had a lovely romantic dinner. food is very nice. Some dishes are expensive but menu` is varied enough to offer tasty options even for those who do not want to spend a lot. Setting is very nice, romantic seating outside with stunning views of much-desired yachts :) recommended. Really like the free parking offered, finding a parking spot elsewhere in... More

Not just the worst Chinese meal I have ever had, but the worst meal and service I have ever had. Cheap tasteless food, it was not even warm and when I complained to the waiter I was called a liar, then offered to heat it up. But after being called a liar I refused to even entertain the tasteless warm... More

this restaurant is in a lovely setting at the marina beside Hilton hotel. this is the positive part of the review have a look but do not enter. We had a beef dish chewier than bubble gum, a chicken dish that was like rubber and a pork dish that was dried out and tough. Low quality ingredients never make up... More

Nicely situated in the Portomaso Marina, with quite a few tables with great view, our visit in this restaurant reminded us more of a 'food court place' in a cheap mall or airport, than a restaurant in a luxury housing complex: The waiter was hard to understand, and he did not know what a smile or a welcome was for....

This restaurant is an all-rounder. Unfortunately it doesn't open in summer since the proprietor runs a similar restaurant on the Valletta waterfront instead. Pity.... its terrace overlooking the yacht marina would be wonderfully cool in summer, I'll bet. Parking is complementary and unlimited, so you could fit in a walk both before and after the meal if you fancy. Hubby... More

This restaurant serves very good Chinese food in large portions. The location of this restaurant is at Portomaso which is a tourist complex with a nice Marina.

Attracted to this restaurant as it offered a gluten free menu. It is the first time we have been to a restaurant which offered a separate gluten free section. Not a great choice to pick from and have tasted better but full marks for making an effort for all us Coeliacs out there. ( Our visit was slightly marred by... More

We thought we would try a newish Chinese restaurant, at the Marina, Portomaso St Julians called The Spoon, I have never tasted anything more like shoe leather, that should have been beef in some kind of sauce. The starter that was supposed to be chicken and beef satay was tasteless and then when we complained about the food the waiter... More
