We visited this restaurant once during our weeks stay having visited last year also. Not sure we were quite as wowed as last year but that takes nothing away from the quality of food and friendly service. Fish was lovely and fresh and the cheese board is well worth a try.

This restaurant was absolutely wonderful with a nice menu on offer at very reasonable prices. The service was second to none and the staff were exceptionally warm and helpful. As for the food, it was by far the finest I've had in a long time and the sauces are finger licking good. If in Malta, this is a must to... More

We chose this restaurant for our last meal of the holiday and were not disappointed! The food was gorgeous- and plentiful. The service was also excellent, very friendly, and the complimentary liquor with the bill was appreciated! So many places in the area have very 'samey' menus but the overflow had a wide range of things to choose from. Don't... More

We were given a warm welcome and shown to our table. Booking is advisable if you want to sit outside but there were plenty of seats inside. We were given an amuse bouche and some Maltese bread with flavoured butters whilst waiting for the meal to be prepared. The staff were all friendly with our waiter taking a lot of... More

The meal started well with some pretty good wine, but quickly went downhill when the starters arrived. The prawns were semi translucent and not really very nice at all. The tuna steak made to the chefs recommendation was overdone and crumbled to the consistency of tinned tuna, potatoes were also extremely dry. Was the first time I'd had the local... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your meal at our restaurant,however there are several comments you made that seem strange to us.Firstly The tuna steak is normally served on the rare side but the choice is the customers NOT The chefs as you stated.They would never recommend Fresh Tuna to be cooked well done.Our potatoes are either Roast/French Fries...
