“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Started with a Crab Cake salad which was excellent. My main course was Lampuki (a white fish which was in season). The wine list was as good as the food. Friendly and efficient service. This is a small restaurant so I would strongly recommend that people book a table.

“memorable capistrano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

This small restaurant gave us a warm welcome. It is beautifully decorated in maroon with old copper vessels, paintings and wood. We were given a lovely expresso sized cup of vegtable broth with good bread to sip before the lunch we had ordered. Fresh seafood, fish and salad with potatoes and a good maltese wind provided us with an excellent lunch. We had attentive service throughout and met the chef at the end of the meal. It was a memorable lunch

“Restaurant know”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Welcoming restaurant. The decoration is simple, he(it) does not seem like much in the entrance(entry)! Very pleasant service(department), home-made and excellent cooking(kitchen). A restaurant which deserves to be known!

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Restaurant was recommended by a local which is good as we might not have noticed it tucked away off main thoroughfare.
We ate squid, red snapper and sea bass which were shown to us first, so fresh. The service was impeccable and the highlight was raspberry ice cream to die for!!

“More than excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

We found this restaurant from our Gusto Booklet. Though its a small restaurant, the staff was really amazing in explaining the dishes, how they cook them and everything. Delicious food and some good wine made our night special and amazing at a very reasonable price.
