked exactly as I ordered it. Absolutely delicious. Service was friendly &... More

During my visit to Malta, I was staying near from this bistro. That's why it was possible to get a table so easily, without booking (my first recommendation is book a table in advance). I went there with some friends and I tried Seafood risotto and Rabbit with Rosemary and Garlic. They also offer good Maltese wine.
