It was not the first time we visited the "new" Overflow. But this time we had a big supirise. The filet steak we ordered was amazing!!! Best Quality, cooked in the best way and very tasty. With a fresh salad- a perfect meal. Thank you very much for this wonderful meal!

The menu is not overly large, but more than adequate. Not overly priced and clean. Food was cooked to a high standard. Would visit again.

Overall good food and decent service but I think they were a bit under staffed. There are better places in Qawra to go, although this one hhas potential.
