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

There are several quite good and inexpensive restaurants within walking distance around the southern edge of Mellieha Bay so we were able to try a few. At Zeffirino, I had the Linguine alla Vongole (clams), which was excellent and we all enjoyed the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

We visited the restaurant a few times on our 2 week stay. I have had a gastric bypass so my food portions are tiny, this was not a problem and the portions were adjusted to suit me. The corn fed chicken was amazing!! The waitresses are lovely and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend this eaterie... More
