We have often walked past this busy little restaurant on the sea front. Service was great and friendly. Prompt, attentive all the way through our meal. The tomatoe risotto with Parma ham was excellent and the bruschetta a worthy complement. Lots of choice, great selection of desserts as well. We sat inside as it was busy outside. They do breakfasts... More

We passed this restaurant daily walking out from Le Meridien hotel and it didn't seem like much, looking at the tables on the pavement. However, we saw the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a go for lunch. We are glad we did. We had a table inside, which seemed calmer than the street-side tables. We were given... More

Best location few meters away from the harbour. Very stylish and atmospheric - one can see that a lot of effort has been put into design and a feeling of the place. However, out of 6-7 dishes we ordered, at least 3 did not felt right: one was half-undercooked and half burnt, gnocci were glued together and more dry than... More

I had to catch a quick lunch in Spinola in between business meetings and ordered the cheese burger. It was probably the best burger I've tasted in Malta in years. No kidding. I had visited the restaurant before and had pasta and it didn't register as memorable (although it was still pretty good!) but I just had to rave about... More

Fresh, tasty and interesting dishes. Good place to catch up with friends. Too close to the busy street for comfort but then again, I prefer staying indoors when visiting this place.

We ended up here after trying to get into several restaurants one evening, all were closing or very nearly closing, we had left it extremely late to eat, we had passed U Bistrot and it still looked extremely busy, so decided to go back to see if they could fit us in. Fitting us in was absolutely no problem, they... More

Overall great! I have been several times for any type of meal: produce is fresh, seasonal and served with great care. A few places in Malta where brunch is a delight.

My hubby and I went for a long stroll to find somewhere lovely to eat. As we were in Malta you are very spoiled for choice! We came across this little restaurant and sat outside overlooking the harbour. The food was incredible, you have to try the Tuna steak which is the best I have ever had. The service was... More
