Lovely view whilst you eat

We stopped here after checking into our hotel next door, and the staff were friendly. They supplied high chairs and both food and drinks were well priced. The view has to be the main pulling factor and on a sunny day this i s a lovely place to come and eat together. There are varied cuisines on... read more

We happened upon this restaurant by chance as it's tucked away off the main road. The menu looked good so we decided to eat there, despite it being quiet. The waitress took great care explaining the menu to us and we chose the special of the day to start which was calamari. Soon after the waitress brought us some beautiful... More

Our second visit, last visit can only be described as a total farce, but as they offer Gluten Free food decided to give it another try. Firstly, the prices on board outside do not match prices on menu and charged, I am quite willing to accept they need to put up prices, but waiter should at least have advised this... More

Nice setting, we ate here several times the last time we stayed in Malta, however we found the food quality not as good this time. Pizza ok pasta dishes not so good very stodgy.

Evening meal for 5 adults and 1 toddler - arrived around 8pm to a relatively empty restaurant and was asked if we had booked - we were told we couldn't sit outside without a reservation but this wasn't a problem as we had a toddler in tow and whilst very adult friendly/romantic, outside may well have left us going home...

He had duck which was lovely and I had pizza which was exceptional for gluten free. There is also a Chinese menu there. It's not cheap but... More

We had seen on Trip Advisor that this restaurant was 100% gluten free and as there were two coeliacs in the party, we chose to eat here on our first night in Malta. There is an extensive menu including Chinese, Italian, British. Knowing that we could eat anything, made the choice difficult but we ended up choosing a set Chinese... More
