Visited the pizzeria section of the restaurant in August 2015 and was not overly impressed. Had a sharing platter to start which was very simply frozen food put in the oven. Had a meaty pizza which was close to bring nice but just lacked flavour. Wouldn't go again or recommend to a friend.

The food presentation is very lovely, stunning views from the balcony upstairs, generous portions and most of all good food! Had spaghetti carbonara and my partner had the stuffed chicken, both recommended. Also had a glass of white wine (don't know which brand) however was perfect

We visited Cross Keys twice during our Malta holiday and after such excellent service and food on both occasions I had to take to writing about it, seriously lovely food, atmosphere and staff with a great view. We went as a family of 4 and were delighted. Highly recommended.

Not only are the dishes presented beautifully, they also taste amazing. And brilliant service and lovely waiters and waitresses. Definately a place to go, and if you would like a drink before or after there is a lovely pub just downstairs :)

Through recommendation we decided to visit Cross Keys, and I have to say we weren't disappointed, they were able to accommodate our party of 15, the service was great. They were really helpful and couldn't do enough as one of the youngsters in our party didn't like anything on the menu, at which point they said they would make her... More

Dont' get me wrong the the food is excellent, I cannot fault it, but waiting service is very poor. My husband had to wait over half an hour for his coffee and that was asking twice. I ask the waiter if they did prickly pear liquor he went away and i never saw him again.

Recently visited for take away pizza, told it would take 20 minutes, after 30 minutes the pizza was just going into the oven. Why don't restaurants talk to customers! Was told afterwards there was only one person in the kitchen, do I need to know that or should the management be sorting out staffing shortages. Shame because the pizza was... More

Went with family and friends and were easily accommodated on a table for 12 the views from the balcony over Mellheiha bay are excellent especially as the sun sets. You can sit inside or out on a terrace. The food was as usual plentiful and tasty. This is regular venue on Malta trips with conduit ant good food and friendliness.
