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.

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.

Located in a busy street full of various restaurants, Ta' Pawla can be easily overlooked. It was due to Tripadvisor positive reviews that I decided to give it a try and I was not to be disappointed. It was very busy on a Saturday night and I had to wait for a few mins until I was given a seating.... More

I have been going to Malta for over 20 years, and this little restaurant is fantastic. I have looked at some of the older reviews and they say it was not a good place to eat well I can tell you that I have been going for the last 3 years and never had a bad meal. The food is... More
