Brilliant views from the balcony which is what attracted us. Excellent value for money but I would suggest give the appetisers a miss or you'll have no room for anything else. Ordered garlic mushrooms and cheesy garlic bread for starters. This itself was enough and had to leave some. Ordered beef stroganoff which was excellent this came with rice potatoes... More

We booked this restaurant for my 60th birthday celebration, being our first visit to Malta. The fine dining restaurant was perfectly located with superb views. The service was very good, the owner providing the transport back to the hotel. Meals were superb, prawn cocktail was delicious and the fillet Diane outstanding. Will certainly consider a return visit if lucky enough... More

My wife had a risotto which was very poor and dry.Not even made with risotto rice. I had spaghetti with shell fish. This was not what I was expecting. The pasta was over cooked and was more like a pasta tomato stew. All you could tast was tomato.this was fine dinning! I suggest the chef goes to the commando Restaurant... More

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
