“Delicious food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014

We visited as a group of friends looking for a drink and some snacks and ended up having a full dinner. The waiters were really nice and helpful and the food was delicious from the starter to the dessert. Will visit again for sure.

“Wow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2014 via mobile

So a party of five dined there last night and the food was amazing, we all enjoyed our meals and they were all huge portions of delicious delights. We ordered an extra side and although it was amazing it wasn't needed there was more than enough food. Cocktails was amazing too. Great night out in Malta's capital.

“Poor Service ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We were sited very quick and order so taken immediately, we waited 20mins for the drinks to come and over an hour for our food, whilst we waited the waiter came twice asking us if we ordered more bottles of water, which we didn't.
The food was excellent which was a nice way to end the night.

It is a family run restaurant.The owners are very friendly and helpful and besides that ,the waiters are very polite and ready to help You. The service is excellent and You can be served also outside near the Sea. The choice of food is very vast where You can have a platter ,Pasta and also chef's specialities like Fish and meat . The plates are decorated 5 star by super chefs ! They have a large selection of sweets and coffees ! They have also gluten free menu ! For sure I will reccomend this restaurant !

“Poor service and unprofessional staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We went there for a birthday dinner and we were a big table of 18 people. The service was very bad and the head waiter did not even know what he was doing. He was very arrogant. The food was not bad but it would have been better if it was cooked to one's liking. The waiters did not even know the difference between and espresso and an espresso macchiato!!! And the big one is that it was a birthday dinner, we had ordered a cake three days before but they still did not have enough cake for all of us. I am definitely not going back again!!
