Great casual dinner

We like to go there as it offers good value for money. It is a family run restaurant that serves good food in a relaxed environment. So far every time we went there we ended up satisfied. Keep it up.

I went to Grabiel for Lunch on Saint Paul's feast day and decided to eat outside on the Terrace because the weather was warm. The service was very good but the food was underwhelming. Grabiel has a reputation as a fine restaurant but the lunch menu on the terrace is not fine dining. We both ordered the fish and chips... More

Chicken with fresh mushrooms, fresh vegetables and spring potatoes were really good. Fresh, coulorful and tasty. Asian platter much below average. Much too deep fried in size of an appetizer. Just a pitty! Service was all right. White wine had a good temperature. Me husband will never go there again. In my opinion he should have complained. Unfortunatelly he decided... More

We decided to change from our usual place to eat and what a disappointment! The food wasn't great at all! I had carbonara and it tasted like raw eggs!!! And my other half had a mixed grill which was more like a swimming pool of grease! The staff were pleasant though so cant fault them, maybe we were just unfortunate... More

We had excellent lampuki and stuffed squid served with beautiful spinach cooked in garlic and cabbage frittata, washed down with Gavi wine served at a perfect temperature. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was convivial. Reading some of the other reviews here, it would seem some folk have an axe to grind; don't believe a word of that nonsense.... More

Starting off with the positives: food was good, maybe not outstanding but good nonetheless. Furthermore it is of great value, prices include not only what you order but a massive array of sides including fresh salad (lettuce, rucola, tomatoes...), baked cauliflower, grilled zucchini, baked or fried potatoes... However do not expect anything in terms of ambiance. The restaurant decor is... More

I would not recommend it for any special occasion, but it's a good dining out option. There is a lot of space, both in and outside, view is nice at daylight.
