Good but not exceptional

The place seems to be very popular, with some rather obvious consequences: both the service and the meal is a bit more "fast-food style" as it could be expected in a traditional restaurant. It's OK if you are in a hurry but if you are looking for a tranquil place to dedicate to your partner and... read more

My 8 pcs group had a recommendation to visit The Avenue. It was definitely the best choice. Great dorada fish, Citadella - fantastic Maltese white wine. Very friendly staff.

I went to the Avenue a couple of times and the food never fails to impress me. During my last visit I ordered the Tagliatelle alla Crema di Noce and it was absolutely delicious. I loved it so much I sometimes dream of that plate since I never tasted anything like it! Obviously you have to love nuts and I... More

The location is not the best being near a road but the food is really tasty and the staff really professional: two very important points!

The exterior and interior aren't the best reflections on how good their food really is. I went there with three of my girl friends and we all loved what we got. Get the Penne Arrabiata! It was delicious! The staff is brisk, but the food is great!

Have been visiting them for a year, and the quality of food and service is always excellent! Usually i eat the pasta, that is always cooked for perfection. The staff is also very friendly

Friendly staff (even remembered by one of the waiters who served us previously and asked us how we were - the little things matter). Fantastic choice and so reasonably priced. Example of this main pasta dish, best pizza ever and half... More

Unfortunately a numebr of restaurants in the Paceville/St. Julians have a bit of a reputation as many of them cater for tourists where the quality is not necessary the best! However The Avenue is an exception with good quality dishes for decent prices and a rather varied menu! Highly recommended.

Always a good choice in Paceville. Their menu varies from Burgers to Pizza and Pasta. This time I opted for a starter and a pasta as main course. Be prepared, the portions are abundant. All was very delicious.
