Great hidden away restaurant among the English pubs and Elvis clubs of Qawra. A real treat. Traditional Maltese food like black spaghetti with squid ink and deep fried calamares are beautifully executed and complimented by excellent Maltese wine. The bill was a lovely surprise too!

Found this place on 18th April by chance and ventured in. Great selection, atmosphere, service and beautifully cooked food. Very friendly with great hosts, Claudio in the kitchen and Pam front of house. So impressed we went back on the 19th & 20th. We couldn't believe this restaurant had only opened on 1st April. Highly recommend the ginger and lime... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. It was so good, we went back twice after our first visit. Food is excellent quality and, like all Maltese restaurants, very large portions. Might be better if you don't have large appetite to go for the smaller portions. They use all fresh ingredients and the food is cooked to order, so... More

we were a party of 10, went to this restaurant on the last night of our holiday and had a fabulous meal. It was of the highest quality and presentation from Claudio the owner/chef was faultless, just wish we had found it earlier, never mind will be back in September and this will be our first choice.
