“a lunchtime stop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

fairly good service in a nice central location in Valletta, the chicken salad was very nice, though didn't really consist of what was on the menu!
Lunch for two with drinks for under 20 euro.
functional and acceptable but not especially memorable.

“Drinks and Appetizer”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We stopped here for a mid-afternoon snack while visiting Malta on a recent cruise. Wine was good as was the appetizer. Service was very slow and had to try and get the attention of the waitress in order to get served.

“Dreadful except for friendly staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Stopped here for lunch -lovely position to people watch! Staff really friendly altho service slow. Both white wine and fizzy water were warm. Bruschetta consisted of stale bread with tomatoes and cheese. Pigeons also a nuisance (which hasn't been such a problem at other eateries).

“Dubious quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

We took a break from sightseeing, and ordered two glasses of wine, happy to take a break in the warm afternoon sun.
The glass of cold dry white wine, was white & served in a glass but alas failed in all other areas, whilst the glass of Merlot delivered was highly individual in character.
