I ordered raw salmon on a lava rock and I had a lovely time cooking it. It was a very nice experience and the food was really good. I would definitely return for more fun cooking food on the lava rock, however I hope that the service would be better than that on my first visit. The staff was not... More

I'll start by saying the waiters (Malta) quite unfriendly / cold an the female waitress was the only saving grace. She was warm and friendly. Our food came out at different times with the male waiter carrying one plate at a time. I had what I found to be fake Ravioli, the pasta was too thick (actually frozen pasta)and filling... More

Attended Lava Lounge for the first time on a Friday evening. I will not return. I ordered FRESH lobster ravioli. The dish arrived in seconds. Not a good start for something that is suposedly fresh. as soon as I took the first bite my immediate reaction was this is not a lobster filling but RICOTTA.... I called the waiter immediately...

First of all when we sat down and saw the menu and chose our dish, the waiters took long to take our order in fact i had to grab their attention myself. The food did not take long to arrive but...

The food was awful, I am not a fussy eater and if I'm hungry enough I'll put up with poor quality but my dish was disgusting, I could not eat it, it was riddled with salt and nothing about it was nice. My husbands dinner was not much better, his rabbit was overcooked, its was extremely dry. We have never... More

We enjoyed a lovely early dinner, with a generous heap of chorizo in wine as starters, mouth watering tender beef fillet we could cook to our liking on the lava plate.. and profiteroles for dessert ! Such an enjoyable experience! Also, the service was brilliant. Well done. 5* ! Will recommend it any time..

Went there with friends just one time and sat outside on the terrace. The waiter was nice, but we had to wait a lot for our food. We ordered some starters and burgers. The ruccola salad was old, the starters were quite small, the burgers were just average. One good point: there is good Wi-Fi signal, better than the other... More

We are always on the look out of something new in dining... I actually heard about Lava stone when I was in Dubai so decided to give it a go. Am glad to find Broken back Shiraz on the wine list... had Chicken liver pate and chorizo in wine for starters. Both are generous in portion. Had Fillet steak for... More

Went with my girlfriend and I must say I way impressed. It was a lovely meal cooked on a lava stone by myself. I liked the experience and the ribeye was exceptional as well as the sides. It was fun and there was good service.
