I had never tried a tasting menu before but this wine bar/bistro had so many good reviews that I felt I had to try it. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed and the food was uniformly excellent - I even ate the tuna ravioli and I don't like tuna. If you have food allergies, don't worry:... More

We were a party of 8, all of us thoroughly enjoyed every delectable course which were devoured rapidly! The food was traditional Maltese, as each course was served the name and ingredients were translated into English by our waiters.The staff were very friendly, and we were not rushed,as can happen in some restaurants, it was very leisurely, we cannot remember...

Dish after dish of delicious morsels for you to try. We loved it so much we booked to visit again on... More

A quirky concept restaurant with fantastic charm helped by shabby chic surroundings and accessories. The concept being that there is no menu and the chef delights you with a succession of tasty morsels. The food was delicious. As 'pescatarians' (fish eating vegetarians) they accommodated us well including completing our meal with complimentary truffles in case we felt we'd missed out... More

We dropped in here after looking at a few places along this street, all with good reviews. We had a great evening. The concept is that this restaurant offers a tasting menu, so choices are taken out of your hands & you are presented with a steady stream of delicious tastes. We had a lovely evening and found the staff... More

This is such a lovely restaurant. It’s not too far away of Teatro Manuel. We went there on a Saturday night, after having been at the theatre. It’s a nice tiny little restaurant. Quite quirky… we ordered the Maltese tasting menu. It was divine! There was antipasto, aljotta (the Maltese fish soup) and many other local dishes. I haven’t eaten... More

There is no printed menu......the food just keeps coming...a sort of rustic tasting menu. Not haute cuisine ( and doesn't pretend to be ) but tasty , filling and traditional. Proper Mediterranean food. P.s. Do not miss the homemade truffles with coffee.

An evening visit to this small restaurant in two converted cellars in valletta was a surprise. The menu consists of a series of small dishes with traditional (and sometimes more modern) Maltese food washed down with excellent wines. The service is friendly and attentive without being too stuffy and the decor and ambience were reminiscent of old Maltese family houses.... More
