Great location and good food

This restaurant is located on the quayside of the marina at Birgu (with its multi-million pound floating gin palaces interspersed with some beautiful big yachts) with wonderful views across to Isla and Valletta. It is right alongside the maritime museum's old static steam engine with its enormously... read more

A group of 6 of us had a lovely evening at this restaurant last night. The food was delicious, we had an assortment of delicious starters and super fresh seared tuna and grilled calamari for mains. My husband also raved about his steak which came perfectly cooked. The wine was properly chilled (not always a given) and the service great.... More

After a great luzzu ride around the 3 cities, the missus treated me to a birthday lunch at two and a half lemon. As other reviewers amply commented, the location cannot be faulted - it makes you want to whip our a camera and snap shots of everything. I was a in a daring mood so I ordered tuna, mentally...

This seemed the nicest of the few places on the Vittoriosa waterfront, so I went there for lunch. Nice outdoor terrace, with lovely views of the waterfront, the marina, and across to Senglea with the houses crowding the steep hill. I was welcomed by a very young waitress (turned out, she had just finished high school). She brought the water... More

I have eaten at "Two and a Half Lemon" but hired the chef from this restaurant - Chef Agius - to cater a birthday dinner off-site for 35 guests. He did an incredible job. I had never been to Malta and he had been recommended by a friend for whom he had prepared a fantastic meal on a sailing ship.... More

Went today at 1pm while visiting Birgu. Chose this place located in the Capitainerie (in the Birgu marina) because it proudly shows a 'certificate of excellence 2014' given by Marc Charron from TripAdvisor. Oh boy! Had to wait for about 15' to get a small sparkling bottle and 20' more to get my club sandwich which was absolutely the worst... More

We went for Sunday lunch. Maybe because we came late (at 2pm) or maybe due to heat wave, but the place was nearly empty. The menu wasn't vast, but the food was good. The only problem was with service. There were just two tables occupied and 3 waitresses serving the tables, yet, somehow there was lack of communication between the... More
