I went there with 2 other friends and the food was really good. Everything was just perfectly delicious. I really like the risotto they have, it looks simple when they served it, but taste really good. The steak was juicy and delicious. My tuna belly steak was really nice and tender. The cream brûlée for dessert was outstanding too. I... More

Small restaurant in St.Julians inbetween Portomaso and the nightlife district. The menu is small and selective - I had two starters of which one unfortuantely my was not top (this cannot happen at these prices!) whilst the other one was excellent. The main course was very good, service was top. Personally I think that the atmosphere could be improved. To... More

Saw the entry in Tripadvisor and found it was just 5 minutes from our hotel so popped in to make a hassle-free and welcoming booking. On the night we were shown straight to our table, offered drinks and talked through the menu. Good choice and some interesting options but not huge list which made deciding relatively easy. Some good specials... More

It took an hour to get our entrees. And the entree's were not great. I had the Tuna Special. We were expecting more. We came here from Paris and this was pretty awful compared to anything we had in Paris. Not impressed at all. The dessert was good but that's it. I can cook at home better than this place.... More

We had a 3-course diner with a bottle of Spanish wine for 50,00€ pp. They serve a gourmet cuisine for a reasonable price. We had a home made pasta as a starter and rabbit as a main course and it was delicious. The crème brulée was good. Recommended restaurant!

Tucked away in a side street - it's worth finding to experience an intimate, friendly atmosphere where the chef/owner not only weaves his magic to create mouth watering fare but also has a chat with you about how it was for you. Everything was so right we hope there will be at least one more chapter - if not a... More

1st class dining experience. Excellent food and friendly but professional service. Food was a little slow in arriving but the quality was exemplary, particularly the carpaccio of fish. Good value and we will be delighted to visit again.
