Fantastic restaurant, great value for money and lovely people and food. A cut above the rest and well worth the visit.They even cooked us something which was not on the menu.

Mamma Mia Simon never lets you down! Been here frequently the service and food have always been to my expectations but having the host really giving you personal attention is really a unique exception! nowadays this is a rare occasion but I for one would do my best to experience it again!

Back from Sweden our Landlord invites us for a lunch at Ximo. Tiny place with great food and good service. We had fresh grilled fish and steaks, together with the side dishes a filling meal without any complains. Finally a piece of chocolate gateau and a coffee, well prepared for a nap

What Simon prepares in the probably smallest kitchen in Malta is a dream. Very much recommended for fresh fish, spaghetti rizzi, king prawns and other seafood. Or even for bruschetta and various homemade dishes.

Like most restaurants in this town it is quite small and fairly ordinary to look at but don't be fooled. We had the best steaks in years in Ximo. They were big, juicy succulent and tender. Cooked to perfection with good service and reasonably priced. Lovely

Always enjoy Zimos - lovely welcoming atmosphere and the best pasta at very reasonable prices. For a treat the steak with mushroom sauce is fantastic.

A cosy restaurant! weather permitting you can stay on the outside otherwise inside not too much space but if you find a place the atmosphere is very welcoming. The food especially seafood is either fresh or not available. Wine list not vast but adequate. Service is always up to your expectations as Simon the host will always see to it... More
