Incredible service, incredible food.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and was incredible. I ordered the tuna steak which was on the specials (€20ish). I can honestly say I would have paid double. Served with salad and roasted potatoes it was cooked to perfection. I was tempted to order it again! When they... read more

I had lunch in a medium-busy July day. I didn't like the food; it was simply tasteless. The fresh squeezed juice seemed a glass of warm baby food..

Had lunch here, Burger was ok ... was under cooked ... even the waiter asked if I was ok with it... guess he wasn't sure! Carbonara was a big portion for lunch, but was stodgy and not that great. Always looks to be busy though and staff were nice enough.

Went twice to this little gem , fresh and tasty food cooked from scratch and really good value. The octopus risotto is divine as is all the salads. Worth a visit to sit outside and enjoy the view.

We go here all the time for reasonably priced, tasty meals including great breakfast on a Sunday morning. Good selection of meats, fish, pasta and salad (not always easy to find a salad as a meal in Malta). Reasonably priced, nice staff, good location (if a little close to traffic, but same as many other Maltese places). Can't fault it!

Only nice thing about this place is interesting simple style how its made. Restaurant wasnt busy, had few people outside, few inside. To get the menu took 15min. With excuse that all of them are out. Seriously? Do you have 10 menus in total? To order drinks had to stop waiters and after to ask if drinks are coming soon.... More

My friend and I were greeted by the friendliest of staff and were continually impressed with their service throughout the night. We both ordered salads (tuna and salmon) and both agree that they were the best we have ever had. Great sizes and great price for the quality! Will definitely be going back in the next few days :)

After arriving to Malta and not having eaten the airline food, who can blame us, the family was quite hungry. Now at it was 4pm everything was closed but we stumbled upon U Birstot. That was nice surprise. Very good local food, the fish soup was very nice. We also had the risotto, a bit bland but really filling, the... More

On the face of it, this restaurant should have been really nice, but it was far from it... - Long wait for food. - Ordered 3 cokes, 1 had a straw, ice and lemon, 1 had a straw, ice but no lemon, and 1 had no straw, no ice, no lemon. - Fruit flies flying around the table. - Carbonara... More
