We enjoyed our dinner here - my partner said his dinner (pork with pear and honey) was excellent, I had the fish platter which was good too but didn't surpass the beef olives I had on our first night in Malta. I am sure however that the beef olives/bragioli would have been excellent if I had ordered them here. We... More

This is a very cosy and friendly restaurant which has an extensive menu including some typical Maltese dishes. The food was OK but didn't live up to expectations.

My husband and I really enjoyed this restaurant; authentic Maltese food served and excellent classic table service but in a comfortable environment. Meal included a plate of Maltese starter snacks, generous side dishes, and even a complimentary limoncello after dinner. Wide assortment of dishes on the menu, and everything we ate was delicious. Highly recommended.

The restaurant opened at 6pm and we were so hungry we were in at 6:01pm. First night in Malta and we thought we would try some traditional local food. The fried rabbit was my main and although it had lots of bones it was very tasty. Service was ok now that i look back and think about the overall waiting... More

We had a great time there. The restaurant is nice and cosy, really warm. The staff was absolutely adorable (we had the sweetest waiter in the world!)... We were offered Maltese starters while we were waiting, it was delicious... The dishes were really good too. A bit expensive compared to some other restaurants, but it's ok. It's a good place...
