We visited the place twice during our stay in Mellieha and were absolutely delighted with the food and the service. Good value for money. The place deserves our sincere recommendations.

Good price, decent food for a good price. Great for the low budget family looking to have a 12 euro meal. Pizza is very good!

The food we had was lovely, especially the octopus! If you want the Maltese set menu, make sure you get there before 8pm as they don't serve it after 8 even though they advertise it outside.

Our visit in the autumn to Zeffirino just proved that the quality of the food and the service is as good as ever. Many of my foreign visitors have declared this their favourite eating place in the Bay.

We highly recommend the place. The owner is most welcoming. The portion are very generous and simply delicious. We tried the fish and pasta. Very good. You should have seen the desserts. We will go back for sure. Extremely Clean!
