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.............

Dined here a few times while in Malta... always great service, food superbly cooked (Recommend the Lamb Shank) Staff are friendly, made us feel very comfortable. Had some good laughs with the English waiter (don't know his name). Overall great place to spend your evening, keep up the good work :)
