Went to the Cross Keys restaurant whilst on a weeks break. What an absolute delight. The food was to die for, the service 100%, and real value for money. Anyone going to Malta should use this restaurant and pub

Ate in all 3 parts of the crosskeys over a period of 6 weeks in Malta. It becam a home from home. Staff were really good and nothing too much trouble.

This is an inexpensive, friendly place to enjoy a family meal. The service is wonderful, the waiters engage in some conversation and are very helpful.

What a lovely Pub! With the atmosphere just oozing out of every wood panel, you'll feel as if you are in England itself! After a drink or two, a round of darts, and a good singalong, we headed upstairs for a pizza.... and boy, did the cook deliver or what? Excellent service, with super servers. Have returned time and again!

My partner and I went for a quiet evening, but will not go again as the waiters were constantly staring at us as if they had nothing else to do we felt so uncomfortable. We took two fillet steaks, very tender good portion, potatoes and veg very tasty. Cannot complain about the food.

This place can be one of the best for food (pizzeria). The pizza is excellent value when good. Place can be very hot in summer if the air-con is not on. Value for money.
