Worth a try , a bit pricey,

Location is great for its view, the seafood is average for Malta, the prices are too high, though, for the regular local level. The best times of this restaurant are clearly behind it and despite the potential the management does not seem to care one bit. And they seem to have issues with cc... read more

What a perfect way to spend an evening. The staff were very informative and friendly. An extensive wine menu that accompanied the delicious food perfectly. This is all topped off with a beautiful view. We were so surprised at how reasonable the bill was. I would thoroughly recommend a visit here. I'll definitely be going back on my next trip.

The night here was amazing. Fabulous food, great wine list and the view across the is bay is second to none. The seafood was cooked to perfection and surprisingly reasonably priced. Would revisit but unfortunately no time on this visit, highly recommend

There appears to be a major problem here. We actually didn't get as far as the restaurant - the bar was bad enough. This is such a shame, the position is lovely but the hotel doesn't seem to want any customers. We were completely unable to get a reasonable coffee here and service is completely absent.

One of the friendliest bars and restaurants in St Pauls bay, really warm welcome, and just at the door of our hotel. Fantastic views, and great food.

Everytime we visit this restaurant we are always amazed by the quality of the food and the service. For those who like fish, this is the place to be with fresh fish being served daily. For meat lover, just like myself, you will not be disappointed! Lovely sea view too!

Guide book rated this restaurant so we tried it. I was hoping to try rabbit stew but not on menu. Don't go here if you are short of time. The place was not busy and when we first arrived nobody was actually eating. Almost an hour passed before our starters arrived! (Had to revise the time we'd booked a taxi... More

The service was not up to standard. Given the high price, the food was most disappointing. The only positive side was the view. For me this is not a place worth visiting.

The experience of our group of four was as anticipated from the reviews we had seen -- a drawn out meal of about 3 hours, but worth the wait. Seated outdoors on a warm evening with a beautiful view and good wine, which was served without the delays associated with the food, we could forgive the fact that it took... More
