We had a selection of fresh John Dory, Calamari and fresh local prawns. Our son had nuggets. The food was so fresh and so well cooked. The owner was extremely accommodating and so friendly. Definetely worth a visit!

We have lived in Xaghra for 5 years now. A visit to Ic-Cima is always a wonderful experience. This year I spoke with Chef Aron who came up with a very creative 4 course Christmas lunch menu. Included were offerings for vegetarians as well as lactose intolerant diners, another measure of the care the restaurant takes to cater for any... More

Excellent food. Did not touch the seafood but members of the family told me it was really good. I had a steak and it was fantastic. Highly recommendable. The service can be a bit slow if the restaurant is full, though. There is a lift for wheelchair users

The food was delicious but the service was too slow. Me and my boyfriend arrived at around 9pm and we didn't get our starter before 10.45pm. Main course arrived at 11.30pm. The table next to us had the same problem and in fact we weren't the only ones to complain. But at least, once the food finally arrived, it was... More

I would like to thank Joe, Aron, Tony and all the crew, for the excellent food and service that always was given to us and as well for the people that we send there to dine.

Known for it's great views but we happened to go on a dark and rainy evening, perhaps why those that go for the view were nowhere to be seen making it very quiet but it has to be said that the service and food were both excellent. This place came highly recommended from St Andrews Dive school and now us.

This restaurant boasts one of the loveliest views in Xlendi. It is family run and therefore you are in for a good treat. The food is lovely and being a meat lover, it scored all the good points for me. Their house made ice cream is lovely and specially prepared in house. The terrace offers a nice experience for dining.

Great location and view at Ic-Cima and lovely food at a reasonable price! Highly recommend the Lampuki as we'd had it elsewhere on the island and Ic-Cima's was the best by far. It's not Michelin but if your after a pleasant dinner, good food and very attentive staff you could do much worse than coming here.
