We visited in April. Four of us had what was one of the best dining experiences ever! When we visited the overflow had only been open for some weeks, it did not seem to have had any teething troubles that many establishments suffer during the settling in period. Very good hospitality by the staff & service was as fast as... More

I had read the reviews about this restaurant on trip-advisor before we left for our holiday. We were not disappointed the food was taste and well presented, the whole atmosphere was friendly and inviting. It's owned by a lovely couple the husband is the chef and his wife runs the dining room. If you're in Qawra you must try it... More

Found this via trip advisor and decided to visit. So pleased we did, service was brilliant, food was good, tucked away behind the main road from the two big hotels on the seafront. Very pleasant evening out, Highly recommend, especially those who go AI to the hotels.

It was yet again a lovely evening. The food is excellent, and both Claudio and Pamela make us feel so welcome. The ambience gives you a calm and comfortable feeling. Again the food was perfect, everything was freshly cooked and the sweets are to die for. We highly recommend it, and we can say, we will return.

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
