As 14 years veterans of dining in Malta I can say with absolute sincerity this is one of Malta's little Gems. Great friendly service, quality food across the board, fresh fish daily, steak's of highest quality & cooked to perfection. All the food is fresh and prepared in the kitchens, no tinned rubbish, go there and enjoy a truly pleasant... More

We stayed in the San Antonio Hotel which is across the road, not even a walk from the main reception. There are a number of restaurant’s nearby but none that offered the same sort of atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and the food was really good. There is a large and varied menu to provide for all tastes. There... More

This without doubt was the best meal we had during our week in Malta - galling as we found it on day 5 of our holiday and it was opposite our hotel window! Good homely food, looking like your mother had made it, lovely rustic surroundings and great service - absolutely top quality - we had Lasagne (Exceptional) two Pasta... More

A lot of Maltesian food, wines and beer. You get large portions so don't order three courses at once. Good service and especially good atmosphere.

The best restaurant to eat in Bugibba, friendly staff and excellent service. Eat there 8 times in a fortnight, steak's cooked to perfection and the lasagne is the best I have every tasted.

It transpired the taxi driver that picked us up at the airport also owned the restaurant! We always chat to the taxi drivers as what they don't know is not worth bothering about. Anyway it just cropped up in conversation and what I liked is he didn't push it; he just said well I hope you come. I had a... More

My top choice to eat in Qawra. Lovely warm feel to the place. Nice friendly staff and good food. The maltese menu is good, I've tried all on the menu and not disappointed, the octopus stew is my choice though. The waiters and waitresses are very attentive, and make you feel very welcome.

Very good food, large portions, low prices, great staff and cosy resturant. We actually went to this place three nights in a row, after trying a couple of others in the area. I had a starter, a main dish and beer/wine, and never paid more than 20 eur in total. They do got more expensive dishes, but the local dishes... More

This little restaurant is a must if you are visiting Qawra, They have such a good varied menu, both traditional Maltese and the usual things. the food is made to order so can take a little while, but worth the wait.
