“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We were staying at the Pebbles Aparthotel, and had dinner here 3 or 4 times during our stay. I'm surprised at reviews saying the staff are unfriendly because we thought the table servers were all really friendly, and made us feel very welcome, remembering what we drank, and smiling as they passed, or stopping to chat. We thought the food was really good, and we ate in a lot of different places, including Tex Mex, and Medasia, and also Merill, which were all good for the most part. The sea bream at Black Gold was especially delicious, but we also had a nice curry, and my husband particularly enjoyed the melon with parma ham. We found the food a bit hit or miss on Malta in general, and we had the toughest musssels ever in a place along the road on the Strand, but can't remember the name. I liked the atmosphere in the bar, and enjoyed the live music on 3 occasions too. I didnt go to the toilets, but again, found that many loos in Malta were pretty unacceptable, so wouldnt be surprised if they were bad.
I'd certainly go back there if we visit Malta again.

“So so”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Forget the food, drinks and alcoholic cheap though. Waitress had a bit of an attitude as I couldn't drink (hence didn't order) alcohol. Soft drinks are a bit of the expensive size. Sleazy old men and Thai ladyboys aplenty.

“Run away from this place and quick.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Unfriendly service, staff carry lots of attitude, very unhelpful. Did not try the food. And if you happen to forget any of your belongings when the place is empty and almost closing, you will never see it again. Definitely a miss.

“Raw food!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Have used this bar few times looks great at the bar but toilets are horrific. Tiny and dirty.
Food is pretty poor, ordered pork chops and they were uncooked inside. Not just the middle but the whole chop! Complained to waiter who didn't offer to get another one just brought 2 free shots over to the table. Shall not use again.
