You can have typically italian pasta and pizza but they also do freshly cooked fish of all kinds. I had the sea bream which was delicious. You... read more

Friendly staff and varied menu. As well as Maltese food, they provided favourite British dishes too. The milkshakes are delicious!

Very good food (we had fresh fish) and even better price, since we also had bottle of a very decent white wine. I was surprised by side dish which wasn't chips, because in every restaurant you get it by default, but oven cooked potatoes with different vegetables - carrot, cauliflower, cabbage - and spices in it were excellent - something...

We came here on one of those nights when you just don't know what you want. We nearly got a takeaway. I'm so glad we didn't. There was no disappointment in either the food or the service. Everything was cooked well and the food arrived in good time. I would highly recommend.

We booked for New Year's Eve and weren't disappointed by the food, drink or service. The starter would have made a main course with a few chips and the steaks were excellent, accompanied by several pounds of chips and the sweets were a delight. Considering the quality & quantity, the prices are exceptionally reasonable. A bloke on the next table... More
