Superb meal and choice of wines

We opted to sit inside on a hot sultry night and was fortunate enough To be sat under the air con, which was a bonus. The food was excellent, stuffed chicken leg and veal escalope were our choices of main with a mixed salad and saute potatoes. The wine list was extensive and I'm sure it would... read more

Although the restaurant was empty we were grudgingly given a table at the rear of the restaurant. The staff were having a great time shouting at each other and generally showing off but paid scant attention to their few customers. When the food came it was OK, there was nothing wrong with it but it was not special in any... More

In the very hot summer months and late in the evening (about 23.00), after watching a performance at the Valletta open-air theatre, it is much of a surprise to find a restaurant open that also has efficient air-conditioning, for a change. The staff found a table for us inside without any delay. The food was excellent and the service was... More

Nice thing - no kids allowed, it is made very clear on the phone or at the entrance of restaurant. We went there for lunch, good we made a booking as the restaurant gets full at this time. We ordered risotto with salmon and penne with mushrooms, accompanied by water. Everything was very good, nothing to complain. Introduction of the... More

This place is so relaxed, the service so good, and the food amasing that we stayed much longer than we meant to! The wine was fantastic and they have a wide selection. The Quaill starter was beautifully cooked and the Chicken leg main was massive and packed a real punch. These guys clearly know what theyre doing with Maltese food... More

We had a quick dinner at this place. The service was very friendly and welcoming. We had a shared starter and went on with pasta as a main course. Food was delicious, service and ambiente nice. A bit pricy compared to other nearby options.

Brilliant food, great atmosphere, great staff and sensible prices. What more could you ask for ??? The chicken stuffed with Maltese sausage , together with a great selection of potatoes and veg was outstanding. The local red wine was a steal at 11.95 euros.

We were recommended by our accommodation to go here. We arrived without booking and were luckily given the last table, so might be best to book in advance as it is popular. The food was fantastic, we had the specials and I can't complain about any of our meals. Service was attentive and friendly, giving recommendations when asked.
