The old Villa and Balluta Bay as backdrop has seen many a happy couple tying the knot here. The brasserie offer outstanding food in a lovely setting. We choose this as our last night meal on holiday and it did not disappoint. A large selection of wine always helps..You are also slightly elevated with a great view of the bay.

Evening with friends. Long waiting time and poor service. Felt like we were forgotten. The food was bland, luke warm and not exciting at all. The dish that should contain hazelnuts did not even have a trace of hazelnuts. The dish with pulled beef must have been micro wave heated. When the food was finished we entered the vacuum stage....

We booked 2 days in advance, as we weren't sure how busy it was going to be - a very pleasant young lady took our booking. We were promptly seated on arrival - there... More

The staff was basically 3 inexperienced young men ( one of whom can barley speak a word of English). we had a table for 10 people, the largest in the restaurant, and after waiting 90 minutes the starters arrived.... at least half...
