My husband's favourite

This restaurant serves traditional Maltese food, the meals are cooked to order, so don't expect to be in and out like a fast food venue. We have been to this restaurant numerous times over the last 10 years and never been disappointed.

Excellent food, huge portions, pleasant staff, nice ambience. Prices had gone up a bit in the 2 years since we had last been here (Felt Malta was a little more expensive in general perhaps) - but still a very worthwhile dining experience.

We had left it late go eat one night and went to a couple of places that had closed.we weren't hoping for much as we were in the neon area of qawra- then stumbled across this place. There's a lovely warm atmosphere, lovely traditional decor, plenty of choice of wine and Mediterranean food. The pizza was nice (I had a... More

We came here on the recommendation of a local taxi driver and was not disappointed. The decor is very quaint and the staff are so lovely. Most importantly the food is out of this world. We came here twice in a week and could easily have eaten here every night. It was also very reasonably priced. I had octopus stew... More

I went here a few times. Its a very nice place with lovely staff and great food. The set menu is very good and cheap. The main menu is great, with a little bit of everything on it. There is no way you'll ever leave this place without a full stomach. The wine is also great here too! Me and... More

This place was packed so we assumed that it was going to be good. We had to sit outside,it was a very windy night and we were under a sort of tent which constantly felt like it was about to collapse. We didn't mind sitting outside apart from the fact that it made us almost invisible and the service was... More

I can't praise this restaurant enough. They serve a wide variety of international and Maltese dishes using good quality ingredients brilliantly cooked. And the portions are very large! The wine list has an extensive range of local wines; all of the ones we tried were good and the ones at the higher end (still very well priced) were excellent. The... More

Went to Mother Earth with family who live in Malta on Saturday 7th March and had a fantastic meal. Michael and his staff treated us so well and the food was beautiful. All five if us decided to try the swordfish and it was so good. Be warned portions are big so you need to go hungry. You also need... More
