Been going to Malta for a good few years now and I must say we have seen quite a few proprietors over the years come and go but must say that the people that have it now won't let you down on quality, quantity, and exceptional value for money.

One of the best restaurants I ever been to in Malta. I had Scallops in a leek sauce as starter, just perfect As a main course I had Steak tornedos with Foie Gras, just cocked to perfection. And the staff was so friendly as it could be, top service.
