Lovely family restaurant with a warm friendly feel to the place. Staff were very friendly and genuinely happy that you choose to dine with them. Food is beautiful also. Would defiantly recommend this place to a friend.

Me and my boyfriend visited this restaurant yesterday evening and it was great! Staff are very welcoming, great atmosphere and delicious food! We ordered soup of the day as starter, and the suckling pig and pork fillet as main course - everything was cooked to perfection! We definitely recommend this place!

My boyfriend and I went here for a delicious dinner, a nice bottle of wine and dessert. We sat outside at a front row table with a view of Balluta Bay. The food was fresh, creative and flavorful. We had a really enjoyable evening. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Would happily return and recommend.

On our last night in Malta we were looking in St Julian's for a restaurant. Little did we know that we would stumble across our best meal of the trip! We ordered well with the suckling pig and a signature pasta rosette. Both meals were excellent and left us typing this review whilst waiting for our dessert.... Something we never do.

Ate here twice over the course of the trip, multiple seafood and local pork choices as well as a range of other dishes. A good range of desserts also. Both meals were to a high standard with efficient service.

I would say from my experience this was the best restaurant in St Julians. The service was very good and the menu was limited in choice to a few well chosen dishes. A marked difference from the majority of eateries in the town offering a vast range of meals that must come straight out of the fridge.

Oh my word! This place is quite possibly the best place I have eaten in the 10 days I have been here. The staff are so attentive, friendly, helpful and a great sense of humour and banter. Sat outside looking over the harbour so glad we spotted this just off the main road. The food was so tasty I would... More
