It was arranged to meet our good friend John and his lovely wife Sylvia for John's 70 years young birthday bash. Although we live in the top of Mellieha, we had not yet tried Zeffirino's.....well, the staff were smiling, the junior one maybe not so much, however, that did not take the big shine off a wonderful evening, and wonderful...

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!

We ate here several times during our stay. The staff were very friendly and offered advice on dishes to try and were able to accommodate allergies as well as personal tastes. The chef cooked up a special pasta dish, which was not on the menu and it was absolutely delicious. In fact, it was one of the best pasta dishes... More

Last sunday we dined at Zeffirino restaurant. As we entered we immediately noticed that the manager of the restaurant was very impolite, both with the staff and also with us, since she started to shout with one of the waiters. When we asked her to turn on the AC because of the heat she said it was on however it... More

I went here on a holiday with my mum and best friend, we were so impressed by the food that we returned several times whilst on our holiday. It was always very clean and as we passed it during the closing hours the owner could be seen scrubbing the floors. I had the best pork fillets ive ever tasted here,... More
