Dined here twice within my week in Malta. Excellent food (sublime Tiramisu) and the whole team were friendly, including the local chef and his wife, who works a day job too in an office!! Good range on menu too, inc. fresh fish and Maltese dishes.

We dined here twice in July. Superb food and very friendly service from Claudio and his team. The Pasta is perfectly Al dente, all the dishes we tried were cooked and presented to perfection. This restaurant really deserves to succeed!

There're few things that make this restaurant special. First, and foremost, is the food! Of few places we went to have the Mediterranean food, this place, so far, is the best. The owner is friendly -- we arrived a little early, but he welcomed us in nevertheless. The serving staff was super friendly and polite, too. The restaurant is located... More

Visited on a Saturday evening for a surprise family meal; fortunately we weren't in a hurry, it took over an hour for our order to arrive, and the restaurant wasn't that busy. However the food was lovely when it did arrive. If they sorted out the service it would be great.

I would like to comment on the food of this restaurant but after 25 mins left after nobody actually acknowledged our presence other than giving us a menu. I realise that the poor two girls were being left to do everything but if you don't even have the good sense of putting even a jug of water in front of... More

Ahoy, thought I would give this restaurant a go from reading glowing reviews. The food for what it was nice butniver priced compared to quality of food i had elsewhere. Liked the atmosphere of the restaurant and the outside sitting area. Waiteress was a bit over the top for me. I know some people like this but not for me... More

Ate here twice during our stay. First time we had a rib eye steak & sea bream with a bottle of prosecco for €62, second time had grilled octopus and sea bream with prosecco for €61. The steak was cooked to perfection & I only didn't have it the second time because I had struggled to eat the whole meal... More
