“Fine fish dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We followed the recommendations for this restaurant and arrived without reservation. A table for two was no problem and the service was prompt, friendly and efficient. In no time we had a basket of bread, the menus, a drink and an explanation of the fish menu. No complaints here, except that the beer was not quite cold and a little flat. We both had starters and the portions were generous and delicious. We also both chose fish although done differently. Mine, packed in rock salt and flamed, was presented to me at the table like that before serving. It tasted as good as it looked. My partner's fish was just as scrumptious. Certainly a restaurant to visit when in Valetta

“Elegant and exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

The venue combines modern elegance with historic architecture. A wide selection of dishes is complemented by a good wine list - all at reasonable prices. The fish of the day is a highlight, while the service was professional, yet personal. A good choice all round!
