Dinner

Excellent Service. Great waiter Selimi. Great tasting food and fresh fish. We had the linguine with the lobster, as suggested by Selimi, turned out to be excellent. I would go there again

We went there last night and ordered sea bass off the menu at a fixed price of 22Euros and they tried to charge us 66Euros. The manager's explanation was that in his opinion the fish at 22Euros would have been too small as we were sharing (because we were not that hungry having had a meal earlier that day). He... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your first TripAdvisor review Ms. Emma M, though pity that it is not a good one. We are one of the few restaurants showing the transparency of the selected fish and its weight. Scale is next to the display and prices always shown on the specials board so the coast can... More

This restaurant is a cut above the standard Italian restaurants that proliferate on the island. The food here was actually better than a lot of food I've eaten in Italy. Good service and a nice wine list, price reasonable considering the quality of the food. Limoncello served iced, rather than with ice!

Ok so I've been here before and kind of knew what to expect. First time round it was a lovely evening. Today however I saw room for some improvement. First and foremost, I can't understand how a fine dining establishment allows kids... It was annoying and kind of ruined what could have been, romantic ambiance. Secondly, and this is something...

We had a fantastic dinner at this place eating fresh fish and pasta with seafood. The wine list is extensive and we had a real discussion with the manager about the Maltese wines and enjoyed one of the best bottle we had on the island. We appreciated the time and dedication from the staff to service us in the best... More

Simply choose your catch of the day from a display inside the restaurant and then ask for it to be cooked just how you like it. My sea bass fillets were perfect. My partner opted for a risotto dish which was also excellent. Don't be put off by the scaffolding outside - this is a quality restaurant.

We had eaten here last year so went again. Greeted at the door by the owner / manager. Stopped at the display of seafood to choose our meal and never looked at the menu. Red snapper fillet and smallest lobster. 4 x oysters to start. Oysters (from France) were Pacific oysters twice the size of any I had before. Fish... More
