Very clean and very good.

Nice Location and the food was excellent. Also good value for money. The service was also very good and it's also a very friendly place to say the least. The good thing about this place is that there is plenty of parking in the Balzan square or just round the corner.

Perfect for a relaxed evening; the restaurant is cosy and has a charming atmosphere. Our meal was good and well priced. The only complaint is that the menu is a little limited. However, for the price we paid, it was definitely a worth while experience. Would recommend for dinner.

Fra Giuseppe is situated quite centrally in a small town just beside the parish church of Balzan. Although it is in the middle of the town, Fra Giuseppe has a real feel of character due to the rustic style and meticulous refurbishing in classic style that it has. Also, at the back it has a small alleyway with an open... More

Make a detour to visit this charming little wine bar. The food choice is limited but what there is can be heartily recommended. The wine list is exceptional. I keep coming back here.

They were both meant to be a mix of cold cuts and fine cheeses. One large platter appeared piled high with lettuce. It consisted of... More

Booked a table one week prior to the date. Went there on Time and told the person that I had a reservation. His answer was simple...they had forgotten to list our reservation down...I asked him weather they had a table available, yet he told me that the place was fully booked ( with half of it empty at that time...

Perfect little wine bar, great cheese and meat platters and a good selection of wine. Good service and very accommodating, 8 of us turned up late but nothing was to much trouble.

Great range of wines and the food is nice too. In summer one can even stay out in an alley beside the church.
