IMPRESSIVE He switched on the extractor, it almost pulled my toupee off my head (only joking) but it was very strong, He happened to be cooking his Signature T bone..... Well....I... More

I came here for lunch and had the homemade beef burger which was excellent. Service was good. I would definitely recommend it if you are in the area. Geordies made exceptionally welcome.

We ate here to escape the weekend feeding frenzy at our resort hotel. The food was good home cooked fare, my husband had the paella which was lovely and full of interesting seafood and I had the sea bass which was also good. We were the only tourists there, the other diners were all local Maltese people (which is always... More

My wife and I tried out this restaurant yesterday. We shared a Maltese platter which claimed to have 'Maltese sausage' but actually had a smoked, and very artificial looking and tasting version which is not the traditional fare we expected. Great location for lunch, especially on sunny wintry days - which are plentiful here in Malta.

For an establishment that proudly display's a Tripadvisor four and a half star rating card that we thought we'd be safe. Checked online when we were waiting for our meal to find that the rating shown did not match with the current one online. You need to sort this L'Escargot as you are blatantly lying to your patrons. Three occupied... More

Had a wee flying visit to Malta last week. Once again Norbert & staff surpassed themselves. Popped in for a pot of Earl Grey, decided to stay for a meal. Tasty & filling as ever. Consistently tasty

Meat of good standard quality, prices corrects. Good service. We choose 2 cheeseburgers, my wife didn't like the steak but i find it correct. Good fries, low prices for wines and beverages.
