Great view, great service, average food

the restaurant has a splendid view over the bay. If you can sit on the terrasse, do so. Service is marvelous - friendly and genuinely interested in your experience. The food however is not so great. My pasta with seafood was bland and didn't really taste like much. I was offered a cognac when the... read more

This restaurant not only has some of the best views of Mellieha but the food is some of the best I've ever had. As it was for my birthday treat we had our table decorated, had a seating area outside near the play area to enjoy Pre dinner drinks and then moved inside s the children could play while we... More

Situated in Mellieha Bay, part of San Remo Beach Club, Il Padrino offers various dishes. I can only speak of the pizza which was mouth-watering and delicious. Service was at its best, with young international waiters/waitresses which were charming,,including the hostess of course. Il Padrino can boast of a lovely terrace right on the sea front, on the beach. It... More

We were 4 adults and two kids. We went to Il Padrino Restaurant to try it out. I asked for rabbit and asked the waitress if it was cooked in oil. She said that it was not. To my disappointment it was fried and soaked in oil. I did not want to make a fuss cause the other 3 members... More

A friendly family run place. Food is just above average, they make a decent risotto and a good pizza, the service is friendly allthough not professional, dishes should for instance be served so that we can enjoy them at the same time and not have to wait for each other. For families with small children there is a play area... More

This restuarant which is on the beach at Chandria Bay (Mallieha) has a large terrace which provides a great views of the whole of the bay. The tables are well spaced out so you do not feel crammed together and at evening the gentle lighting is not intrusive and so does not spoil the atomosphere. The menu offers locally sourced... More

A great place for good food in lovely surroundings. We live locally and have always enjoyed eating at the owner's restaurant below during the day, so we tried this restaurant one evening. We had a lovely evening, good food, great views from the restaurant, helpful waiting staff and also really friendly. No negatives at all - definitely one of our... More
