I was recommended this restaurant by my hotel as I wanted to try genuine authentic Maltese cuisine. I don't have anything to compare it to but I thought it was very good.

Excellent food and good value. The atmosphere is great. When very busy the service is not as good as it could be. The locals love this place.

I dined hear several times with my son and his family after been disappointed with the food in our Hotel (DB Sanantonio) across the road. We enjoyed the fresh Octopuss and Sea Bream. The staff is very good and they have an excellent chef here>

We have been to Ta Pawla many times and each time it just keeps getting better and better. We cannot congratulate the staff enough, the food is magical and the staff can't stop spoiling you. Love the way you get the fillet steak exactly how we asked for it. Brilliant job. We will definitely be back

Off the seafront restaurant ( amongst many others), with a nice "local" feel. Service very friendly, good food.

The food and service at Ta Pawla is gorgeous and very very good value for money. This is one of my favourite restaurants in Qawra.
