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.

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

The Gozo cheese used on the cheese platter and in the pasta dish from the starter options is very salty, as is all sheep's cheese, so may not be... More

Staying for 1 week in Qawra, this fantastic little place was right opposite our hotel and was so good we went 3 times.... Wine prices are very reasonable and the menu offered a very good choice of dishes. Particularly enjoyed the rabbit and the seafood sharing starter.............
