The fresh fish is excellent, always a good selection, the tuna and swordfish are highly
recommended, the staff are friendly and helpful to ensure you enjoy your dining experience.

“Good but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

The service was good, the food was good but nothing out of this world. Location is good, (Sliema sea front), But the prices are extremely high.

“Over-priced average food and rude manager”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The title says it all. After a busy day went for a meal near our hotel. This restaurant looked ok from outside but.... the food was very average. The manager gave us the last table near the door claiming the other tables were booked. He was lying as a few minutes later he split one of the "booked" tables to accommodate 2 more walk-ins. He was also very unpleasant with his staff, who were lovely and raised my report from 1 circle to 2. The food was, at best, indifferent. Beware the specials, they are not special and a lot dearer. Make sure you check the price. Also check the pasta small print - extra for main course not clearly indicated. This place is completely devoid of charm.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

I had a fairly basic chicken salad but it was cooked and presented really well and tasted yummy! The rest of the food ordered was equally good and we had no complaints. The service and prices were good! Would recommend this restaurant.
