First Rate Pizza

We usually have a few beers in Reflections which is at the top of the square then go to Cross Keys for a Pizza and if you like good Pizza this will tick all the boxes but all the food is good and its popular with the locals which is a good sign.

This place has been looking over Santa Marija Estate in Melliha for decades and has three levels of dining - basement sports bar, ground floor pizzeria and first floor fine dining. The menu has a good choice though not inventive, and the sweets rather limited, but the portions, service and dishes are really tremendous. As a family we had the... More

We were looking for the restaurant and thought we'd found it when we were waved round the corner from the Cross Keys pub. Looking at the Tripadvisor pictures and comparing with the menu we chose from - we had obviously missed something. We were in a pizza cafe but were comforted by the pressence of a reasonable number of locals.... More

Biggest Calzone I've ever seen. Very tasty and the wine was good. I was the only diner in (only person all together except for the occasional takeaway collector) but it was a comfortable atmosphere

Could be a nice little pub if they put five minutes thought in to it. There are so many wires hanging all over the place it looks like it is being refurbished. There is nowhere comfortable to sit and after a long day tracking around Malta a comfy spot is what is needed. Toilets are a bit dodgy also. Cistern... More
