We came across this lovely little place as we weren't sure where to eat. When I saw the trip advisor certificates on the door I knew we should be alright. We were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the food superb. We both had Maltese dishes. They do a Maltese set menu which is ideal if you don't know... More

The service was above and beyond. The owner gave a few extra perks (starters and drink) while the meals were being prepared. From the Maltese Rabbit, to Seafood platter and chicken, every meal in our group was superb. I returned for a second visit and enjoyed a pizza and excellent service. By far the best restaurant in the neighborhood.
