“Perfect cup of tea and lovely selection of cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This was a regular place we stopped and had a cup of tea - and I have to say it was lovely and a pot of tea for two gave us 2 or 3 cups each! We called here late afternoon on three or four occasions and tried the cakes - all beautiful and very reasonably priced. We thought on our last day as we had a late flight we would have a sandwich here but were a little disappointed as it could have been better and the chips that accompanied it were stone cold. Don't be put off though as they have quite a few tasty morsels to try by way of little savoury pies and pasta. Lovely little place and the staff were friendly.

“Stopping Stage !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

It's a nice place to stop and rest after a day of shopping in Valletta, for a tea/coffee break and a cake, lunch or even an evening platter and some wine. The portions are good, waiting staff pleasant and prices are to everyone's budget :) I enjoyed it, you should too :)

“Forget it!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I went to this restaurant yesterday for lunch. It was a HORRIBLE experience throughout. Waitress was bordering on being downright rude. Very abrupt, almost 'throwing' the cutlery on the table.
Food took ages to arrive. When it did, it was hardly edible.
2 plates of pasta tuna & mushroom consisted in a serving of severely overcooked pasta, with a smattering of uncooked tomato pulp, some tuna and a couple of mushrooms thrown in for good measure.
The 'cannelloni' with ricotta & spinach were simply glorified ravioli covered in a mixture of red & white sauce and 'baked'.
As for my Maltese platter, well a spoonful of 'bigilla' (Maltese bean humus), some rucola and lettuce, some sweetcorn and some tomatoes. 4 slices of 'gbejniet' (peppered goat cheeselets) and four HALF 'galletti' ( Maltese savoury biscuits).
Never again!!!

“Horrible smoothy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Horrible smoothy only milk shaked inside with no fruit.
Really disappointing and even worse service the waiter seemed waiting for our leaving

“Good for breakfast, okay for dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

More of a breakfast place - my wife and son loved the pancakes and there were nice sandwiches etc! Decent pasta and pizza too.
