If you are smart, you are family. If you insist, you become permanent family. I've not met a more consistent chef in my local world than Anton. Lovely. Divino. Don't miss it.

I have frequented this restaurant on many occasions. This time I took my brother and his partner there. As always we were made to feel so very welcome by the head waiter. For me as a returning customer and for them as newcomers. They also went again and reported the same warm, attentive welcome and good food once again.

A very good restaurant in its category. We had carpaccio and prawn pasta which were both very good compared to other restaurants we tried during our stay in sliema. The service was better than average!

I went here based on the trip advisor reviews that I read. I am rarely led astray by TA but my meal was uninspiring. I may have just ordered the wrong dish, or caught the chef on a bad night, but my octopus risotto was mediocre at best, it was far too salty, and that dominated any other flavor that... More

Staff are very friendly, polite & professional. Our drinks were always poured for us. My wife was always accommodated for her gluten free needs also. Excellent wine &... More
