A good Restaurant

The restaurant is small but the food specially fish is excellent and fresh. I suggest the fresh clams spaghetti which are very well cooked as an italian starter. Fish like the Spigola was great and tasty which I suggest.

Once again this restaurant is fabulous we have been numerous times & never been disappointed with the quality of food & service. What Simon produces in his kitchen is just amazing. You must give this a try. Thank you Simon & staff see you soon, from the Golding family.

Been here a couple of times, more recently with family to enjoy a main meal (only had snacks before). The menu covers both snacks, toasties etc to main meals all at reasonable prices. There is seating inside and out and with lovely views of the harbour, outside is obviously more popular.

Decided to try this place since it had good recommendations. I had some muscles as starter and octopus as main course. The food was very good and cannot complain about the taste of any of my plates. The portions are quite small and for someone who loves to eat you wont get full with a starter and main :) unfortunately... More

The steak here is amazing! Always go here on our last night. The chef Simon will always accommodate your needs, we had someone that don't like onions so he made the sauce without them.

I visited the restaurant using the gusto card scheme and they told that gusto card aplies only on mains. Normally all restaurants add starters in it. In additional we had octupus in garlic and penne with sea urchins. The food is good but the portions are small for the price you pay. Not well recommended

We eat here probably once or twice a year when we visit Malta. They never disappoint. I had the fresh Lampuki - it was filleted, came with salad and vegetables and was faultless. My wife had the lasagne which she said was exceptional. I cannot recommend them highly enough - great value.

We were lucky to get an outside seat here just opposite the harbour. One of the locals willingly gave up her seat to allow us to do so. Both me and my wife had fillet steak with mushroom sauce and it was excellent. Service was also very friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.
