Some inconsistencies in the past but didn't disappoint on last few visits. I guess you need to know what to order. Fish cooked to perfection with a lot of taste. Still a bit expensive but most restaurants in Valletta are a rip off.

We ate here twice during a recent visit to Malta. Great, fresh,tasty seafood each time. We ordered a combination of small plates and appetisers in order to get a wide variety of tastes and we were consistently pleased with all the shellfish and fish. Service was very attentive and smooth.

Fumia... Francesco and the staff (usually all women) are an incredible team. They work as hard as the chefs in the kitchen to make the evening an experience! The food is fish and past cooked the sicilian way. D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. I'm an atypical italian. I do not like pasta. Well I can swallow it but it wouldn't be the first thing... More

We spent 5 days in Malta and tried numerous of the restaurants. Our last evening we had an incredible dining experience. The staff was great as was the more than ample wine list. The fish was displayed for your inspection and prepared exactly as it should be according to the menu. I requested a pasta dish not on the menu... More
