One of the very few gems in St. Julian's

Outstanding food and really nice atmosphere. They also offer parking if you are lucky and the restaurant is not super super busy.

This is one of my absolute favourite restaurants. The food is always perfect, beautifully presented and I love how the menu changes with what's in season, the mood and current inspiration of chef Ivan. The service is always impeccable and the atmosphere relaxed and intimate. Highly, highly recommended!

The place requires a facelift, seriously but we could not believe the sophistication of the food. All dishes were passionately created to combine the freshness of the product with delicate taste buds. Mediterranean products with French tones. Assaggi is the way to go French in Malta. Keep it up.

Really enjoyed the place and the food...service is friendly and the atmosphere is very cozy....the Capesante: Fresh king scallops, truffle butter, fennel puree and parmesan was the best thing I've ever tried....and my husband also enjoyed his Gamberoni in padella. Very fancy good food at quite affordable prices!

I started with Jerusalem artichoke, caulifower and truffle soup, garnished with king scallop, followed by the rib-eye on the bone - absolutely divine!!!! Service with... More

Small cozy family-run restaurant situated in a quiet area of St. Julians. From the first moment you step into the restaurant you find warm and welcoming faces . Waitress will take you to your table and offers you the menu, which is every day slightly different, based on fresh meats . So you can be absolutely sure that just came... More
