After reading some of the reviews, I honestly can not understand what all the excitement is about? I went there in July with my family. My dad ordered the chicken Caesar salad which was mainly a sad looking plate full of whitish, bitter lettuce, 3 tiny pieces of chicken breast, and one and a half cherry tomatoes. After ordering the... More

Service is awful. Waiter who was wearing no uniform (probaly the owner) literally threw the menus on the table. Then we ordered pasta al pollo (specifically penne) and came out with tagliatelle instead. We complained but decided it was not worth it to wait for a change of plate although staff offered. Grabiel special burger was quite good for its... More

Having a trip to Marsascala to walk along the promenade and relive a moment from a holiday there some 20 years ago we decided to stop an take a bite at this restaurant. To be honest - we just picked the restaurant due to it's location to the bus stop - however we were very pleasantly surprised on the standard... More

Good choice of food. Had lamb chops and there were 4 of the plate. Very enjoyable. Unfortunately the place is on a busy round about so it's very noisy with all of the traffic during the summer. Service is good and food arrives quickly. It is close to the playground and the bus terminal so very convenient if you are... More

This place has a great location but nothing can be said about the rest. Food is not of the best quality and service lacks. Can definitely do much better.

So far have eaten here once, very good and have often after shopping stopped here for coffee. As the weather was getting hotter, before my next trip I asked on Q&A Tripadvisor if they did Iced Coffee? I received a very quick and polite reply saying that they did and you could have the option of a vanilla scoop, which... More

Very welcoming staff, great atmosphere, food well presented from a vast selection. Well prepared and with value for money. Very good wine selection which is actually available not only on list. I would recommend restaurant to others.
